The Spectrum is a 600,000-square-foot mixed-use development capitalizing on the unique, compact footprint of downtown Falls Church, Virginia. The project contains two levels of below-grade parking (620 spaces), 189 condominium units, 30,000 square feet of ground-level retail space, and 30,000 square feet of office space, designed in the form of four-story townhouses to aesthetically fit into the tight urban area.

Designed to appear as if it was built over time, each section of the building evokes a distinct feel, incorporating multiple facade elements, such as glass curtain wall, brick, metal paneling, cast stone, and architectural precast. The project contains sustainable elements such as a green roof of sedum grass. At seven stories, it is the tallest building in Falls Church. The project was completed in 2008.
