The Ballston-Virginia Square Civic Association (BVSCA) community is located in the heart of Arlington County, Virginia. The boundaries of the BVSCA community are Glebe Road on the west, Kirkwood Road on the east, Route I-66 on the north, and Wilson Boulevard on the south. The BVSCA community is predominately a residential neighborhood with older single-family homes and small low-rise apartments and newer condominiums and townhouses. In 1979, the Orange Line of the Metrorail system brought two Metro subway stations to our area. This has resulted in high-rise development of office and condominiums along the Metro Corridor, such as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) Training Center, Lexington Square Condominiums, Tower Villas Condominiums, Virginia Square Condominiums, and Virginia Square Plaza Apartments within a few blocks of the Virginia Square Metro stop; and the National Science Foundation, Alta Vista Condominiums, the Ballston Place Apartments, Richmond Square Apartments and The Jefferson by Marriott -- a senior living condominium community near the Ballston Metro stop.
The BVSCA community contains three parks, three schools, the Arlington County Central Library, Arlington's School Administration Building, and Arlington's Planetarium. Our community also contains four churches, a YMCA, the Ballston Commons Shopping Center, numerous retail establishments, and very fine local restaurants.
