Virginia Square

Tucked between the booming construction in Ballston and the nightlife of Clarendon, there’s nothing but room for growth in Virginia Square. And there’s plenty happening already. As the home to George Mason University’s Arlington Campus, the neighborhood offers a youthful vibe with nearly 32% of residents in the 20-29 age range. The neighborhood is highly educated (86% have bachelor's degrees or higher) and affluent (median household income of $112,000), and there’s plenty of demand for around the clock retail, as more and more high-end residential is moving in and ready to spend.
