Queen Streets in Arlington’s Rosslyn neighborhood. Developed by Abdo and designed by Cunningham Quill Architects, the buildings feature a retro warehouse vibe, including interior accents such as exposed ductwork and 150 year old brick accents that originally came from the former Little Sisters of the Poor convent in Washington, DC.
