Memorial Overlook Condo Description
Built in 2002, Memorial Overlook is a boutique condominium that features some of the largest floor plans in the area. The upscale community is made of just 35 residences on six stories and all but four of the condos are two and three-bedroom layouts.
The key difference with Memorial Overlook compared to other condos in Rosslyn is that residences in this community have friendlier floor plans. This means that there is an actual entranceway into the condominium, compared with some condos where you walk right into the kitchen. Or you walk right into the living room. Memorial Overlook’s layouts are designed with spaces that are not normally found in condominium floor plans. These are spaces like a foyer in the entranceway, a formal dining room, a dedicated living room, a breakfast nook, and potentially a den. Some Rosslyn condos like Turnberry Tower and larger condos for sale at The Atrium will have these features, but most condos cannot say the same.
The one-bedroom floor plans at Memorial Overlook will start just over 1,000 square feet. Two-bedroom layouts will start around 1,600 square feet while most will be around the 2,000 square foot threshold. And finally, three-bedroom floor plans can reach as much as 2,700 square feet. These are large units with lavish finishes. All condos will come with a balcony, and all units except for one will come with a fireplace.
Kitchens at Memorial Overlook will feature a wall oven, a kitchen breakfast bar, and plenty of storage space. Kitchens are one of the many reasons Memorial Overlook is so sought-after. They are spacious, open, and will satisfy even the most discerning tastes.
Most kitchens will look out over the living room area. Off of the living room is the balcony which can sometimes be of the ‘wrap-around’ style. This is a major asset to the community because the building is situated to look out over the Iwo Jima Memorial, the Netherlands Carillon, and national parkland. Even residences on the first and second levels will enjoy a park view.
The topography of Radnor Ft-Myer Heights is such that when you walk into the lobby at Memorial Overlook Arlington VA you are actually already on the third level of the community. It may feel like you are going underground to reach the first and second level but you can be assured that these two levels still produce private views of the park without any loss in value by being below the lobby level.
Even though there are only 35 residences, Memorial Overlook does provide its residents with a fitness center, a community room, and a security guard.
Memorial Overlook is quite possibly the most luxurious low-rise community in Arlington. It competes head-to-head with its Rosslyn neighbor The Dakota. While Memorial Overlook Arlington VA does not have private elevator access, it does beat out The Dakota in square feet, amenities, and depending on the unit, the view will be better at Memorial Overlook.
The main downside of Memorial Overlook is the immediate location. Radnor – Ft. Myer Heights is in a residential part of Rosslyn that is a bit of a hike to the Metro. The location might actually be better from a driving point-of-view because you will have less traffic to access the main highways in the area. Walking will take you about 15 minutes to get to the Metro. But on the other hand, if you like quiet neighbors and do not mind being a little bit away from the heart of the city, the location could be an advantage

The location provides walkability without the congestion, and the community offers amenities without going overboard. It is a great choice for buyers that need more square feet and want an alternative to luxury high-rise communities.
