With the region’s office market still in flux, the developer behind Arbor Row in central Tysons will bet on housing instead.

Cityline Partners recently submitted a proposal to Fairfax County asking to swap an office building that had previously been approved for the neighborhood’s Block C2 for a residential high-rise with ground-floor retail.

“This proposal to develop Block C2 with a high-rise residential building with ground floor retail/service uses and significant park space will progress Arbor Row into a more complete and vibrant neighborhood,” land use lawyer John McGranahan wrote in a statement of justification on the applicant’s behalf.

Encompassing 19.4 acres along Westpark Drive near Tysons Galleria, the plan for Arbor Row was originally approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in 2012. It calls for eight blocks of development, including the completed Nouvelle apartments.

Construction is underway on the Monarch condominiums and The Mather, a two-building senior living facility.
