I was wondering if anyone could recommend any apartments in these areas. I'm looking to spend 1,500-1,800 for a 1 bedroom.

I live in Dorchester Towers in South Arlington which is only a 10 minute drive from Clarendon/Ballston with bad traffic. It is near the Pentagon, has a beautiful garden on the roof and is within walking distance from a lot of shops. I am paying around $1200 for a 1 bedroom, and that includes all utilities.

Just a suggestion that you might also want to consider renting a condo from owner in these areas. You are likely to find well maintained units in nice buildings for less than the going rate in apartment complexes.

I just looked at a bunch of properties managed by Dittmar in that area in that price range. All of these are in easy walking distance of Courthouse, Clarendon, Virginia Square, or Ballston Metro stations. I seriously considered all of them, and did end up settling on one: Courtland Park, Courtland Towers, Virginia Square Plaza, Quincy Plaza, Randolph Towers, Richmond Square. Most of those include utilities and have underground parking. The Gallery at Virginia Square, owned by a different company, was also very nice, but pricey. The rents vary with the market though, and can change from week to week.

Hester I agree, I am with one of the apartments above as well and I really love it here, can't think of renting anyplace else.

I rented a large studio condo from the owner in Ballston area for years. The rent is very low. You can probably find a better deal renting a condo directly from the owner than renting from an apartment complex.

Hi -- How old is Dorchester Towers? How safe is the neighborhood? Is there garage parking? And most importantly, is the washer/dryer in each unit?

Thank you.

Because the place is absolutely infested with roaches. I had friends who moved out of that place for that reason. I would advise looking elsewhere.

I lived there for years, never had any issues.

New management did a good job taking care of them.
