The Community of Arlington
For over 30 years, the Arlington government has pursued a development strategy of concentrating much of its new development near transit facilities, encouraging mixed-use, pedestrian, and transit-oriented development. In 2002, Arlington received the EPA’s National Award for Smart Growth Achievement for “Overall Excellence in Smart Growth,” and in 2005, the County implemented an affordable housing ordinance that requires most developers to contribute significant affordable housing resources, either in units or through a cash contribution, in order to obtain the highest allowable amounts of increased building density in new development projects, most of which are planned near Metrorail station areas.
It’s no accident that such forward-thinking and future-planning philosophies align so closely with those of Glickman Design Build – we’re a 2015 Chrysalis National Award for Universal Design winner! When residents of Arlington want to make the most of their precious outdoor space, they turn to the creative professionals of Glickman Design Build, who specialize in sunrooms, patios, decks, and outdoor deck installations in Arlington.
Universal Design with the Future in Mind
A number of the county’s residential neighborhoods and larger garden-style apartment complexes are listed in the National Register of Historic Places and/or designated under the County government’s zoning ordinance as local historic preservation districts. There are very specific design specifications for our area, which is why when residents here need universal design for their aging parents or wounded warriors, they call us: Glickman Design Build.
There was a time when multiple generations lived under one roof, but as people moved to the suburbs and families became more nuclear, this changed. However, the trend is re-emerging as people move their aging parents in with them. Creating an in-law suite, with universal design principles that facilitate mobility is a great way to accommodate multiple generations in a home while allowing the privacy everyone desires.
