    Atlantic Realty hoping to revamp Sterling Plaza

    Many of the spaces on the north side of the property are currently vacant. - Times-Mirror/Rick Wasser
    Sterling Plaza I, LLC has filed a pre-submission application with the county to discuss possible renovations to the Sterling Plaza Shopping Center, as well as the addition of 10,500 square feet of residential use, including 30 "stacked multi-family dwelling units along the rear of the property."

    Vienna-based property management company Atlantic Realty was listed as a co-applicant on the submission and the Atlantic Realty address was given as the owner of the property.

    Renovations to the property, which is already zoned for residential and commercial uses, would include an "exterior facelift of existing buildings, parking lot adjustments and enhancements to improve pedestrian connectivity. Also to include enhanced pedestrian crosswalk connection across Sterling Boulevard."

    McCaffery Interests sold the property to Atlantic Realty in November for $26.5 million.

    In 2010, McCaffery Interests renovated the shopping center.

    Chicago, Ill.-based McCaffery Interests "targets investment in and the development or redevelopment of under performing, urban real estate," according to its website.

    In a document, Atlantic Realty wrote, "The renovation to existing shopping center with additional retail and multi-family uses will further the goals of revitalization of older commercial areas in the county."

    Sterling Plaza I and Sterling Plaza II have a total of more than 150,000 square feet of retail space and almost 900 parking spaces.

    The pre-application discussion is slated for April 8.

    Not enough lighting. The only source of light is from the parking lot and inside the stores coming out the windows. And Harbor Freight coming in should actually bring more people to the shopping center. Think of this before that store opened the closest one was in Maryland. So maybe them opening it up will bring more business’.


    Cowbell, isn’t there 28,000 residential units approved most before the current board was seated?


    How about a facelift and some of space get used hopefully by a better class of business. When Harbor Freight is you high class business there you are in bad shape.


    What do you mean by “dark”


    No more residential units. And one of problems i have with that area is that it’s a shady place, way too dark, and the people who just mill around especially around the laundry mat i always feel like im going to be robbed or something.


    To BOS: No more residential units
