Modera Avenir Place encapsulates everything today’s resident wants from an apartment community. It’s walkable. It has restaurants, retailers and an on-site grocery store. And it’s right next door to a metro station.

Mill Creek Residential, a leading multifamily investor and operator specializing in premier apartment communities across the U.S., today announced the completion of Modera Avenir Place, a transit-oriented, mixed-use community situated on the Dunn Loring-Merrifield Metro station.

The community, featuring 628 luxury apartment homes, benefits from a prime, transit-friendly location less than one mile from the Mosaic District, a newly-developed multiuse district. Among a bevy of upmarket amenities, the luxury community includes two resort-inspired pools, two club-style fitness centers, two resident lounges and two business centers.

“Modera Avenir Place encapsulates everything today’s resident wants from an apartment community. It’s walkable. It has restaurants, retailers and an on-site grocery store. And it’s right next door to a metro station,” said Peter Melmed, managing director of development for Mill Creek Residential. “We believe our residents will be enriched by the possibilities. It is not a stretch to say that Modera Avenir Place will be among the best communities Vienna has to offer for the foreseeable future.”

Situated at 2677 Avenir Place, the community consists of studio, 1- and 2-bedroom apartment homes with three types of finishes: classic modern, urban elegant and industrial chic. Modera Avenir Place is constructed along side the Dunn Loring-Merrifield stop on the Orange Line, which provides access to numerous locales including the downtown sector of Washington, D.C., about 14 miles west of the community. Nearby Route 66 also provides commuter access to the Capital city, and The Capital Beltway and Lee Highway are also easily accessible.

In addition to the numerous transit options, residents also have access to a walkable lifestyle, with many key attractions on their doorsteps. Among the retail options are Starbucks, Smashburger, BB&T, Verizon, Orange Theory Fitness, Luxury Nail Spa, Jersey Mike’s, District Taco, Arosto’s, Spice 6 and Thai by Thai. Many more are projected to open soon, including a full-size, full-service Harris Teeter grocery store. The Mosaic District is less than a mile to the south and features several retail, dining and entertainment outlets.

The apartment interiors at Modera Avenir Place contain an abundance of luxury finishes and features, including gourmet-inspired kitchens, 42-inch cabinets with various finishes, white quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, wood-style flooring, brushed nickel light fixtures, large closets and abundant storage space. Additional amenities at the pet-friendly community include a rooftop Zen garden with fire pit, a lush outdoor social area, billiards and game consoles and tech-friendly services, including the options to pay rent and submit service requests online.

Including Modera Avenir Place, Mill Creek has developed more than 4,100 additional apartments in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
