“The Loren,” the apartment building under construction on Arlington Boulevard in Seven Corners next to the new Hampton Inn & Suites, is scheduled to open in late spring 2017, reports marketing consultant Roger Mecca of Weinberg Harris & Associates.

The townhouses along South Street.

The building, which is being developed by the Bozzuto Group, will have 185 units, including 14 three-bedroom rental townhouses facing South Street. The other multifamily units will be a mix of one-bedroom, one-bedroom-plus-den, two-bedroom, and two-bedroom-plus-den units.

The courtyard

The first floor will have 15,000 square feet of commercial space. There is a focus on having a mix of retail uses, including fast casual sit-down dining, service retail, and fitness, Mecca said. “There is lots of interest,” but the developer is not ready to announce whether any tenants have signed on yet.

Amenities for residents include a resort-style pool; a club room with lounge seating, fireplace, and billiards table; a lobby lounge; a cyber café; a private courtyard with a grilling area, seating, and outdoor fireplace; bike storage; a private residential parking garage; and shuttle transportation to the East Falls Church Metro station. There will also be a community courtyard with seating for residents and retail visitors.
