The PenPlace project features three 22-story buildings totaling approximately 2,800,000 SF of office space; a 15-story amenity building totaling approximately 400,000 SF of amenity space; 100,000+ SF of retail, including three 1- to 2-story retail pavilions; 23,500 SF dedicated as a permanent home for Arlington Community High School serving approximately 300 students; and 2.75 acres of new public open space.

The amenity building is an iconic 355-foot tall spiral-shaped building referred to as the Helix, offering a variety of alternative work environments amidst over 1,000 plant species and will feature two walkable paths of landscaped terrain that will spiral up the outside of the building. The Helix will also feature a meeting center, including a 15,000-seat auditorium.

The 100,000+ SF of retail will prioritize a diverse mix of high-quality, local operators to provide restaurants, cafes, and neighborhood services, including a daycare. The retail pavilions will provide a unique experience offering opportunities for rooftop dining.
