Wooster and Mercer | Market Pulse | September 2020

Developed by Abdo and designed by Cunningham Quill Architects, the Wooster and Mercer Lofts are one of the most popular condo communities in the DC Metro area. Located in Arlington’s Rosslyn neighborhood, the complex features brownstone factory-style facades, and incorporates industrial-chic interiors with exposed ductwork, soaring ceilings and 140 year-old brick accents from the old Children’s Museum in Washington. You won’t find a lot of availabilities here. In fact, there is only one active condo for sale as of this writing.

The one residence available for sale at the Wooster and Mercer in September is Unit #W107. The exclusive Life At The Top listing has also been reduced in price, from $750,000 down to $700,000. The 1,123 square foot floorplan is unusually large for a one-bedroom, one-bath apartment. The result is huge open spaces and high ceilings. Giant 12-pane windows in the living area allow floods of sunshine to bathe the hardwood floors in a warm glow. Exposed overhead ductwork and reclaimed brick accents add to the appeal. A sublime open kitchen features granite counters and island, a mosaic backsplash, and Viking and Sub-Zero appliances. Glass doors lead to an attractive bedroom with walk-in closet. The en-suite bath has a honed marble vanity and designer fixtures. One parking space plus storage is included.

Coming soon, Unit #411 is slated to list in October for $879,000. The one-bedroom, one-bath residence has 1,060 square feet of living space. A bonus loft area leads out to a private, 150 square foot terrace. There are 20-foot ceilings with giant two-story windows on the south side, as well as a chef’s kitchen with a Wolf range, energy efficient appliances and a custom built-in refrigerator.

There were no closings or new sales contracts in September. The most recent sales were in August, beginning with Unit #W406. The one-bedroom penthouse with a den and two full baths sold at the full asking price of $1,195,000. Soaring 21-foot ceilings are complemented by Brazilian Cherry floors. A gorgeous open kitchen in the main living area has floor-to-ceiling red mosaic backsplashes, while incredible floating wooden stairs lead up to the loft master bedroom and private rooftop deck.

The other August closing was Unit #W109, which sold for full price at $900,000. The ground-level apartment has one bedroom, 1.5 baths and 1,150 square feet of living space. French doors leads out to an 800 square foot patio. The gourmet kitchen has granite counters and an extended breakfast bar. The bedroom has direct access to a bathroom with a granite twin-sink vanity. The powder room bath adds another level of convenience. One parking space is included.

The Wooster and Mercer Lofts are ideally located along Clarendon Boulevard, allowing for plenty of walk-friendly excursions to shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment. Condominium amenities include a swimming pool, front desk and concierge, club room, fitness center, courtyards and a dog park. Although Rosslyn is the community of record, the complex is also quite close to next-door Courthouse neighborhood. This allows for an even greater number of walkable options along the trendy Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor, as well as easy access to nearby Metro stations.
