Ballston’s Tallest Tower Set to Open Soon

Ballston’s tallest building to-date is nearing completion.

After ten years of planning and construction — including two years on pause — the 22-story mixed-use building at 4040 Wilson Blvd is slated to open in February.

Per developer Shooshan Company, the complex — part of the larger Liberty Center development — will be home to 250 apartment units, 191,000 square feet of office space, a co-working space, a fitness center, showers and bike storage, a rooftop conference center, and ground floor retail.

Other residential amenities include an outdoor rooftop with resort-style hot tub, swimming pools, grills, outdoor fire pits, a reading nook and tenant coffee bar, and a rooftop clubroom with a catering kitchen. The apartments will start on the 11th floor and many will offer views of D.C.

In 2017, AvalonBay Communities, a publicly-traded apartment developer and real estate investment trust, announced it was relocating its headquarters to 4040 Wilson — in a three-floor, 73,00 square-feet space — from nearby 671 N. Glebe Road.

On the ground floor, restaurant The Salt Line will open with a large, 100-seat outdoor patio space featuring a fixed bar. High-end gym VIDA Fitness, which recently promoted itself with free classes in the neighborhood, is also opening its first non-D.C. location in the building.

Apartment pre-leasing is set to begin in January, according to Shooshan.
