Living Along the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor
Gaslight Square is located in Rosslyn, a waterfront community that has long been known as the Gateway to Arlington. It’s the first of a string of urban villages that comprise the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor, linked by Metro stations offering Orange and Silver Line service. The five communities are Rosslyn, Courthouse, Clarendon, Virginia Square and Ballston.
But while residents of Gaslight Square reside in Rosslyn, they are also not far from Courthouse. This allows even more convenience and walkability with numerous shops and restaurants within easy strolling distance. Want to pick up a wood-fired pizza pie? Il Radicchio is a block west. Feel like stepping out for a nearby drink? Barley Mac is a block north!
Rosslyn itself is a community that has continued to evolve over time, in some very dramatic ways. The waterfront village dates back to the colonial era when farmers would use the ferry to cross the Potomac River to Georgetown, where their goods could be either sold at market or shipped to far-flung destinations. During the Civil War it was home to Fort Corcoran and by the late 1800s it had become known for brothels and gambling halls.
The early 20th century brought a morals campaign and cleanup effort, and the 1930s introduced garden apartment developments that would house New Deal federal workers. The 1960s and 1970s brought even more wholesale change, with extensive redevelopment in the form of office high-rise buildings. These days, yet more changes are afoot as city planners endeavor to transform the business environment into more of a residential vibe, albeit one predicated on luxury living with plenty of local amenities.
The Rosslyn of tomorrow will be different from past versions, with more walkable streets and paths, more restaurants, new parks, less office space and more residences. Similarly, other communities along the super trendy Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor will continue their own transitions. But one thing is sure—this is the center of urban desirability in Arlington while still maintaining enduring connections to the past.
Transit Options in Rosslyn
There’s all kinds of convenient ways to get around Rosslyn and the surrounding Arlington area. It starts with the two nearby Metro stations in Rosslyn and Courthouse. Residents of Gaslight Square can also drive right out of their secure parking garage and head in a multitude of directions. For instance, heading east on Wilson Boulevard will quickly lead to the Curtis Memorial Parkway (I-66) and George Washington Memorial Parkway (the latter running north/south along the Potomac River).
The Key Bridge leads across the river to Georgetown while the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge will take you right into the heart of Downtown DC and the institutions of federal government. Of course, if you just want to stay local, either walking or riding a bike will get you plenty of places. It’s all part of living in Rosslyn.
