ARLINGTON, V.A. – Balfour Beatty announces the topping out of two residential towers for JBG SMITH’s 2000 and 2001 South Bell Street project in Arlington, Virginia. The milestone represents ongoing progress on the development project which supports the transformation of the National Landing area and provides additional residential options in the growing community.

To top out the east and west towers, Balfour Beatty teammates poured a total of 44,074 yards of concrete and set a total of 2,949 tons of steel rebar.

“Congratulations to the team for accomplishing this major achievement,” said Dan Novack, Balfour Beatty president in the Mid-Atlantic. “We look forward to continued progress and ongoing collaboration with our owner, industry partners and the local community in providing a premier living development for future residents in the evolving National Landing area.”

Once complete, the multifamily complex will accommodate 775 units offering a variety of floorplan options for different living situations. The 25-story, 2000 South Bell tower features a custom glass curtainwall façade and 355 apartment units, and the adjacent 19-story, 2001 South Bell tower features a precast and brick façade with 420 units.

Both towers will include amenities with rooftop decks and pools set over a two-story garage podium. In addition to the construction of the residential buildings, an extension of South Bell Street will be delivered between the two towers to provide a roadway for public transportation.

Construction on the 2000 & 2001 South Bell Street residential towers is ongoing with a scheduled delivery of Spring 2025.
