Past Projects

National Gateway at Potomac Yard

In a joint venture with Bethesda-based Meridian Group, Starr Capital originated and managed the National Gateway investment. In 2004, the venture acquired 15 acres in the Crystal City submarket of Arlington, Virginia that was entitled for 2,850,000 square feet of office, residential, hotel and retail uses. Conceptual plans had been approved for a dynamic urban mixed use community with over 200,000 square feet of street retail.

The project received full site plan approval in 2006, allowing for land to be sold for vertical development.
