(Updated at 4:30 p.m.) It’s now possible to live in Rosslyn’s long-awaited Central Place development.
JBG announced today the opening of the residential portion of its Central Place project in Rosslyn, which is one of the tallest apartment buildings in the region. Prospective tenants can now rent studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments, and tours will be available starting next week.
The 31-story mixed-use building, which is located on N. Lynn Street across from the Rosslyn Metro station, features 377 apartments with access to amenities such as a swimming pool, private cabanas and grilling areas, an outdoor fire pit and lounge, a fitness center and massage rooms. The building also has billiard tables, a library, a dog washing station and direct access to the Metro.
“The magnificent residences feature open floor plans with epicurean kitchens, fine cabinetry and expansive windows that welcome abundant light and spectacular views,” a press release for Central Place reads. “Built for entertaining, relaxation and comfort, the residences at Central Place set a new standard for sophisticated living.”
Restaurants coming to the ground floor of the apartment building include Sweetgreen, The Little Beet and Nando’s Peri-Peri. Those eateries have not yet announced their opening dates.
The residential tower is just one half of the Central Place development. Construction crews are also busy putting the finishing touches on the CEB Tower, a 350,000 square foot office building that is slated to open next to Central Place Residences early next year. The building’s main tenant and namesake is CEB, a publicly-traded company that’s currently based out of a building down the street.
When it opens, the new office building will include a public observation deck once hyped as a possible “game-changer” for Rosslyn. Cava Grill and Compass Coffee also have both signed leases to open in the office tower. It’s not clear whether those businesses will open at the same time as the office building or at a later date.
Workers first broke ground on the massive construction project a little over two years ago.
“The development of Central Place is one of Rosslyn’s most important milestones since the Metro came to town. It’s an embodiment of our community’s transformation from a commercial district into an active, mixed-use center,” said Rosslyn BID President Mary-Claire Burick in a statement. “The observation deck and public plaza, key components of the Central Place development, are set to immediately become important community gathering places and iconic features in our neighborhood.”

Nearly two years after its groundbreaking, JBG is set to redefine the skyline and lifestyle of Rosslyn with the much-anticipated opening of the residences at Central Place. The 31-story mixed-use development, located in the heart of Rosslyn, is the most visually exciting development to come to the Washington, DC area.
The magnificent residences feature open floor plans with epicurean kitchens, fine cabinetry and expansive windows that welcome abundant light and spectacular views. Built for entertaining, relaxation and comfort, the residences at Central Place set a new standard for sophisticated living. The residential tower, which is a JBG joint venture with the State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio, offers 377 impeccably appointed living spaces designed by internationally renowned, Toronto based firm Cecconi Simone. During the opening month of the residential tower, new residents will receive a special offer of up to a half month free rent.
Central Place is a 1 million-square-foot development featuring dramatic glass facades on the residential tower and companion class-A office building, a 17,000-square foot public plaza and an observation deck offering incredible, unobstructed views of the National Mall. Large enough to host public events, the plaza will offer outdoor seating, a splash fountain and mix of street level retail and fast-casual dining offerings including Cava Grill, Compass Coffee, Nando’s Peri Peri, sweetgreen, and the first Northern Virginia location for The Little Beet. The plaza will also provide a pedestrian connection between North Lynn and North Moore Streets, and is anchored by three high-speed elevators that provide direct access to the Rosslyn Metro station.
“Central Place is an exceptional development not only for the innovative design and amenities, but for its transformative nature of the Rosslyn community,” said Andrew Van Horn, a JBG Principal. “As the one of the tallest mixed-use project in the Washington, DC area, Central Place will truly elevate the neighborhood and create a sense of community and place to an area that has not experienced anything like this before.”
“The development of Central Place is one of Rosslyn’s most important milestones since the Metro came to town. It’s an embodiment of our community’s transformation from a commercial district into an active, mixed-use center,” said Mary-Claire Burick, President of the Rosslyn BID. “The observation deck and public plaza, key components of the Central Place development, are set to immediately become important community gathering places and iconic features in our neighborhood.”
Beyer Blinder and Belle Architects and Planners, known for the revitalization of Rockefeller Center in New York City, was tapped by JBG to design Central Place. Their forward-thinking design not only dramatically transforms Rosslyn, but also creates a strong sense of neighborhood that did not exist previously.
