BREAKING: Update on Virginia Hospital/Edison Complex Property Development
As previously reported, the Virginia Hospital Center has reached an agreement with Arlington County to purchase the property commonly referred to as the Edison Complex. This land, located between George Mason Drive, Edison Street, and adjacent to 19th Street, was previously used for County purposes. With the exception of one building (which will be vacated in 2018), the County is no longer using this space.
VHC has made a commitment to work with the neighborhood associations involved to identify concerns early in the process and held meetings in early March to begin that discussion. One area that many will probably all agree on is increased measures to decrease hospital-bound parking in the neighborhoods.
As the meetings were held post-press deadlines, the results will be reported on highviewpark.com and at the March 30 Association meeting.
