About the Project
The Metropolitan Park Public Space project is a joint effort between JBG Smith and Arlington County as part of the Board approved Met Park Redevelopment Project. The project involves the development of the Master Plan and design guidelines for this wonderful new community space. The existing two-acre park, will be increased by .56 acres and design for the park will be informed by approved site plan conditions and community input.
The site was first presented in the Pentagon City Phased Development Site Plan and adopted by the County Board in 1976.
The developer will provide .56 acres of open space, the last segment of a two-acre central public open space called for in the 2004 Metropolitan Park Design Guidelines, and two additional public open space areas, totaling about 18,000 square feet, facing the central park.
On Dec. 14, 2019 the County Board approved a plan for the first phase of Metropolitan Park’s development, which includes public open spaces.
About the Process
The first public meeting was held on Thursday, February 20. Arlington County, JBG Smith, and James Corner Field Operations gave a presentation and followed it with an open house style feedback opportunity. See the presentation here and community comments here.
A second round of community engagement took place in early May, 2020 and is currently being used to inform the next round of updates for the Met Park Public Space design. Please click here to view the video presentation or look at the powerpoint at your own pace.
