Question: Are there any residential properties for sale at The Boro?
Answer: Verse, a 25 story luxury condominium building that will be finished by late fall of 2019. I visited the construction site to preview their model and meet with their Sales Manager, Jennifer Harlow who shared all the details with me. I’m excited to tell you all about it.
But first, what is The Boro?
If you have visited Tysons lately, chances are you have noticed the massive construction of The Boro. Located between Route 7 and Greensboro Dr, it’s the first walkable community with mixed use residential, retail, entertainment and office environment. Coming in 2019, The Boro (you guessed it, short for Greensboro) will be a whole new downtown.
Verse is the first condominium built within the last decade in the Tysons area. It offers 23 different floor plans ranging from one bedroom to three bedroom with a den units. It is 40% sold out and sales prices range from $500,000 to $2.8 million. The 25th level has three Penthouse units, each with a private terrace, and they all have sold out.
What I Like About Verse
- Modern convenience of having everything at your fingertips
It is located steps away from Greensboro Metro. That is a 20 minute commute to Dulles Airport, and 30 minutes to D.C. on the Silver Line. Properties include garage parking (additional parking can be rented for $95 a month) but the goal is for residents to enjoy the local businesses without even leaving their community.
Residents are walking distance to approximately 17 restaurants (one of them is a sister restaurant of True Food!), high-end shops, state of the art movie theaters, Bluestone Lane coffee, dry cleaners, a nail salon, fitness studios, the biggest Whole Foods in the east coast and even a pet spa for Fido!
- Perfect balance of luxury and function
These condos start on the 10th floor and all units have floor to ceiling windows. That means natural light and amazing views. On top of that, all corner units have a wraparound balcony that allows for some alfresco dining on nice weather days.
A clean and sophisticated floor plan. The chef’s kitchen has a gas stove that vents out to the top, quartz counters, Italian integrated cabinetry (plenty of cabinet space), concealed Bosch appliances and an under-counter wine cooler. Appliances are included in the sales price.
The master suite in the corner two bedroom unit has access to the balcony, a walk-in closet, marbleized floors in the bathrooms, architectural lighting and a spa shower with integrated bench. All cabinets are spacious and soft close.
There’s generous space throughout, plenty of storage closets and additional storage available for purchase.
Other than the 24-hour concierge service and the entry lobby lounge with a fireplace, there’s a club room available for rent for private parties with double height ceilings, fireplaces, billiard tables, TVs, kitchens and terrace access. Residents can also rent a hospitality suite for their visitors.
The building has a 3,000 sq. ft. fitness studio with top of the line equipment connecting to a Zen terrace and a rooftop pool.
The outdoor space includes access to Sky Park, an impeccable landscaped rooftop park where residents can lounge, grill, play bocce ball and enjoy the inviting green space.
Condo fees go for $0.65 per sq. ft. and include water and gas.
An Ideal Place to Live, Work And Play
The Boro will be a vibrant community with many walkable amenities, including pedestrian-friendly roadways, bike lanes and open greenspaces designed to bring people outside.
