Available Ballston (Arlington, VA) High-Rise Condos are Metro-Accessible

Ballston Mall -- Arlington VA

Ballston is a bustling and very popular area of Arlington, Virginia.  Centered around the Ballston Metro stop and the Ballston Common Mall, there are many high-rise condominium and apartment buildings in this location situated in a triangular area in the corner between Glebe Road and Fairfax Drive (see the interactive map below) 

The last Arlington stop on the Orange Line of the Metro, Ballston remains a very popular place to live for commuters.  As of early June 2010, there are 30 condo units currently available in Ballston in the following high-rise buildings:  Alta Vista, Ballston 880, The Continental, Hyde Park, Lexington Square, and the Residences at Liberty Center.

The average listing price for the available Ballston condos is $425,141 and they have averaged 46 days on the market.  1 bedroom condos range from $279,000 to $429,000 with an average price of $357,580.  2 bedroom condos range in price from $419,900 to $749,900 with an average price of $568,122.  There are also a few studio condos available in Ballston with an average price of $285,300


The Alta Vista located at 900 Stafford Street is literally right on top of the Ballston Metro station.  It was built in 1989 and offers the ultimate in convenience with indoor overstreet walkways to Ballston Mall and the movie theater.

Ballston 880 is located at 880 Pollard Street and was built in 2000.  An easy walk to the mall and the rest of Ballston's restaurants and shops.

The Continental at 851 Glebe Road was the pinnacle of luxury when it was built in 2003, just a block from the Ballston metro.  While some great views are still available from some of the higher units, unfortunately some views have been blocked by other newer construction in Ballston.

Hyde Park is an older building located at 4141 Henderson Road and built in 1973.  It is convenient to Ballston Mall and the ever-popular Harris Teeter supermarket.

Lexington Square is on the edge of Ballston and actually closer to the Virginia Square Metro.  It was built in 2000 and offers some great options for condo living in the area.

The Residences at Liberty Place is a huge building completed in 2008 right next to the Ballston Common Mall.  Condos here have all the luxury touches.

I cannot imagine getting around in DC without the metro - the streets are too crowded for parking even if you have a car!
