Arlington Leads Region in Pop Density

Arlington Leads Region in Pop Density
The 2020 Census reveals that the region’s densest neighborhood is the 5 blocks east of Ballston Metro around Randolph & 9th St with a population density of 96,758 people per square mile. This is not only the highest density census tract in the metro area, but also in Virginia.
● Just east of Quincy another census tract has 72,487 people per square mile.
● Just west of Stafford another census tract has 51,735 people per square mile.
  This high density was achieved by Arlington’s planners encouraging high-rise residential and office buildings along the Orange Line corridor while discouraging single-family homes even a short walk away.  (Very similar to what Plan Lee Hwy proposes for Lyon Village.) GGW Story ARLnow
