Wooster and Mercer | Market Pulse | October 2019

Located in Arlington’s Rosslyn neighborhood, the Wooster and Mercer Lofts have enjoyed a sustained popularity ever since their completion in 2007. Designed by Cunningham Quill Architects, the complex evokes a combination of modern and throw-back aesthetics, with a brick exterior and industrial chic interiors. Among the signature elements are soaring ceilings and 140 year-old brick accents, salvaged from the original Children’s Museum in Washington. The demand for condos here has resulted in a shortfall—there were no new public listings in the month of October.

Despite the lack of advertised listings, the Life At The Top Team and TTR Sotheby’s Private Placement Program have been working with two currently available off-the-grid properties. A 2-bedroom residence in the Mercer building, along with a 1-bedroom in the Wooster building feature hardwood floors, gourmet kitchens, luxurious baths and oversized factory style windows. To learn more about these private listings, contact Jeff Wilson and his LATT team.

Also worth noting, a third Life At The Top private listing at Wooster and Mercer is currently under contract. Unit #W208 is a corner residence with 2-bedrooms, 2-baths and 1,703 square feet of living space. The unit is expected to close in January, after a bidding war led to an agreement in excess of the $1 million asking price. Giant wraparound windows, exposed ductwork, gorgeous hardwood floors and a large master bedroom suite with honed marble bathroom contribute to the allure. Also notable is the beautiful Chef’s kitchen set into a single wall with granite counters, Viking and Sub-Zero stainless steel appliances, and hanging pendant lights over the breakfast bar.

The most recent closing was in September. Unit #M207 is a 2-bedroom, 2-bath apartment with 1,672 square feet of living space, plus a wraparound private patio. The spacious residence listed for $1,150,000 and sold for $1,200,000–$50,000 over asking. Features include hardwood floors, a gourmet kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances and a large master bedroom suite.

The highest-priced sale at Wooster and Mercer this year was Unit #M408 with 3-bedrooms, 3-full baths and an expansive two-level floor plan with 2,565 square feet of living space. The mezzanine loft sports two-story factory style windows, a Chef’s kitchen with honed granite counters and Maple cabinets, oversized bedrooms and floating spiral stairs leading up to the loft level. Originally priced at $1,450,000, the loft closed at $1,480,000, or $30,000 over list.

Amenities at the Wooster and Mercer Lofts include a swimming pool, fitness center, staffed front desk and concierge service, a club room, secure parking, a courtyard and a dog park. The location along Clarendon Boulevard is ideal for shopping, dining and entertainment. The Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor consists of five trendy urban villages, each with its own dedicated Metrorail station. There are two Metro stations within walking distance of Wooster & Mercer, in Rosslyn and in Courthouse.
