I am going to be relocating to D.C. at the beginning of June and I am hoping that someone from that area can tell me about some of the apartment options there. I have already been through a number of apartment search sites and I'm going to be heading out there mid May to look in person. I'm just looking for some advice so that I can limit the scope of my search somewhat.
I am going to be splitting time between two offices in the D.C. area. One is right next to the Metro Center station, and the other is right next to the Court House station, both of which are on the Orange line. For that reason, I've mostly been looking at areas near the Orange line, or on the Blue line since I can transfer at Rosslyn. So Crystal City, Rosslyn, Courthouse, Clarendon, Ballston, all seem like reasonable options. Are there are other areas I should be thinking about or is there is a specific place in one of those areas you would recommend?
When I was out to interview I walked by a couple of the apartments near the Court House station that looked nice enough from the outside (Courtland Towers
, Archstone Courthouse Plaza
, Arlington Courthouse Place
). We're looking for something like a large 1BR or a small 2BR around $1500-$1800 a month. Any suggestions or recommendations are greatly appreciated.
