Project Scope

Located in the Courthouse neighborhood of Arlington, VA, 2201 Wilson Apartments was a dated residential apartment building with a large yet lackluster ground floor amenity space. Equity Residential tapped Streetsense to fully renovate the ground floor space – including the lobby, leasing center, lounge, and fitness center – to appeal to a younger, more design-savvy demographic. To create a sense of arrival and expand the living space for residents, Streetsense transformed the floor’s communal areas into a series of rooms that undulate from formal to informal and group-focused to personalized in nature. A mix of distinctly modern and vintage elements – think bright pops of color and fascinating textures alongside a variety of brass light fixtures and antique mirrors – lends a casual but sophisticated character to the space. The property’s new dynamic and sustainable design elevates the residential experience at every touchpoint.
