Delta Associates Salutes Property as Top in Region

The luxurious Pierce condominium took home top honors from Delta Associates as the prime property in its residential class for 2022. Pierce’s popularity continues to dominate the regional condominium market, selling residences above $1,000 a square foot.

“We are thrilled to win this honor as it recognizes the prestige and prominence of Pierce as a beautiful new addition to the Virginia skyline,” said John Kusturiss, Senior Vice President of Development at Pierce Highlands, LLC. “Pierce was designed to appeal to a sophisticated clientele that values an understated but classic style of living. The continuing strength of our sales is testament to that vision.”

At the Pierce sales gallery, 71 of the 104 residences have sold at prices ranging from $1 million to more than $3 million by the Mayhood Company sales team. “This is a property that attracts prospects who understand and appreciate fine workmanship and quality finishes,” said David Mayhood, president of the Mayhood Company.

The sales success is cause for celebration by The Mayhood Company, which earned three of the Delta Associates Awards in 2022, a rare trifecta in the competitive condominium market.

Construction on the three towers of The Highlands, which started in October 2018, is wrapping up. The fire station appears to have finished earlier than developer Penzance anticipated. A spokeswoman previously told ARLnow the station would be ready in the fall, along with a new apartment tower and condo tower.

Aubrey has many of the amenities one would expect at a luxury apartment—a rooftop pool, an exhibition kitchen, a coworking area, a high-end gym—and Pierce has a two-story fitness center. But Evo’s amenities are especially bougie. Think a 65-foot-long rooftop pool […]
