Pentagon City

  • More about Arlington VA

    Arlington’s central location in the Washington DC metropolitan area, its ease of access by car and public transportation, and its highly skilled labor force have attracted an increasingly varied residential and commercial mix. Arlington’s planners have focused on a smart design which focuses neighborhoods with the highest density along the Orange Line of the Metro. Some of Arlington’s most upscale high-rises and sought after addresses are within a block or two of a Metro station.

    But as you work away from the metro, high-rises give way to townhomes and then older neighborhoods like Lyon Park feature stately older single family residences on tree-lined streets.

    Arlington has a number of prominent urban villages such as Rosslyn and Crystal City on the metro and Shirlington just off I-395. Arlington County is home to the Pentagon, Fort Myer and lies in very close proximity to numerous employment centers.
