The Residences at Liberty Center: Comfortable Convenience With a View

The Residences at Liberty Center: Comfortable Convenience With a View: Figure 1

Located about four blocks from the Ballston Metro, Liberty Center’s biggest selling point may be its proximity to everyday conveniences. During a walk from the Metro, this author passed five nail salons, six deli/sandwich shops and five dry cleaners, all of which reminded him of the Upper West Side in Manhattan. Admittedly that comparison could be a stretch for some, so if that does not sell you on the development, perhaps the view above of the DC skyline from the development’s roof will.

Living Space

Liberty Center is a 21-story, 233-unit luxury condo development. It has approximately 28 one and two-bedroom units remaining, most of which have very open floorplans similar to almost any new condo development on the market right now. Prices range from $360,000 for a 700 square-foot one-bedroom to $685,900 for a 1,250 square-foot two-bedroom with den unit. HOA fees range from $349 to $591 a month and include water.

Kitchen at Liberty Center

Two levels of furnishings are being offered at Liberty Center. Standard apartments are equipped with 42-inch maple cabinets, granite kitchen counters with ceramic backsplash, GE Profile appliances, 8 to 9-foot granite kitchen islands with 10-inch overhangs for bar stools and bathrooms with granite vanity tops, ceramic flooring and separate deep soaking tub and glass enclosed showers with rainfall showerheads.

The 20th floor and penthouse levels sport upgrade packages including stainless steel Miele chimney hoods, cook-tops and dishwashers, Bosch convection ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerators and Snaidero cabinets.

Building Amenities

Liberty Center’s best amenities may be the rooftop pool and deck, which has 360-degree views of Washington and Northern Virginia. However, the development has most anything else that an amenity-minded condo buyer would want including a fitness center, a ground-level garden with grilling facilities, a common room with plasma screen TV and fireplace, controlled access parking, and a 24-hour staffed front desk.
