Enjoying a prime waterfront location in Arlington’s storied Rosslyn neighborhood is the aptly named Waterview. This mixed-use complex merges condominiums residences, an office tower and Le Meridien Hotel into one highly attractive package. Residents enjoy a number of full service amenities including room service meals delivered from the hotel’s popular restaurant, Amuse. The allure of the Waterview does have one drawback, however, as condo availabilities can be scarce.
There was only one new listing in February at the Waterview. Unit #1603 is a two bedroom, two-bath apartment with 1,077 square feet of living space and a slice of Potomac River and monument views from the giant living room windows. A large main area features blonde hardwood floors and a completely open gourmet kitchen set into one wall, with a Viking gas range, Sub-Zero fridge and Dacor microwave.
