What was once a 30 foot deep pit along Anderson Road at the former Commons of McLean property is now the quickly rising Kingston apartments. The completed 319 unit building might only be a couple floors out of the ground thus far, but like its neighbor Haden to the south, now that the Kingston is out of the ground it will start climbing quickly.
Ultimately the building will be 15 stories and include an elevated bridge level connecting both sides of the project which will double as a common space amenity to the building. Once completed, along with the completion of the Haden, expect some improvements to the streetscape along Anderson Road, a stretch of Tysons that has been turned upside down for nearly three years due to varying levels of construction.
The final Anderson Park project which includes the Kingston, will total seven buildings and over 2000 apartment units. No word yet when the street grid link which runs adjacent to both the Haden and Kingston will be built, connecting directly to Colshire Drive. We’ll keep watching the building rise and try to find out more about the neighborhood improvements that will be part of the project as well.
