Disappearing Views for Top Arlington Condos in Clarendon & Ballston

I just went under contract on a 2/2 1150 sq ft condo on the 16th floor in Continental condo in Arlington VA.  One of the issues was the soon to be constructed retail/office buildings across the street.  How high would they be–2 office buildings replacing the Bob Peck Chevrolet & Staples buildings?  Would the buyer’s view be obstructed?  We encountered same question at Station Square condo for sale as well with several new buildings well under way so that many units there were also losing their views. These are the types of questions you want to get your own answers for–that is for sure.

We found that the 2 buildings were going to be 10 and 7 stories high–neither of which will impact my buyer except to only enhance his Arlington condo‘s value since there are fewer units in the building now with the panoramic western views–not to mention the extra retail & restaurant across the street.

Very helpful for quick answers to the “view” questions.
