Though the only trolleys rolling down its streets these days are filled with sightseers, Arlington, VA remains the quintessence of the streetcar suburb. Separated from the District of Columbia by a stretch of the Potomac River, it has so much to offer. For those working in DC, Arlington is incredibly convenient to its concentrated areas of government and business. The Blue, Yellow, Orange, and Silver Metro lines, along with five bridges, connect Arlingtonians to The District. In short order however, Arlington residents may have even less reason to commute. The opening of Amazon’s HQ2 in Crystal City will require a workforce of some 25,000.
With all of that in mind, now is absolutely the time to buy a home in Arlington, VA. Situated in the heart of the Court House neighborhood, the 2000 Clarendon Condominium is presenting the perfect opportunity. Just two blocks from Court House Metro Station, this modern building for luxury living defines convenience. In addition to retail options aplenty and great eats such as Bayou Bakery and Tupelo Honey, 2000 Clarendon is encircled by supermarkets including Whole Foods Market, Safeway, Mom’s Organic Market, and Trader Joe’s--each of which is a 10- to 15-minute walk away.
The condominium at 2000 Clarendon Boulevard has a number of impressive features and amenities. There are 87 units comprised of 18 separate floor plans. These 1- and 2-bedroom condos, ranging from 627-1,739 square feet, include:
Above & Below | Ceilings starting at 10 feet high and living areas with wide-board hardwood floors Cook & Eat | Chef’s kitchens with stainless steel appliances and fully functional islands Wash & Groom | Spa-inspired baths with porcelain tile and quartz countertops Share & Gather | Rooftop sundeck with cascading pool, modern fitness center, Sky Lounge for entertaining, and to-die-for views of DC Monuments
Completion of 2000 Clarendon is expected for 2020. In the meantime, there are other nearby condos worth checking out as well, including Park at Courthouse, Station Square, Clarendon 1021, and Clarendon 3131. There are major changes underway in Arlington and those who get in now will surely reap the benefits thereof.
