There is little doubt that the Wooster and Mercer Lofts are one of Arlington’s most popular condominium communities. Developed by Abdo and designed by Cunningham Quill Architects, the handsome brick complex with its retro industrial vibe stretches for two blocks along trendy Clarendon Boulevard, and down the side streets of N. Pierce and N. Queen in Rosslyn, right next-door to the Courthouse neighborhood. Among the many architectural touches are repurposed 140 year-old bricks from the old Children’s Museum in DC, now used as interior accents. The appeal of the condos also has an effect on availability, as new listings can be few and far between.
Inventory continued to stall in June with no new listings coming to market. There were no active availabilities during the month.
There was one closing in June. Unit #204 came to market in May and received a full-price accepted offer of $877,000 after just four days on MLS. The sale was completed on June 10. This lovely residence is in the Wooster complex, and has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,270 square feet of living space. Hardwood floors run throughout the apartment, with massive factory-style windows and a chef’s style kitchen with Sub-Zero and Wolfe stainless steel appliances. The limestone bathrooms feature Waterworks fixtures.
There was also one closing in May. Unit #M604 in the Mercer complex sold for $850,000. The 1,194 square foot loft residence initially had one bedroom, but the owner later constructed a second. Gleaming hardwood floors run throughout the unit, with floating iron spiral stairs leading to a large private deck. Soaring 22-foot ceilings and two stories of massive windows add to the allure. The open gourmet kitchen features a Wolfe 6-burner range, a stainless steel glass door fridge and built-in double wine coolers.
The only other closing this year has been Unit #208. The private Life At The Top listing was offered at $1 million and closed at $1,007,500. The handsome corner apartment has two bedrooms, two baths and 1,703 square feet of living space. Among the many features is a Chef’s kitchen set into a single wall, with Viking and Sub-Zero appliances, black granite counters and hanging pendant lights. The large master bedroom suite has a honed marble bathroom with twin sink vanity. The second bedroom has direct access to the full hallway bath with marble vanity and tile floor. Parking is included.
The Wooster and Mercer Lofts community is ideally positioned along the trendy Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor with its five popular urban villages: Rosslyn, Courthouse, Clarendon, Virginia Square and Ballston. Each neighborhood has its own Metrorail station. Residents at the Wooster Mercer are able to stroll to a wealth of area attractions. They also enjoy condominium amenities such as a swimming pool, front desks and concierge, club room, fitness center, courtyards and a dog park.
