WOOSTER & MERCER LOFTS
The Wooster, 52-units, and The Mercer, 35-units, are two loft condominium buildings in Arlington, Virginia. As the final components of a master plan for the site, the lofts seek to fit into the steeply sloped site without overwhelming the adjacent residential neighborhood and hillside park. The Mercer anchors the corner of Queen Street and 16th Street in the Rosslyn neighborhood of Arlington, and is linked to The Wooster by a visually prominent pedestrian connection. The brick, glass, and precast form buildings are designed to evoke the feel of traditional warehouse structures, while providing unit owners with abundant natural light and modern amenities like designer kitchens and luxury baths. Typical units feature 10-foot high ceilings, while mezzanine lofts have 17-foot high ceilings. Penthouse units have 21-foot tall living spaces and private roof terraces, as well as views to the National Mall.
