Ballston

As Arlington’s epicenter for science and research, Ballston is rapidly changing to meet the needs of its business and residential community, and that means increased entertainment, restaurants and cultural activities, as well as the technology infrastructure needed to support science, technology and entrepreneurship. With more than 7.5 million square feet of office, more than a million sf of retail, and nearly 7,900 residential units, as well as unique assets like the Kettler Capitals Iceplex (home of the Washington Capitals) and the pending redevelopment of the Ballston Common Mall, Ballston is poised for new and exciting retail.
