- The Washington Times - Wednesday, January 31, 2007

Arlington’s proximity to the District and its abundance of Metro stations have helped drive this county’s de-

velopment in a time when commuters are weary of long commutes. With little land left to develop into housing tracts, Arlington’s new housing primarily consists of condominiums popular with young singles and couples or with empty-nesters ready for a taste of urban life.

Shops, restaurants and night life are easily accessible in Arlington, and residents can easily hop onto a Metro train to reach downtown Washington for more options.

Among the many choices of condominiums in Arlington, several are designed to take advantage of the views of Washington and its monuments.

Turnberry Associates is building Turnberry Tower, a condominium community at 1850 N. Fort Myer Drive in Rosslyn with panoramic views of Georgetown, monuments and landmarks and the Potomac River.

Turnberry Tower features direct-entry private elevators into the homes, 24-hour valet, concierge and front desk services and “smart home” technology, which allows homeowners to maintain digital contact with their home and concierge services.

The condominium includes a spa and fitness center, an indoor swimming pool, a media room, social rooms and a cafe. The multilevel garage will include assigned spaces and have some individual garages available for cars and motorcycles.

Inside, each of the homes will have to 9- to 11-foot smooth-finish ceilings, Italian cabinets, granite counters, Miele appliances, Jacuzzi hydrotherapy tubs, marble baths and floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive balconies.

The 26-story building will include 247 one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, with prices from the $800,000s to more than $4,000,000.
