ATP is excited to welcome its most recent Gold Level Champion, Ballston Point. This property, located in Ballston at the intersection of N Glebe Road and Wilson Boulevard, is an 11 story office tower owned and managed by Monument Realty. The award-winning, mixed-use property features 240,000 square feet of Class A office space as well as additional 20,000 square feet of retail space.

Ideally located just two blocks from the Ballston Metro Station and adjacent to the Ballston Mall, Ballston Point is surrounded by numerous transportation options and features an incredible WalkScore of 96. Over 20 different bus routes stop within a quarter mile of the building, including six ART bus routes connecting riders to destinations such as the Pentagon, Virginia Hospital Center and Shirlington. In addition, there is a Capital Bikeshare station one block away from the building and the neighborhood of Ballston features bike lanes on main thoroughfares including Wilson Blvd and N Fairfax Drive.
