The Mercer Lofts in Arlington, VA contains 35 condominium units, and completes the realization of a site master plan, which was also developed by Cunningham | Quill Architects. This building seeks to fit into its steeply sloped site without overwhelming an adjacent residential neighborhood and hillside park. The Mercer Lofts anchor the corner of Queen Street and 16th Street in the Rosslyn neighborhood, and is linked by a visually prominent pedestrian connection to The Wooster Lofts.
The brick, glass and metal building is designed to evoke images of traditional warehouse structures, while providing owners with modern amenities of abundant natural light, designer kitchens, and luxury baths. Typical units have 10-foot high ceilings, while some units feature 17-foot high mezzanine lofts. Penthouse units in The Mercer Lofts offer 21-foot tall living spaces, private roof terraces, and views of the National Mall.
