Rosslyn, Arlington’s Gateway Community
Rosslyn is rich in history yet still evolving. In fact, the waterfront neighborhood bears little semblance to the early colonial ferry landing that once served to bring farmers and their goods across the Potomac to Georgetown. Indeed, Rosslyn is now a place dominated by high-rise luxury condos, apartments and office buildings. It is also considered the gateway to Arlington and the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor—a Metrorail-connected stretch of five trendy urban villages.
The five urban hotspots are Rosslyn, Courthouse, Clarendon, Virginia Square and Ballston. Each has its own dedicated Metro station with Blue, Orange and Silver Line service. But the gateway designation existed long before Washington’s modern Metro system. In fact, Rosslyn has been known as Arlington’s gateway since 1843, when the Aqueduct Bridge was built. The double bridge consisted of both a roadway and canal bridge, but was demolished after the completion of the Key Bridge.
Rosslyn was home to Fort Corcoran during the Civil War, and became known as wild and wooly place later in the century—notorious for its brothels and gambling halls. The early 1900s brought a massive clean-up campaign as city planners and officials sought to promote more residential development. But Rosslyn’s timeline over the ensuing century would remain fluid with periods of industrial development, early electric rail service, apartment developments during the 1930s, and a surge of high rise commercial office development in the 1960s and 1970s.
Today, Rosslyn finds itself in yet another major redevelopment phase with an emphasis on new luxury condos and townhouses as well as a walk-friendly live, work and play environment. In addition to The Atrium, you’ll find upscale condominiums like Turnberry Tower, the Waterview, Key & Nash and the Wooster and Mercer Lofts. There’s plenty of local shops and restaurants, and even more as you head into Courthouse, Clarendon and beyond. Gateway Park with its jazz concerts and events is also a big attraction.
Getting Around Rosslyn
Rosslyn has always been a transportation hub, from the earliest ferries to the building of bridges, and from long ago streetcars to the modern Metrorail system. Residents at The Atrium can stroll to the Rosslyn Metro and take the Blue, Orange and Silver Lines to just about anywhere in the greater Washington area.
There is also the advantage of the nearby Key Bridge leading across the Potomac River to Georgetown. For those wanting to stick closer to home, the parallel Clarendon and Wilson Boulevards lead straight to next-door communities like Courthouse and Clarendon. Drivers can also head north or south along George Washington Memorial Parkway, while those who love to hike and bicycle can enjoy the scenic Mount Vernon Trail.
