Developed by Adbo and designed by Cunningham | Quill Architects, Wooster and Mercer Lofts is a highly desirable condominium community located in Arlington’s Rosslyn neighborhood. The Wooster building offers 52 units while The Mercer is home to 35.

The warehouse-style accents are on full display with exposed ductwork in the living areas and bedrooms, wide-plank flooring with a rustic tone, and brick accents. A huge Great Room area includes living, dining, and cooking space with giant factory windows. The open gourmet kitchen is set against a single wall, with an extended island, granite counters, glass-front cabinetry, and Wolfe and Sub-Zero stainless steel appliances.
