Courthouse

As the name suggests, Courthouse is home to Arlington’s courts, but that’s just the beginning as it is also the seat of the County government. At its center is the popular Courthouse Plaza, where you’ll find employees or residents enjoying an outdoor meeting or quick cup of coffee on a nice day. The neighborhood offers retailers much more beyond the civic institutions, as it’s one of the most densely populated areas in Arlington with more than 20,000 residents and a daytime population exceeding 30,000 thanks to numerous tech companies and contractors. The neighborhood's consistent daytime and evening customer base provides the opportunity to expand the retail sales window and capture a share of the median household income that exceeds $100,000.

Complementing the existing customer base, Courthouse added a 168-key Hyatt House in late 2016 and a 150,000 SF office building in mid-2018, while another 500 housing units are under construction. Taking a second look at Courthouse quickly confirms there's more than immediately meets the eye.
