Continental Ballston Description
The Continental at Ballston was built in 2003 and sits on the western side of the Ballston corridor at 851 N Glebe Rd. Standing at 21 stories, it is one of the tallest condo buildings in Arlington. It is widely considered to be one of the most luxurious condo buildings in the Ballston area.
The Continental is made up of a total of 411 residences. Floor plans range from studios all the way up to large two bedrooms. Condos usually have hardwood floors but they are not ubiquitous. Other features that condos may have include a fireplace, a balcony, and a den. The balconies on the north side of the building will have an unobstructed view over Arlington starting around the 11th floor.
Amenities at The Continental Ballston include a 24/7 concierge, a recently-renovated lobby, a meeting room, a computer room, a party room, a rooftop pool, and a rooftop fitness center. Cats and dogs are allowed with a maximum of two per condo.
Individuals that live at The Continental choose to live at one of the nicest buildings in the immediate area. Other than The Residences at Liberty Center, it will be hard to match the quality of lifestyle at The Continental. Transportation is easy, walking the area is convenient, and it is just far enough off of Glebe Road and Fairfax Drive where the traffic noise is kept to a minimum. One downside is you are right next to a hotel so there are usually lots of taxis stationed near the entrance. Other than that one negative (which some may see as negligible), it is no wonder that The Continental has become one of the most popular buildings to live at in recent years.
