South Queen Street Development Project (SQDP)
What the Development proposes:

  1. Expansion of Queen Street, using the area between 2413 and 2426 Queen Street.

  2. 12 four-story, modern-looking town homes leveraging the expansion to Queen Street and two single-family homes facing Pierce Street.

  3. Each town home will have a garage and an extended driveway for parking.

  4. Paths for general plumbing, electrics, etc., are not decided, but could likely extend to Queen Street along with the new road.

Arlington County Information and Hearing Schedule:

Arlington County maintains a right of way for a street between 2413 and 2426 Queen Street.  Note: The developer could potentially leverage Pierce Street or 24th Street, but asked the County to exercise the Queen Street right of way.
The project requires amending Arlington’s Master Transportation Plan’s Street Map and re-zoning the land behind Queen Street.
This project is at its initial steps with the County and there are three important hearings, which will be advertised in local newspapers after June 16.  These include:

  • June 28 – Transportation Commission hearing and vote;
  • July 2 – Planning Commission hearing and vote; and
  • July 14 – County Board hearing and vote.


Note: This may be listed on the agenda as “Club Manor Estates”.
The Transportation and Planning Commissions will make recommendations to the County Board, who will hold a vote on whether to approve the MTP amendment.

Steps Taken by the Forest Hills Board:
Captured information from the County and developer in our June 5 meeting.
Developed a survey to distribute after the meeting Saturday June 16, to capture neighborhood feedback.
Organized a temporary Queen Street Development Working Group.  To participate, please contact Andy Hoffman at Andrea@girl73.com.
Asked our legal counsel to review this proposed project and determine our options.

Next Steps by the Forest Hills Board:

  1. Capture feedback from the community after the initial meeting.
  2. Leverage this input to develop next steps and a go-forward plan and strategy.
  3. Provide representation at the County hearings noted above.


How You Can Help:
Participate in the working group.
Attend the developer information session this Saturday at 10AM at Army Navy Country Club and ask questions.
