Rosslyn

With its unique combination of connections to three Metro lines, a quick bridge crossing to Georgetown, direct access to major highways, and stunning views of the DC skyline, Rosslyn has long served as Arlington's corporate base with Fortune 500 companies (Nestle USA and Bloomberg BNA), media bigwigs (Graham Holdings and Politico), and fast-growing tech companies (Phone2Action) calling it home. In recent years, all those attributes have also attracted a youthful residential base, with 60% in the 20 to 39 age range, that is ready for Rosslyn to take the next steps in its transformation into a more 24/7 community.

The retail market is responding to the influx of residents, as Rosslyn is now home to a pirate-themed brew pub, a German beer garden, Target Express, and several highly-reviewed restaurants.
