According to off-the-record sources at Stanley Martin, when the developer broke ground on the Crest in September 2007, they were anticipating a four year build-out period to complete all of the development's 171 garage townhomes. A little more than a year later, all of the 40 houses completed so far have sold out and the developer now plans to wrap up in under three - a little more than a year ahead of schedule. The project's Phase II component is on-track to deliver in spring of next year and half of those 14 units nearing completion have already been taken off the market by buyers.
Next year’s new units are the developer’s Provence model (pictured) and range from 2,260 to 2,310 square feet. A model unit of the Phase I homes will remain open through mid-December. Prices start in the $600,000 range.
Located at the intersection of South Shirlington Road and South Four Mile Run Drive, the Crest project is latest component of a mini development boom for the Shirlington area. Shirlington Crest stands just across the way from the recently completed Bowman’s Hill Towns 20-unit townhome project, which was completed in summer 2007. Other projects in the area include Monument Realty’s Randolph Square, Windsor Communities’ Io Piazza condominiums, Federal Realty’s newly expanded Village at Shirlington retail center and the upcoming bus station/transportation hub, the Shirlington Transit Center.

Not bad for a suburb with the silliest name in the metro area, eh?
