Tellus was inspired by ancient Roman mythology, where Tellus was the goddess of the earth—a figure who represented nature and abundance. To embody our namesake, we set out to design and develop a forward-thinking home in Arlington that would both reflect the beauty of nature as well as sustainably contribute to the well-being of our planet.

As Arlington, Virginia’s first approved LEED Gold® residential building with a Walk Score of 93%, we accomplished exactly that: a perfect marriage of elegant design and sustainability to foster a living experience like no other. Where every gorgeous space enjoyed by our residents has well-being built right into the foundation.

Throughout the building, natural finishes reflect the elements of Air, Fire, Earth, and Water, while recycled materials and sustainable products, such as recycled airplane tires for flooring material, cork wall paper, and certified green forest wood, ensure we are doing our part to reduce our impact on the earth.

Nature was the muse for our expansive lobby, where floor-to-ceiling glass connects you to the outdoors—from sunbeams spraying across the ceiling to stars falling from the sky in our lighting and the sparkling wallpaper.

Outside in our expansive haven, lush plant life native to Virginia fills our beautifully landscaped gardens, nurtured with water collected from rain and air conditioning condensation. Placed amongst them, rock sculptures and the tranquil sound of water from our fountains harmonize to create a Zen-like atmosphere that is wholly in touch with the land it inhabits.

In our celestial wall, Tellus, the goddess of Earth, is brought to union with Caellus, the god of the Sky. Designed with the assistance of the George Mason University Astronomy Department, the constellation wall’s aura, beauty, and artistry connect residents with the heavens and reveal our place in the universe: “Be humble, for you are made of EARTH. Be noble, for you are made of STARS.”

Even our location helps residents live as sustainably as they wish, with a neighborhood setting in Courthouse that’s within easy walking distance to restaurants, shops, and entertainment. Not to mention an abundance of public transportation options and bike trails that lets our residents venture out and explore the world around them.

With an ideal combination of urban city living and the peace and wellness of nature, Tellus residents enjoy luxurious living that feels as good as it looks. See yourself here? Simply contact us or just stop by to discover Tellus for yourself.
