Meridian at Ballston Commons

Meridian at Ballston Commons is not just a renovation; it’s a revitalization. Hartman Design Group was entrusted with transforming this well-established 21-story, 438-unit apartment complex in Arlington, VA, originally built in 1999. The repositioning project aimed to elevate the property’s amenities, modernize its aesthetic, and enhance the overall living experience for its residents.
Meridian at Ballston Commons holds a special place in the hearts of many residents. The building’s larger-than-average unit sizes (averaging 1,100 square feet) initially attracted families and established professionals seeking spacious living in the vibrant Ballston Commons neighborhood.

HDG’s design approach for the renovation acknowledged the building’s history and its established resident base. While modernizing the common areas and leasing office, the project retained a sense of sophistication that caters to a discerning clientele.

The heart of the renovation focused on creating a dynamic amenity experience for residents, an amenity oasis. The spaces transformed into a collection of inviting social hubs. This includes a stylish club room, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a resort-style pool deck with landscaped terraces. These amenities cater to a variety of lifestyles, fostering a sense of community and connection among residents.

Centered around a theme of wellness, the design draws inspiration from the surrounding Ballston Quarter. Natural materials, textures, and colors create a sense of tranquility and provide a space to unwind from daily life. The overall aesthetic is casual, but sophisticated and timeless, reflecting the established character of the residents and the building’s history.

Reborn through thoughtful renovation, Meridian at Ballston Commons now offers residents a comfortable living experience with unparalleled amenities and a strong sense of community. HDG’s design expertise has ensured the property will continue to be a thriving hub for established residents and newcomers seeking a sophisticated haven in the vibrant Ballston neighborhood.

Whether you are considering developing a new multifamily project or repositioning an existing one, Hartman Design Group has the experience and expertise to help. Find out how we can help by contacting us today.

One University
Fairfax, VA

There’s a new affordable housing and senior independent living development coming to life in Fairfax, Virginia in 2024 and Hartman Design Group is thrilled to be designing the multifamily interiors within!

Situated across from George Mason University, One University is the redevelopment of Robinson Square, an aging public housing community owned by Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA). It was demolished and is new construction on the site.

The new development will include 120 market rate multifamily apartments, 120 senior independent living apartments, and 333 student housing units, as well as a community meeting space for the FCRHA incorporated into the multifamily apartment building.

Both the senior and family portions are projected to be completed by summer of 2024.

HDG designed amenity spaces will include market-rate level designed spaces including lobbies, club room, leasing office, mail room, dog wash, laundry, outdoor spaces and more.

Skymark (Reston Gateway)
Reston, VA

Hartman Design Group is delighted to be the interior designer on Skymark, a new construction multifamily high-rise tower in Reston, Virginia.

Rising 39 stories and enjoying a vista that includes the scenic Northern Virginia mountains and the National Cathedral, the majestic Skymark is the inaugural building in the next phase of Reston Town Center, home to world-class corporations, thriving retail, and exciting dining and entertainment options alike. It is hard to overstate this apartment tower’s convenient location: next to the new Reston Town Center Silver Line metro station for an easy commute to Dulles Airport and Washington, D.C.; adjacent to the Washington and Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park and bicycle trail; within walking distance of the vibrant hive of activity that is Reston Town Center.

HDG wanted to create a place where the line between outdoors and indoors blurs with biophilic elements in abundance. We also wanted to design for the sweet spot where work and home lives blend effortlessly and employed an array of tucked-away co-working and social spots with cozy booths, private conference and tea rooms, and conversation nooks.

Dual lobbies suggest the East and West Tower’s nuanced differences. HDG struck an authentic, artisanal, and timeless mood with its textures and finishes for the smaller East Tower lobby that includes a communal table, seating nook, hospitality lounge and mail room. The larger West Tower lobby, with its Uber Lounge, concierge area, mail room, reception lounge, and tearoom, strikes a serene and refined note of intended simplicity with natural elements and colors enhanced by blue steel. Think elegant, tactile, dialed-in, thoughtful, classic, comfortable, and approachable.
The expansive 5th floor amenity suite bridges both towers as it metaphorically spans residents’ passions and pursuits too. In addition to ample co-working areas, it offers everything from a sleek fitness center to a cozy fireplace lounge, all with views & connections to our spectacular outdoor terrace. There, you’ll find a resort-style pool and deck offering plenty of extras. Fourth-floor pet spa and bicycle maintenance/storage areas tick other boxes to complete the picture and tenants’ lives.

When it is complete, you will want to reclaim your free time and recenter at Skymark.
