Located between the Rosslyn and Ballston communities, Clarendon is a popular Arlington, Virginia, neighborhood, conveniently situated on the Orange Metro Line. Over the last few years, Clarendon has experienced a rebirth with some of its older buildings razed in favor of new retail shops, such as Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Pottery Barn, and the Cheesecake Factory. New residential construction along Wilson Boulevard has also helped to contribute to Clarendon’s emergence as an “it” place with an eclectic mix of small bars and restaurants and expanded shopping opportunities.
The housing inventory features a mix of single-family detached homes, townhouses, and high-rise condos, including Station Square, the Phoenix, and the Clarendon 1021, to name a few. Clarendon Park is a townhouse development located south of the Crate & Barrel while single family homes largely dominate the Lyon Park and Lyon Village communities. Given all of the recent activity in Clarendon, many older single-family homes are being rehabbed or razed completely to make way for new home construction.
Clarendon is served by the Clarendon Metro Stop on the Orange Line and bounded by Wilson and Clarendon Boulevard as the main thoroughfares.
