Pentagon City Townhouses and Condos for Sale
Pentagon City Arlington VA is one of Arlington County’s urban villages, By itself, it is quite small occupying just a few blocks at the southeast corner of the county across the border from Washington DC. Indeed, it is a nice walk.
Were it not for the Mall – Pentagon City Mail – and the MetroRail Station, there would not be too much to speak about.
Indeed, the mall draws hundreds of thousands of patrons from far and near and, naturally, the Metrorail station supports the urban village lifestyle enabling convenient travel without a car.
