Clark delivered 1.1 million square feet of The Boro, a 16-acre mixed-use development in Northern Virginia. The Clark-delivered portion of The Boro consists of three residential buildings, a five-story office building and a vibrant mix of retail and entertainment spaces.

Three residential buildings - Rise, Bolden, and Verse - range in size from 13 to 32 stories. The 32-story Rise has more than 400 apartments, with strong architectural spaces balanced by complex, neutral finishes that have an intimate, tactile quality. Overlooking Boro Park, Bolden offers 133 apartment residences that combine sumptuous interiors with a myriad of social spaces. Both Rise and Bolden sit atop one of the largest Whole Foods Markets in the country, and feature fitness centers, yoga studios, club rooms with entertainment kitchens, and pools with lounging areas. Verse, the third residential component, is a 25-story condominium building containing 140 luxury units and amenity-rich features such as a high-performance fitness studio, pet spa, and entertainment kitchen. Verse is designed to inspire community and connection through the pedestrian-friendly streets, green public spaces to lounge and play, everyday conveniences, and high-end shopping.

Rise, Bolden, and Verse residential towers are all connected on the 9th level by a "SkyPark", a shared outdoor amenity space featuring a complex design of changing hardscapes.  Home to a theater, bar area, grilling stations, bocce court, fire pits, and lounges, the space is integral to the neighborhood feel of the development.

As part of this phase of The Boro, Clark also delivered Loft, a five-story office building that features 75,000-square feet of leasable office space atop two-stories of retail. The three-story loft-style office space features 14-foot ceilings, distinct column drops, open stairs, operable windows, and underground parking.
