Pros and Cons

As a realtor in the Tysons Corner area, I’ve been able to personally see and work with many condo communities in the area. This has allowed me to create a personal attachment with each community and see how they compare with each other. I’ll be as unbiased as possible, but these pros and cons of One Park Crest are coming from my perspective.


Pros:

You’re in the center of everything, the location is absolutely perfect and you’re within walking distance to metro stations, Harris Teeter, two huge malls and much more
Floor-to-ceiling windows in most units, luxury floor plans with a minimalist design
A beautiful view, especially if you’re in the higher floors
The rooftop pool is lovely and you need to take advantage of it
Unbeatable amenities like the One park Crest pool, gym and so much more
Underground parking is available, but you must be careful about this when buying the condo. You’ll only have access to underground parking if the original condo owner purchased the One Park Crest parking spaces. Depending on the owner, you can get anywhere from zero to two spots. Unassigned One Park Crest parking is always available, but having underground parking spaces improves resale value while also making the unit easier to sell in general
The higher floors give you a spectacular view of McLean and Tysons Corner


Cons:

The major disadvantage of One Park Crest is the scarcity of resident and visitor parking. As stated above, only certain One Park Crest condos have access to the underground parking garage. You can park in the unassigned lot, but it’s somewhat inconvenient. It’s worse for visitors as there are only 20 visitor spots for the 300+ residents to share. Many visitors park at Harris Teeter and walk to One Park Crest while others use Uber or Lyft to reach their friends and family. We are hopeful that One Park Crest gets more parking spaces to alleviate this situation
-The Park Crest condos are not affordable compared to other condos in this area. One Park Crest is prized for being a luxury community and the prices reflect that. If you’re looking for a condo in a similar area, then consider the Rotonda as an alternative
