Wooster and Mercer Lofts For Sale | Arlington

Located at 1600 Clarendon Blvd and 1615 Queen Street N, Arlington, VA 22209

Wooster & Mercer Lofts is inarguably one of Washington Metro’s top condominiums. Perfectly situated between Rosslyn and Courthouse, the complex is more akin to DC’s schoolhouse loft restorations than Arlington’s typical urban towers. It is no wonder, that this Abdo development has received such glowing reviews in the New York Times and Washingtonian Magazine.

Completed in 2007, Wooster & Mercers combines modernity with wonderful retro interior touches, like 140-year-old bricks from the now shuttered Capital Children’s Museum in DC. Located at 1600 Clarendon Blvd, the large structure has just 83 units, all of which are lofts. As you might guess, these spacious residences don’t come to market often. And when they do, they are on the pricy end with studios starting around $500,000 and 3000 square-foot penthouses selling for well over two million dollars.

Living Along the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor

The Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor is comprised of five urban villages, each with its own dedicated Metrorail station. The corridor also includes parts of neighborhoods to the north and to the south of the parallel Wilson and Clarendon Boulevards. The five Metro stations are in Rosslyn, Court House, Clarendon, Virginia Square and Ballston.

Rosslyn has long been considered the Gateway to Arlington. There was a time, more than a century ago, however, when it was known as the Gateway to Perdition! That was due to the many gambling halls and brothels in the waterfront neighborhood from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s, at which point there was a cleanup campaign.

The corridor was linked by electric streetcars from the 1890s until 1941. The next great transit movement occurred during the late 1970s when the Metrorail stations were built. Currently, there is Red, Orange and Silver Lines in Rosslyn, and Orange and Silver Lines in the other four villages. The Silver Line is the newest route, extending all the way to Largo Town center in Maryland.

This mass transit convenience complements existing roadways as well as bridges that extend lead across the Potomac to Washington, DC. But the corridor is also highly walkable, and increasingly used by bicyclists and those who zip around on the omnipresent electric scooters—just swipe and ride!

Beyond transit options, the corridor is also a supremely fun place to shop, dine or just hang out. For such an urbanized community, there’s a surprising amount of nearby greenspace. Residents at the Wooster and Mercer Lofts have smallish nearby parks like the one-acre Hillside Park just a block away. Or the intriguingly named Dark Star Park in Rosslyn, which was Arlington’s first commissioned art project with large cement spheres representing fallen stars. A bit further east is the Potomac River with its Mount Vernon Trail greenbelt, a wonderful place to walk or bicycle.
