May 24, 2015 , UPDATED Sept 2019 Town Center: Douglas Park & Arlington Village
The Avalon is within Columbia Pike's Town Center. It's at the corner of South Walter Reed Drive and Columbia Pike, which is a very busy area with some interesting restaurants and businesses within the same block. Right across Walter Reed is Pike Park and within a block is Penrose Square which is the Town Center's main square. The Arlington Cinema 'N' DraftHouse is across the street on Columbia Pike. This area's walkability is 91 and is listed as a Walker's Paradise. The Avalon (orginally Halstead) is the first building on the Pike to conform to the Form Based Code. The project was approved in June 2004 and was open by 2009. It consists of a 257- residential units and approximately 42,350 square feet of ground floor retail. Includes a swimming pool and gym. The County Board adopted the
Form Based Code in 2003.
