1213 Wilson Blvd
Arlington, VA 22209
This temporary space was created at the Central Place construction site at the corner of Wilson Boulevard and N. Moore Street, the former location of Tom Sarris' Orleans House Restaurant. It will eventually become the site of the new Central Place observation tower, but until The JBG Companies is ready to break ground, they don’t want to let this sun-filled space go to waste.
A plaza was created on the old parking lot, with casual seating for pedestrians, along with a rain garden on the site of the restaurant's footprint, bringing both environmental and aesthetic benefits to the neighborhood.
