Turnberry Tower
Turnberry Tower

Over the past two years, Turnberry Tower made news as the fastest-selling luxury condominium in the DC area. During that time the project has completed more than $250 million in sales. Not surprisingly, it has showed no signs of slowing these last few months with the building currently over 95 percent sold (up from 90 percent in June).

Turnberry Tower now has nine units still on the market and is on track to meet its prediction of complete sell-out by the end of 2012.

The remaining available homes include five one-bedrooms and just a handful of penthouses. One-bedrooms start at 1,300 square feet and have an additional 250 square feet of covered, private terrace space. They are priced between $750k and $850k.

The penthouses (located on the top seven floors of the building) have two or three bedrooms and start at 2,600 square feet—not including sprawling private terraces, which measure up to 1,000 square feet each. They are priced between $2.5 and over $4 million.

On all counts—unit size, amenities, finishes, terrace space, views—Turnberry Tower is a luxury condominium in a class of its own. And once these remaining units are gone, it will be several years before the city sees anything like it again.


Turnberry Tower is located in Rosslyn, blocks from Key Bridge and the Rosslyn Metro station (map). It is also the tallest residential building in the DC Metro area, topping out at 26 floors. Units have 9 to 10-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and spectacular views of DC and Virginia.

Inside, all of the details are luxe: Italian cabinetry, Miele appliances, granite countertops, European kitchens and bathrooms, and 300+ square-foot private terraces. Residents have access to private elevators. And there’s a 24-hour doorman, indoor pool and Jacuzzi, sprawling fitness center, and 24-hour free valet parking. 


Remarkably, there is very little, if any, resale inventory currently on the market in Turnberry Tower. “Existing residents love it so much they’re not looking to move anytime soon,” says Dan Riordan, Turnberry Associates’ President of Residential Real Estate. As these last one-bedroom and penthouse homes go, so goes the last guaranteed opportunity to live in this luxury tower.

With this in mind, Turnberry’s Riordan is looking to the future: “We are aggressively seeking new sites and opportunities. We want to continue to expand the Turnberry brand in the DC area.” He can be reached to discuss development sites or joint venture opportunities through the sales office or by .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Prospective buyers interested in seeing one of the last Turnberry Tower units should contact the sales office at 703-243-3000. The office is open seven days a week from 9am to 6pm. For more information on Turnberry Tower, visit the website.
