DC-based Hoffman & Associates, co-developer of Phases 1 and 2 of the massive The Wharf development on DC’s southwest waterfront, crosses the Potomac with plans for a residential development in Ballston.

Hoffman & Associates has partnered with Arlington-based developer Snell Properties for a multi-family project at 4600 Fairfax Drive that will include more than 500 apartments and townhouses.

When completed, it will consist of two buildings. A seven storey north building and a four storey south building totaling 530,000 square feet.

The developers have submitted their initial site plan application to Arlington County, starting the review process.

If approved, the new development will replace an existing hotel, owned by Snell Properties, which was built in 1986. No construction schedule has been set.

It would be the third development in Northern Virginia for Hoffman. The developer is innovating next spring in West Falls, a 1.2 million square foot, 10 acre mixed-use development in Falls Church. It also partnered with Metro for the redevelopment of the West Falls Church metro station into a mixed-use project.

Hoffman is also the managing member of Hoffman-Madison Waterfront, the joint venture with Madison Marquette, on the $ 3.6 billion development of The Wharf.

Snell Properties, with development projects throughout the DC metro area and the southeastern United States, received Arlington County approval earlier this year for two residential towers at 1820 N. Fort Myer Drive in Rosslyn, a 30-story tower and a 31-story tower, totaling 740 residential units, known as the Ames Center.
