The first 14 of 89 new condos in Arlington's Courthouse section have finished construction, with the remaining units expected by the end of 2009. With neighbors like the Iwo Jima Memorial and views of the National Mall, Reston-based Waterford Development's Rhodes Hill Square condos may retail for up to $1 million.
Designed by Heffner Architects PC, the units are all large, ranging in size from 1,100 s.f. to over 2,000 s.f. The three wood-framed, 4-story buildings stand over concrete underground parking garages. Most units, 73 of the 89 total, are two stories. All first-level condos private terraces while the upper units provide private rooftop terraces, with standardized finishes like oak floors and granite counters.
The condos cover the area surrounded by N. Rhodes St., 14th St N., N. Rolfe St., and 16th St. North, about three blocks from the Courthouse Metro. WCS Construction managed the project. Construction began in June of 2008, replacing what was largely a vacant field. Waterford has also developed several condominiums in Fairfax, VA.
