Question: We would like to purchase a new condo or townhouse and have seen lots of construction around Arlington. Can you tell us which ones are for sale?

Unfortunately, most of the large construction sites in Arlington are for rental apartment buildings. However, here are a few that are being offered for sale.

Ballston Green — This development will bring 28 new townhomes to the western edge of Ballston. These homes are located off of Wilson Blvd., behind the Virginia Tech Research Center. Prices are in the $900’s. Sales have recently resumed and a brand new model is now available.

Pike 3400 Towns — This is the development replacing the former Chrysler/Jeep dealership on Glebe and Columbia Pike. Once complete, this development will include 44 new urban-style townhomes in an area that is quickly growing in popularity. Following the current trend, these homes will forgo basements for a 4th level loft and terrace. Construction seems to be moving forward, but sales are currently on pause. Prices start in the $700’s.

Gaslight Square — These luxury condos are offering a modern flair and unique amenities such as direct elevator access (in other words, the elevator opens into your home). The floor plans are generously sized at 1,000 – 1,900 square feet. They did not skimp on outdoor space either. Units in the second building are now available for move in. Prices range from the $700’s to over $1.3 million.

Ballston Row — Though the name would lead you to believe they are located in Ballston, that is a bit of a stretch. They are actually located at the corner of George Mason and Henderson, just outside of what I would consider to be Ballston. The homes are four stories and include 2-car garages. Prices range from the $700’s to over $1 million.

The Avery — Located on the south side of Arlington Blvd, just outside of Rosslyn. This brand new condo building is complete and ready for move-in. Unfortunately, the prices are up there with what you would expect to find within a block or two of the Metro stations along the Orange Line. Prices range from the $400’s to the $800’s. Unless they make some drastic adjustments, my guess is that the Avery will be converted into another rental building.

Dominion Heights — As I’m writing this they have one remaining unit to sell. It is a beautiful two-bedroom on the top floor. At $660,900 this unit seems to be priced a little high being this far off the Orange Line, but you will have a hard time finding another condo in Arlington with a larger private terrace.

Please feel free to contact me for additional information about any of these communities including my candid opinions about them.
