Redevelopment Of Rosslyn's RCA Building To Multifamily Put On Hold

The RCA Building at 1901 North Moore St. in Rosslyn.

The owner of Rosslyn's 48-year-old RCA building had hoped to redevelop the site into a residential tower, but that plan appears to be on hold.

Weissberg Corp. has paused its redevelopment efforts indefinitely and is instead focused on leasing the office space in the 12-story, 144K SF building, the Washington Business Journal reports.

The aging building at 1901 North Moore St. sits about a block from the Rosslyn Metro station near the Central Place and 1812 North Moore towers that have been built in recent years. It currently serves as Weissberg's headquarters and is home to several other businesses, including Inlingua, Eagle Technologies and Central Coffee. 

The landlord filed a preliminary site plan application with Arlington County in early 2017 to develop a 24-story residential tower on the site with 407 units, a mix of apartments and condos, and 13K SF of retail. The manager of Weissberg's real estate portfolio told the WBJ it plans to revisit the redevelopment plans eventually, but is now focused on leasing the building's available office space.
