Arlington Firefighters Move Into New Fire Station 10 in Rosslyn

Construction on the three towers of The Highlands, which started in October 2018, is wrapping up. The fire station appears to have finished earlier than developer Penzance anticipated. A spokeswoman previously told ARLnow the station would be ready in the fall, along with a new apartment tower and condo tower.

Passersby can see a 35-foot tall sculpture of a bronze nozzle with twisting spirals of stainless steel, representing water. At night, light illuminates the stainless spirals. The art installation, a tribute to firefighters, marks the first time public art has adorned a fire station.

Baltimore artists David and Eli Hess were commissioned for the art, which was funded by Penzance as a part of the development process.

Fire Station 10 is part of the 2015 Western Rosslyn Area Planning Study, which created a plan for developing the neighborhood. Other parts of the study included The Heights school building, the new Rosslyn Highlands Park and the recently completed Queens Court Residences affordable housing development (1801 N. Quinn Street), which features a new playground on-site.

While Aubrey and Pierce are currently open, Evo is expected to be ready for move-ins next month. One-bedrooms at Pierce are on the market in the $900,00 range, while one-bedrooms at Aubrey and Evo start around $2,300 a month.

Aubrey has many of the amenities one would expect at a luxury apartment—a rooftop pool, an exhibition kitchen, a coworking area, a high-end gym—and Pierce has a two-story fitness center. But Evo’s amenities are especially bougie. Think a 65-foot-long rooftop pool […]
