Makers Rise residences slated for 2023 finish near Innovation Metro

A 356-unit, seven-story apartment building is taking shape near the Innovation Metro station. 

Makers Rise, which is on just under 4 acres of land at the intersection of Dulles Station Blvd and North Side Street and South Side Street, is set for completion in July 2023.

With the expected launch of phase two of the Silver Line this fall, the development team, which includes real estate company Crimson Partners, is hoping to implement new signage and way-finding tools in the area.

Originally, the developers didn’t anticipate including the residential development in any comprehensive signage overhaul. But they now say the current, nearly 20-year-old signage is not appropriate “for the use, scale and quality of the mixed-use building,” according to application materials submitted on Aug. 9.

The Property contains multiple street frontages yet is located along a neighborhood-scaled street that carries limited vehicular traffic, and as such demands high quality and high visibility signage, which is proposed in this package,” the application states. “The anticipated opening of the Innovation Metro Station heightens this need as new potential residents, retail patrons, and visitors begin to utilize this transit-oriented development.”

The building also includes 5,600 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space.

Makers Rise (2311 Dulles Station Blvd) is one of the first buildings that will be constructed as transit-oriented development near Innovation Center Metro station.

The sign proposal includes changes related to the building, retail, parking and loading. 

The building is expected to be ready for occupancy in 2023. As a result, temporary leasing banners are planned to attract prospective tenants, customers and residents. Artwork is planned along South Side Street near a public gathering space.

Once completed, the building will include a range of housing, from studios to two-bedrooms with dens. Co-working spaces, courtyards, a swimming pool, fitness center, pet spa, and club room are also planned, according to Arlington-based CBG Building Co.
