After much anticipation, the long awaited Phase I of the Silver Line is finally open! Phase 1 connects Tysons Corner and Reston to the DC Metrorail system and is the first new rail line in more than 2 decades. By 2018, Phase 2 is expected to be completed connecting to Dulles International Airport and into Loudoun County.

This is particularly good news for apartment dwellers who are now enjoying the benefits of free shuttles and, in some cases, the ability to walk to a local Metro station. Below are several apartment communities that have excellent access to the new rail system.

Post Tysons Corner is less than 1/2 mile from the Tysons Corner Metro Station. This community is spread over 16 beautiful, wooded acres. Now residents can enjoy the country setting and an amazing quick commute into the city!

The Reserve at Tysons Corner is one of newest, luxury apartment buildings in Tysons Corner. Units boasts granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and hardwood flooring.  Residents can indulge in free Starbucks coffee every morning, a private movie theater and a brand new bark park. To top it off, the community is only a 15 walk to the Tysons Corner Metro Station!

Colvin Woods is located only 2 miles from popular Reston Town Center. This mixed use development offers more than 50 retail shops, 30 restaurants, concerts, festivals and winter ice skating. Just outside Colvin Woods, there is a metro connector that takes commuters less than 2 miles to the Wiehle-Reston Metro Station. Apartments in this community offer gourmet kitchens, an off leash dog park and walking trails to Lake Anne and Lake Fairfax!

The ICON at Dulles is a favorite among apartment dwellers. This gorgeous community has authentic, hand-scraped, hickory hardwood floors in all units! Amenities include a beautiful pool, indoor basketball court, a sports court, and so much more. Now located only minutes from the new Silver Line, this community is certainly in hot demand. 

The Point at McNair Farms is a garden style community with spacious 1 and 2 bedroom floor plans. The community offers free shuttle rides to the Wiehle-Reston Metro Station. Amenities include a resort-style swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, a community tennis court and a children's playground.

The Point at Dulles  also offers free shuttle service to the Wiehle-Reston Metro Station. The community is minutes away from the Dulles Toll Road, Route 28 and Dulles International Airport. The features and finishes at The Point at Dulles rival those found in Northern Virginia's luxury custom homes. Apartments feature everything from gourmet style kitchens was gas cooking to crown molding with designer paint schemes.
