Arlington offers unparalleled access to all points in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and the world. Only minutes from the Nation’s Capital by bridge or subway, Arlington is served by 11 Metrorail stations – more than any other area suburban community.
Centrally located, Arlington has a modern ground transportation network that includes major highways: Route 50, Interstate 66, the George Washington Parkway and Interstate 395. Arlington’s own Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport is ultra-convenient from each of our business districts, and to the rest of Washington, D.C. Additionally, I-66 offers 25 miles of dedicated highway providing easy access to Washington Dulles International Airport.
Arlington is the epitome of smart growth and new urbanism, with over 90 percent of all new commercial and residential development located in the Metro corridors. Since 1960, some 38 million square feet of office and commercial space has been built in the Rosslyn-Ballston or Jefferson Davis corridors, which also contain 90 percent of Arlington’s over 10,000 hotel rooms. In addition, nearly 11,000 new residential units have been built in these Metro station areas.
No community in America has had a stronger commitment to transit-oriented development.
