Gates of Ballston

Harkins renovated 464 one- and two-bedroom apartments in this garden apartment community built in the 1930s, and built two-story wood frame additions at selected units. Work included select sitework and demolition along with all new finishes, plumbing, electric, and the addition of new HVAC systems.

Also included in our scope was a new 19-unit four-story brick, block, steel, and concrete residential condominium. The units are two-bedroom, two-bath, with kitchen, dining, and living areas, each with a private balcony. The exterior is highlighted with precast decorative features and face brick to blend with the historic surroundings.
