Rental housing shortages have plagued the Washington region for years, but now renters are finding new options in the Washington suburbs. The Loren, a mixed-used community co-developed and managed by Bozzuto, recently opened at 6410 Arlington Blvd. in Falls Church, Va.

The 185-unit development includes apartments ranging from studios to two-bedroom units with a den. In addition, the Loren includes rental townhouses with three levels, two bedrooms, a private terrace and more than 1,600 square feet of living space.

Restaurants and shops will be part of the development, which is near the East Falls Church Metro station as well as several commuter routes. Free shuttle bus service is provided to the Metro station.

The Loren’s amenities, designed to provide an atmosphere similar to a hotel, include a swimming pool, an entertaining kitchen with an 18-foot-long farm table, a fitness center, a lounge with a fireplace, a meeting room and a coffee bar. The community also has a garage for residents.

The residences include open floor plans, granite counters, stainless-steel appliances and tile bathrooms. Rents range from $1,795 to $3,525 for the apartments and from $3,325 to $3,525 for the townhouses.
