The Elms at Arcola is a 248-unit, garden style apartment community with clubhouse and pool in close proximity to Dulles International Airport in Sterling, Virginia. The three- and four-story walk-up buildings feature breezeways and elevators across a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom market rate apartments with available lofts. All building structures are wood framed with prefabricated wood trusses over slab-on-grade with the exception of the clubhouse, which is partially below grade with elevated concrete foundation walls. The building exteriors are a mix of masonry façades with synthetic wood trim and vinyl siding. Roof coverings consist of 30-year dimensional shingles with standing seam metal roofing over the building entries and clubhouse cupola. Located off Route 50, the property is a four-minute drive from Stone Ridge Village Center, which features a Harris Teeter, Walgreens, and several local restaurants.
Designed and constructed to meet the new 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), The Elms at Arcola utilizes efficiency in envelope design and mechanical and lighting systems alongside sustainable materials and building techniques. Additionally, the community is walkable, with sidewalk connections between all apartment buildings and project amenities.
