Arlington, VA 22202
Map It!


The Ashley at Riverhouse is located in Pentagon City, a vibrant submarket in Arlington, Virginia, across the river from downtown Washington, D.C. Pentagon City provides a world-class selection of urban amenities including a wide variety of restaurants, shopping centers, retailers, hotels, and recreation activities clustered around the Pentagon City Metrorail Station (Serving the Yellow and Blue lines).

The Ashley was completed in 1962 and is a 16-story, 571-unit apartment building. Since 2001, all units have been upgraded to include new kitchens and baths. In 2005, new energy efficient windows were installed. Since 2010, other significant improvements have been completed, including updated laundry rooms, a new fitness center, lobby renovations, a redesign of the common spaces, and the addition of a new management office.

The building uses an efficient 2-pipe closed loop hydronic HVAC system with fan coil units in each residence. The heating system uses two Cleaver Brooks hydronic 350 HP fire tube boilers, and cooling is provided by two Trane chillers. The building is master metered, with a few electricity and gas meters that serve the entire building, including the residences. The Ashley utilizes a Ratio Utility Billing System to recover utility costs from residents; therefore, improving energy efficiency is a great opportunity for the community. The property’s ENERGY STAR certification will be an added benefit to our environmentally conscious consumers and will provide a competitive advantage for Vornado Residential.

The Ashley is located on a campus adjacent to two similar high-rise apartment buildings, totaling 1,670 units and approximately 1.3 million rentable square feet on the campus. The property is owned and managed by Vornado/Charles E. Smith, one of the largest building owners and managers in the greater Washington D.C. area and a division of Vornado Realty Trust, an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year itself.
