Best of Arlington: On the Market

New condos and apartments—some with great views.


Arlington has three distinct areas: the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor, the Crystal City/Pentagon City area, and South Arlington, which includes Shirlington. All three are walkable areas with good access to public transportation.

New condos in Arlington cost on average about $480 a square foot—up slightly from last year. Arlington is the only part of the Washington market to see an increase, according to William Rich, who tracks condo sales at the real-estate firm Delta Associates.

Here are some of Arlington’s new condo and townhouse developments:
