Designed to bring an unprecedented level of exceptional living and personalized service to northern Virginia’s rapidly transforming Tysons, the 20-story Monarch condominium tower is now under construction at 7887 Jones Branch Drive, with delivery scheduled for late 2020. A fully furnished and equipped two-bedroom with den model home is now available for touring inside Monarch’s newly opened sales center at 1650 Tysons Boulevard, adjacent to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Tysons Galleria.

Monarch is the latest and most ambitious project of longtime Washington, DC area developer Renaissance, which has built thousands of single-family and multifamily homes throughout northern Virginia for over 35 years.

Monarch’s 94 residences feature more than a dozen different floorplans ranging from 880 to 3,400 square feet, and are priced from the $600,000s to just over $3 million. In a freestanding structure with only two to six units per floor, all residences will have floor-to-ceiling windows on two or three sides and expansive outdoor balconies or terraces. Many of the units will have semi-private elevator access.

Unlike most of the new high-density residential development in Tysons, Monarch brings the outdoors inside with its elevated garden terrace. This lushly landscaped space will have an inviting swimming pool surrounded by lounge seating, fire pits, trellises, and outdoor TVs. The terrace overlooks a stand of mature trees, where Monarch’s residents will be able to stroll in the shade with families, friends, and pets.

“It’s this combination of serenity and excitement that makes Monarch unique,” commented developer Albert H. Small, Jr., founder of Renaissance. “This will be a true vertical community, where you can make friends for a lifetime, while enjoying single-level contemporary living with fabulous views and access to everything.”

Even when the weather is less than optimal, there will be plenty to do indoors at Monarch. Adjacent to the garden terrace is an impressive residents’ lounge with a fireplace, library, bar area, business center, and catering kitchen, along with comfortable seating for intimate conversations or large functions. Just beyond the lounge is a state-of-the-art fitness center with Peloton and other high-end equipment, yoga room, spa-like locker rooms, and personalized fitness options. Topping it all off is The Crown, Monarch’s exclusive 20th floor club room with stunning 180-degree views, a catering kitchen, and a private dining room that can be reserved for meetings or parties.

Monarch’s meticulously designed residences are distinguished by spacious living rooms that are perfect for entertaining, walk-in showers, large closets, luxurious baths, and white oak flooring throughout. The open chef-inspired kitchens have oversized waterfall and dual overhang kitchen islands, natural quartz countertops and backsplashes, concealed-panel European Miele appliances, and modern Italkraft cabinetry. Optional upgrades include natural stone selections, custom-built closets, heated floors, wine refrigeration, and more.

“When you purchase a home at Monarch, you’re not just getting gorgeous space and amenities, but also a level of personal attention and pampering that you won’t find anywhere else in northern Virginia,” Small continued. “As you step into the soaring 20-foot lobby, our lobby attendant will greet you, park your car if you like, and help you with groceries or packages. Monarch’s 24-hour white-glove concierge can schedule your next yoga class, obtain that impossible-to-get dinner reservation, help you hire a dog-walker, make sure your plants are watered when you’re gone, and much more. Whether you work hard or you’re retired from working hard, we think you deserve the stress-free lifestyle that Monarch will provide.” Dedicated underground parking and 6,000 SF of ground-level retail space will enhance the convenience of living at Monarch.

Monarch is located within Arbor Row, an emerging 19-acre community just minutes from the Ritz-Carlton hotel, the Tysons Corner Metro station, singular restaurants including The Palm and Fogo de Chao, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Tysons Galleria shopping mall with more than 100 upscale stores. The former site of 1970s-era office buildings, Arbor Row will soon have more than 2,500 residences as well as 35,000 square feet of ground-level restaurants and shops.

“Arbor Row is the new Tysons’ most livable neighborhood,” remarked Small. “There already are pedestrian pathways that lead to enticing restaurants and shops, and more green space than you will find anywhere else in Tysons. With both Wegman’s and Whole Foods opening soon in the immediate area, Arbor Row will offer extensive options to support a healthy lifestyle.”

While residents may never want to leave Monarch, getting away is easy. The new Jones Branch Connector links the eastern and central portions of Tysons and provides direct access to I-495, while the Beltway’s new HOT lanes reduce travel time to I-66, I-395, and the entire region. Metrorail has opened three stations in Tysons and is scheduled to complete the Silver Line extension to Washington Dulles International Airport concurrently with Monarch’s delivery in late 2020.
