Court House Apartments
These Court House apartments reside in one of Arlington VA most convenient neighborhoods. The properties—Courtland Towers and 1325 Pierce Street—are close to the many amenities offered by this area.
This page will give you some sense the unique elements in this urban village.
Introducing Court House
The neighborhood is occasionally known as “Courthouse” and “Court House” (in case you notice any inconsistencies). The metro stop is, and always has been, the Court House Station. However, the Arlington County, Virginia sign labels the neighborhood as “COURTHOUSE”, and a new shopping zone is titled “Courthouse Plaza”.
Regardless of the name spacing, Court House is a great place to live. Like the nearby (two metro stops away) heart of our nation’s government, our Court House apartments are located in what could be called the county seat of Arlington County.
It contains all the major local government buildings, and a high density of other public and private employers. You get the bustle of the downtown seat of power, but with the distinct small community vibe that extends through Arlington.
Court House History
Like the rest of the urban village, Court House is an area rich in history. From its position as a Civil War battlefield and the home of Fort Woodbury (a frontline Union stronghold), this neighborhood connects the old and the new.
A Union battalion squared off against the Confederates in several battles, and some say the ghosts of errant soldiers lost in the bloody conflict still haunt the older buildings in the district.
Economy & Employment in Court House
Court House is a major government job area, being that it is the informal seat of Arlington. It also contains the largest library in the area (Arlington Central Library), and several large private businesses, including one of Verizon’s corporate buildings.
The Arlington campus of Strayer University is situated right above the metro station, making for easy access.
Court House Shopping & Dining
There are many shopping and dining possibilities in this vibrant urban village. The expansive Courthouse Plaza shopping center contains a number of necessary shopping options.
Summers Restaurant, Pines of Florance, Ireland’s Four Courts, and the tapas lounge Gua Rapo are just a couple of the many popular eating options.
Transportation In & Around Our Court House Apartments
Court House is essentially the hub of several major transportation thoroughfares. Besides the Court House Metro stop, you are near Lee Highway, route 66 and other major roads.
You are only a short metro ride from the rail station and connectors to the airport.
Court House lies along the Wilson Boulevard-Clarendon Boulevard corridor, which happens to have been named as one of the 10 “Great Streets” by the American Planning Association.
