Conveniently located along Clarendon Blvd and two side streets in Arlington’s Rosslyn neighborhood is one of Washington Metro’s most consistently popular condominium communities. The Wooster and Mercer Lofts was developed by Adbo and designed by Cunningham Quill Architects, with brick buildings exhibiting an industrial chic warehouse vibe. Interior touches include giant factory-style windows, exposed ductwork and repurposed 140 year-old brick accents from the old Children’s Museum in Washington.
New resale opportunities come up sporadically; residents tend to stay long term, for the location, the amenities, and the units themselves. This remains the case currently, with no new listings in April and no active listings from previous months.
The most recent sale was in March. Unit #W103 listed and sold for the full asking price of $875,000, on the exact same day. The two-bedroom, two-bath apartment has 1,188 square feet of living space, with Brazilian cherry floors, 10-foot ceilings, brick highlights, and giant windows. The open chef’s style kitchen includes Wolf, Sub-Zero, and GE Monogram stainless steel appliances, along with white granite counters. A built-in bar features accent lights and a GE Monogram wine cooler.
There was also one closing in February. Unit #M301 is a two-bedroom, two-bath corner residence that was offered at $1,250,000 and closed $10K higher at $1,235,000. With 1,829 square feet of living space, the condo has high ceilings and gorgeous hardwood floors. Wooster & Mercer’s signature interior brick accents contribute to the warm and welcoming appearance. The chef-style kitchen has dark granite counters, maple cabinetry, a Wolf gas range and a Sub-Zero fridge. One garage parking space is included.
There has been no other sales activity at Wooster and Mercer so far in 2022. The highest-priced sale for last year was Unit #M406, an exclusive Life at the Top listings. The stunning two-bedroom, 2.5-bath loft penthouse with 2,370 square feet of living space closed at $1,635,000 in December 2021. Dramatic floating stairs lead to a spectacular loft overlooking the living area below, with bonus features including a wet bar and wine fridge, as well as a large and open den that’s great for working from home. Two garage parking spaces were included in the sale.
Unit #W203 also sold in December. The one-bedroom, one-bath apartment with 900 square feet of space closed at $645,000. Features include oversized windows, Brazilian cherry floors, and an open gourmet kitchen with granite counters and Wolf and Sub-Zero stainless steel appliances. A large glass door and adjacent floor-to-ceiling windows adds to the bedroom’s airy ambience. Custom wall colors, hanging lamps and exposed ductwork are also part of the appeal.
