Ten at Clarendon offers a variety of floor plans to meet the changing needs of Arlington County renters in addition to well-conceived one and two-bedroom apartments, the community also offers three- and four-bedroom apartment homes for those who seek a more cost-effective "per-bedroom" rent and families who need more space, but do not want to sacrifice location and an amenity-rich lifestyle. A first-of-their-kind for Clarendon, these expansive apartments are competitively priced to local townhomes and houses making large group rooming situations possible for the first time in luxury apartments in the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor.
Eight street-level live/work units along 10th Street North support the burgeoning community of DC area entrepreneurs and have supported the rise of successful small business ventures including a wellness spa and frame shop.
Ten at Clarendon's robust amenity package spans a wide range of well-designed recreation options including a rooftop courtyard with a fireplace, grilling areas, TVs, foosball, artificial turf and an organic vegetable garden, in addition to an outdoor patio, communal dining and lounge areas, study and meeting space and exercise facilities on the building's main level.
Unique lifestyle services designed to simplify residents' everyday lives and cater to those who live on-the-go include keyless apartment entry, Nest thermostats for temperature control via mobile app, video intercom system that allows residents to view and approve guests from their phones, USB charging ports in each unit. A self-service lobby market offers a vast array of fresh prepared foods and grocery essentials so residents can grab a bite whenever hunger strikes.
Catering to asset-light target markets including millennials and empty nesters alike, our innovative lending library, Lend at Ten, frees up space in residents' homes by providing a library of items that are needed for anything from daily activities to weekend outings. Items range from golf clubs and extension cords to crock pots and champagne flutes. The Lend at Ten program helps residents save money and eliminates the need to purchase and store these items in their apartments. Another cost saving benefit for our residents is the Perx at Ten discount program, which leverages the spending power of a 143-unit building by forming partnership with local restaurants and retail establishments to offer exclusive access and special perks to connect residents to their bustling Clarendon neighborhood and support local Northern Virginia businesses. To build camaraderie, the Ten hosts regular programming open to both residents and the community at large like pet "yappy hours", free rooftop Barre3 classes, weekend mimosa bars and the signature Tenth at Ten Oktoberfest event.
