Rosslyn, the Gateway to Arlington
Rosslyn is bordered by the Potomac River, making it a gateway to the rest of Arlington. During the colonial era, the only way to cross the river—to and from Georgetown—was via ferry. Farmers would bring their wares to Rosslyn and cross the river, either to sell them at market in Georgetown or to ship them to further destinations at Georgetown’s docks.
Rosslyn itself could be dangerous in those days. Highwaymen would await along Lee Highway in the infamous Dead Man’s Hollow in order to relieve returning farmers of their money. Bridges built during the mid-1800s made crossing the Potomac easier, though it didn’t make the journey along the roadways any less treacherous. The community was also the site of Fort Corcoran during the Civil War, built on a rise overlooking the coastline and bridges.
During the late 1800s, Rosslyn increased its reputation as an unsavory place with numerous brothels, saloons and gambling halls. But a morals cleanup campaign after the turn of the century paved the way for increased residential development. This period also coincided with the construction of an electric streetcar line from Rosslyn to Ballston, forming an early basis for a transit friendly corridor that would continue to evolve over the years to come.
During the 1940s and 1950s, Rosslyn was known for industrial sites and development. But the 1960s and 1970s brought a very different trend with the beginning of high-rise construction, both for office use and residential. The building of the modern day Metrorail system was also instrumental in new shifts in the region. Five stations were delivered between 1977 and 1979, in Rosslyn, Courthouse, Clarendon, Virginia Square and Ballston. The new commuter options helped spur an even greater emphasis on condominium development, a trend that has continued to today.
Arlington has recently embarked on another ambitious makeover for Rosslyn, with a greater emphasis on residential growth as well as a walk-friendly environment for shops, dining and recreation. There will be a gradual decrease on the longstanding office environment and more emphasis on luxury condos and townhouses for sale. For now, Turnberry Tower—along with other high-end condominiums such as the Waterview and Atrium—are extremely popular for buyers who wish to be near the river and all the action associated with the gateway community of Rosslyn.
