Welcome to the new American Dream.

One with untraffic, unaggravation, unsuburbs, unboredom and a totally uncommon way of life. Ballston Quarter is a true urban village filled with people who want to live where they also work and play—people who want to live life to the fullest. Everything you need is just footsteps away. Located on the Metro four miles from DC, Ballston Quarter is a place where all of Arlington will come together to experience a life that’s as purposeful, thoughtful and true as you are. This is the new American Dream. And it’s happening right here in Ballston.
