The Residences at Liberty Center: the Best Rooftop in Arlington
Owners of the swanky units at the Residences at Liberty Center in Arlington's Ballston neighborhood can't make up their minds on the biggest advantage to living there. They're torn between choosing from the proximity to everyday conveniences or the widely acknowledged best rooftop in Arlington. Either way, the complex appeals to both high-powered commuters as well as residents looking for a full-service building in which to relax and enjoy life. Built in 2008 by Shooshan Company as a mixed-use project, the building is located just across the street from the Ballston Common Mall as well as walking distance from the Ballston Metro, a Harris Teeter market and wealth of banks, drugstores, and nail salons. The Mall not only offers a good selection of shops and fast food eateries, it also is home to the Capitals Hockey team practice iceplex. When the team isn't working on drills, the rink is open to the public for free skate sessions. A charming mix of contrasts, Ballston combines high-rises, office buildings as well as a collection of small ethnic food restaurants and trendy night spots.
Despite living in one of DC's hottest neighborhoods, residents at Liberty Center don't have to leave the building as the development offers just about everything on-site. Residents can start the day by exercising at the state-of-the-art fitness center and then relax by the pool after dropping off their dry-cleaning just steps away from their front door. A common room with plasma TV screen and fireplace makes a cozy space for socializing with neighbors and guests. The ground-level garden with grilling facilities also encourages mingling and is an ideal spot to host an impromptu BBQ. And, then there's the rooftop deck. With a pool and lounge area, the 360-degree views of the District and Northern Virginia, are simply unrivaled and give you a sense of why you moved to the Nation's Capital in the first place.
The interiors aren't too shabby either. Homes range from 1-bedroom, 1 bedroom+ den, 2 bedroom and 2 bedroom+ den units with open floor plans, hardwood flooring and floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize the views. All residents have access to 24 x7 concierge services as well as garage parking. Standard apartments come with oversize maple or cherry cabinetry, granite counters and GE Profile stainless appliances. The 20th floor and the penthouse levels feature upgrade packages which include Sub-Zero refrigerators, and a mix of Miele and Bosch appliances. Select homes are equipped with a private balcony or terrace. But who needs a balcony when you have access to the best rooftop in Arlington?
Located between N. Fairfax Drive and Wilson Boulevard, the Residences at Liberty Center is less than a ten minute walk form the Ballston or Virginia Square Metro Stations on the Orange and Silver lines. The building also provides easy access to Downtown DC, Arlington and Northern Virginia via I-66 and Highway 50.
