Phishing Attack Hits Lyon Park

Recently, Lyon Park residents received emails from someone impersonating the president of their citizens association requesting that they purchase and send gift cards. Everyone should take extreme care if they receive such emails.

Do not respond to such emails quickly (or at all) and check them out.

  • Consider if the request makes sense.
  • Consider if you are someone who would be contacted for this purpose.
  • Check that the sender address matches the ostensible sender.
  • Confirm with the ostensible sender by other means (like by telephone).

Washington Blvd-Kirkwood Rd Building Approved

The Arlington County Board approved a plan to replace the 
aging commercial buildings on the northwest corner of 
Washington Blvd and Kirkwood Rd with a seven-story 
apartment building. The site is home to the former Sport & 
Health Club fitness center, two single-story commercial office
buildings, and the Specialty Services auto service building. All 
those buildings will be demolished. The new
 building will have an entry lobby on Washington Boulevard, a tree-
shaded interior courtyard, and an underground 198-space
parking garage.

Red Top Cab Site Construction

Hudson, N. Irving, and N. 13th Streets.The property is called
 Alexan Clarendon and is a 330-unit apartment complex. The
 developer is Trammell Crow Residential. The contractor is 
John Moriarity. Demolition started in April. Excavation should
start in June. The expected completion date is April 2021.
 Construction hours are weekdays: 7:00am to 6:30pm.
 Weekends and holidays the hours are 10:00am to 6:30pm. The
 June construction work will include pile driving, the loudest part
 of the project.

Bike Thefts

Recently there have been some bicycle thefts in the
 Clarendon area. Protect your bike from theft. U-locks
 are the most effective locks to use. When leaving your 
bike in a public area always secure the bike to a bike
rack or other immovable object even if just for a 
short time. When at home, secure your bike in
 a safe location such as a locked garage or other inside 
location.

Register your bike with the police
