Rosslyn Homes For Sale in Arlington VA
Known as a wild and wooly neighborhood of saloons and gambling halls in the late 1800's, modern-day Rosslyn is one of Arlington's most vibrant and popular urban villages. It took some time and effort to evolve – the area went through a transformational commercial building boom in the mid 1960's that paved the way for a future in which charming old homes and eclectic shops would coexist with high-rises, franchise businesses and new mixed-use development models.
Located directly across the Potomac River from the National Mall, Rosslyn is often considered to be the most urban and modern community in Arlington. Home to around 10,000 residents, Rosslyn is a major transit hub with the intersection of Routes 29, 50, 110 and I-66, along with Orange and Blue lines at its Rosslyn Metro station, not to mention 14 Metrobus lines. Of course, Rosslyn is also a residential community with a thriving real estate market. The median list price for homes is $545,000, with slightly more single-family homes and townhouses than condominiums.

More About Rosslyn Homes For Sale - Arlington Virginia
Rosslyn's residential development didn't exactly mirror its neighbors. While some homes were built after the closing of its notorious brothels and gambling houses, it was still largely known for low-rent commercial ventures. Change did come however, with an increasing level of development throughout the 1940's and '50's. Today, the residential marketplace is a mixture of older architecture and modern glass and steel towers, as well as more recent homes and townhouses paying homage to older architectural influences. As a result, the neighborhood retains a mixed look of old and new.
From its funky shops and trendy bars to large office buildings and well-known corporate employers, Rosslyn is similar in many ways to DC downtown neighborhoods such as the U-Street Corridor or name of waterfront. In keeping with that sensibility it is a bookend component of the much talked-about Ballston-Rosslyn Corridor which also includes the neighborhoods of Clarendon and Courthouse. While this is part of a growing urban trend there is also a level of resistance to change in a number of Arlington neighborhoods. Regardless, Rosslyn has been a model of commercial success in the modern era and has continued to find the right balance with its sizable population.
