Modern Living at Wooster and Mercer Lofts

Wooster and Mercer | Market Pulse | September 2019

Developed by Abdo and delivered in 2007, the Wooster and Mercer Lofts have enjoyed a sustained popularity. The complex is made up of two main buildings—the Wooster and the Mercer respectively. Designed by Cunningham Quill Architects, the brick structures evoke the feeling of older traditional warehouses, albeit with plenty of modern bells and whistles. Among the intriguing trimmings is the use of repurposed 140 year-old bricks from the original Childrens’ Museum in Washington which are now used as interior accents. The community is located along Clarendon Boulevard in Arlington’s Rosslyn neighborhood, not far from the next-door Courthouse community.

No new public listings came to market in September, nor were any publically listed condos from previous months still available as September came to a close. There has, however, been activity for three residences through the Life At The Top Team and TTR Sotheby’s Private Placement Program.

Two of the privately listed units at Wooster and Mercer Lofts are currently active—a one-bedroom in the Wooster building and a two-bedroom in the Mercer building. To learn more about these spacious residences with their hardwood floors, gourmet kitchens, giant factory-style windows and luxurious bathrooms, call Jeff Wilson at the number below.

The third private Life At The Top listing is now pending after a bidding war that led to a sales agreement above the $1 million asking price. Unit #W208 is a stunning corner residence with two-bedrooms, two-baths and 1,703 square feet of living space. Giant floor-to-ceiling windows wrap around two sides, with exposed overhead ductwork, hardwood floors and 140-year-old brick accents adding to the stylish warehouse vibe. A beautiful Chef’s kitchen is set into a single wall with granite counters, Viking and Sub-Zero stainless steel appliances and hanging pendant lights over the breakfast bar. The large master bedroom suite has a giant 18-pane window and en-suite bath with honed marble double-sink vanity. The second bedroom also has a 18-pane window plus direct access to the hallway full bath.

There was also one closing in September. Unit #M207 in the Mercer building listed for $1,150,000 and sold for $1.2 million. The two-bedroom, two-bath apartment has 1,672 square feet of living space plus hardwood floors, a residential concrete patio and a gourmet kitchen with upscale appliances and dark granite counters. The master bath has a twin sink vanity and frameless shower. Large windows look out on the patio and the community grounds.

Seven closings over the past six months along with no current public listings clearly demonstrates Wooster & Mercer’s elite popularity. With demand this strong, it’s a great time for sellers to enter the market!

Residents at Wooster and Mercer enjoy a plethora of amenities, including a swimming pool, fitness center, front desk and concierge service, a club room and dog park. The location along Clarendon Boulevard allows easy foot access to numerous nearby bars, restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, upscale shopping boutiques and entertainment. There are two Metro stations that are also close by, in Rosslyn and in the Courthouse neighborhoods respectively.
