Welcome to Rosslyn

Set as Arlington’s entryway into Washington, Rosslyn has, since its inception, been closely connected with the District of Columbia.
The area’s history started out humbly during the colonial period as the Ross Family Farm, and then eventually grew into a larger community entitled Ross Lynn. Not far from this farm, at the shore of the Potomac River lay the landing dock of Awbrey’s Ferry. Like a taxi service and in lieu of a connecting bridge, Awbrey’s Ferry acted as the primary mode of transport linking Virginia to DC.
By 1843, however, the Aqueduct Bridge had been built. Now there was the added ability to transport people and goods on the ground – a cheaper, easier, and more practical method overall than the existing ferry system. Though this bridge proved unsustainable with inadequate infrastructure, it laid the groundwork for the subsequent slew of bridges, including a second Aqueduct Bridge and then later the present Key Bridge.
Dubbed “the Principle Gateway,” Rosslyn has and seemingly always will be the archetypal liaison between DC and Virginia. With such convenient waterfront placement so close to DC, it has always been fated for such prosperity. In this respect, not only is it the nearest point to the nation’s capital outside the District, but it also is the market’s natural spillover when needing new office space.
