Easy living at the Gates of McLean

Located just down the street from Tysons Corner mall, Gates of Mclean is a community I have been active in for many years. Gates of Mclean is a medium sized condominium community squeezed in between I-495, Chain Bridge Road and the Capital One campus. Gates of Mclean was built back in 1997 as an apartment complex, the first Capital One building was built a few years later, and the community was converted to condominiums in the optimistic real estate market around 2004. Like everywhere else at the time, units sold quickly and at ever increasing prices.

Since those early days, recent years have seen optimism and popularity grow in tandem with the completion of the Mclean metro down the street and the further development of the Capital One campus across the street. Among other great new and planned amenities – a Starbucks and a Wegmans.

The Gates of Mclean is a well-run community. The condominium association and onsite management office both navigated the construction challenges adjacent and inside the community well. The front of the community had to be reworked due to the Capital One campus constructions  due to the Scotts Crossing connector construction. The disruptions to the community were not minor – but in the end the front of the community looks better than ever with new entry gates, electric vehicle chargers and glass barriers against Scott Crossing.

The location is fantastic and you can use the metro every day as it is within easy walking distance. If you use a car hopping on and off the major roadways will be a breeze – and the Scotts Crossing Connector gives you a great shortcut right into the heart of Tysons Corner.

We currently have a few great units for sale in the community:
