Arlington 425 Project

Village Board approval of a revised version of the Arlington 425 development project, a residential and commercial mixed-use development planned for the Downtown, was given at the April 19th Village Board meeting. This proposed development by CCH LLC is for the last vacant parcel in the Downtown bounded by Highland, Campbell and Chestnut. 

Revisions made to by the developer, CCH LLC, to the Arlington 425 include:

  • Eliminating the proposed 7 story Highland residential building above six stories of parking (13 stories) and replacing it with a four or five-story parking garage. 

  • Changing the Campbell Street building from a nine-story building with182 residential units and commercial space on the first and second floor, to a 10-story building with 234 residential units and 7,900 square feet of commercial space on the first floor. 

  • Adding a story to the 54-unit, four-story building facing Chestnut Avenue to a five-story building with 85 residential units. 

These revisions to the Arlington 425 development change the total number of residential units from 361 to 319 and reduce commercial space from 43,800 square feet to 7,500 square feet. Parking for the development will be further reviewed by the Village and developer after first-phase construction of the Campbell building and Highland garage is completed. The review will evaluate whether a fifth level should be added to the garage or if 44 spaces under the Chestnut building is sufficient, or a combination of both.

Arlington 425 fully complies with the village's inclusionary housing ordinance approved last year, which mandates 5% of units, or 16 units for this development, to be priced as affordable rent for qualifying residents. The developer will also contribute fees to a Village housing fund per the ordinance, in lieu of providing another eight affordable units.

This development was approved by the Village Board in May 2019 after extensive review. In August 2020 the developer was granted an extension to zoning approvals on the site until June 2021.
