Looking for Old Town new construction projects? We’ve got you covered!
Several Old Town new construction projects are well underway around town and The Goodhart Group has the inside scoop. Here are the latest updates as of April 2018. You can also visit this site for new construction opportunities in the rest of the City of Alexandria.
KING STREET GATEWAY
King Street Gateway is a 52-unit condominium project that includes the renovation of a row of five townhouses along King Street (1604-1616). The new condo building will be set 65′ behind the row of existing townhomes. The final design and plans are still in the works and require approval from the City. We will keep a close eye on this project and update this post as additional information becomes available.
NEW – The Strand
Another new development at the Old Town waterfront! This one is the located at The Strand, in between Hotel Indigo and Chadwicks. It will include 18 new residential condo units and three ground floor retail spaces. We were excited to hear that each of the units will have two parking spaces (though 10 units will have tandem parking), for a total of 36 spaces for residential use only. The development will be comprised of 203, 205 and 211 Strand Street and will acquire the current Chadwicks restaurant, however, the Chadwicks building and restaurant will remain the same. Two pedestrian only alleys will connect Union Street and The Strand. We don’t have opening dates for this project yet, but will update as we have more info.
NEW – Robinson Landing
Robinson Landing is the hotly debated EYA redevelopment project of Robinson Terminal South (bordered by South Union, Wolfe and Duke Streets and the Potomac River). The planned luxury waterfront Old Town new construction project includes townhomes, condominiums, fine dining, and retail space and has been designed to allow for connectivity from its surrounding streets to the Potomac waterfront. Their goal is to enhance Alexandria’s already special sense of place with many public open spaces including a grand pedestrian promenade, a re-developed pier, plentiful outdoor space, and several pieces of public art. The pier will feature a dining, a shade structure, and open space for events and art displays. As far as residences, EYA began pre-construction home sales in November 2017. First available move-ins are projected for early 2019. As of this update, 13 of these homes have been reserved by buyers.
The 70 planned condos will range from approximately 1,200 to 3,500 sq. feet and include floor plans from two bedrooms/two bathrooms up to three bedrooms / 3.5 bathrooms. The interior finishes will be contemporary in style and most of the units will offer some sort of river view. Pricing is not yet firm but expected to range from $1.3 million to $5 million for condos with the larger, upper floor river view units being the highest priced. There will also be 26 townhomes in Robinson Landing, ranging from 2,100 to 3,000 square feet. The townhomes will start at $1.6 million, with elevator townhomes in the $2-$2.5 million range. There will be about 30 to 40 variations and choices of condos with or without water views. Each residential unit will come with two highly sought-after parking spaces and private storage. An additional 58 spaces are reserved for customers and visitors, in hopes of not increasing parking problems in this popular part of town. If you would like more information as it is released, please email email@example.com and we will add you to the list for immediate updates!
Slade Townhomes, located at 601 N. Henry Street, is an 18 unit, townhouse development from Northfield homes. Slade townhomes come in three different models, with the main difference in the configuration of the master bedroom closet and bath. List prices start at $899,900 for the smaller unit with a front terrace and go up to $999,000 for a larger, end unit with loft bar.

Sited near the Braddock Road Metro and the shops and restaurants of Slaters Lane, Towns at 1333 is a new 18-unit townhome complex by Comstock Homes. These four-story townhomes, each with nearly 1,900 square feet, feature three bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and a chef-inspired kitchen. Additionally, these homes offer hardwood flooring, rooftop decks, and two car garages. All units are the Franklin floor plan, some with a 2-story bay window feature. As of this update, four units are currently available, ranging in price from $899,990 to $925,990. Six additional units will be available later in May 2018 (winter weather permitting).

The first and second phases are complete and the third and final phase is nearly final. Four townhomes are currently on the market, listed at $1,084,000. These three bedroom / 4.5 bath homes offer four levels, two car garage spaces, two rooftop terraces, and hardwoods throughout.
Brightleaf & Cooper
Brightleaf & Cooper is a new development in North Old Town. Brightleaf is located on the corner of Saint Asaph and Oronoco; Cooper is located on the corner of Pitt and Oronoco. Construction is now complete for both projects. This development offers elevators in all homes, along with small yards, rooftop terraces, detached two car garages, and hardwoods throughout. Cooper townhomes are all sold. Brightleaf homes offer three or five bedrooms, at least 3 full baths and two half baths; list prices start at $2,849,900.
The Edens Project
530 First Street, former home to a Giant supermarket, will be redeveloped by Edens, a South Carolina-based company best known locally for the bringing the Mosaic District to Fairfax. Initial plans for the site indicate there will be an organic grocer, fitness facility, boutiques, and more than 230 luxury residences. Eden’s website states the redevelopment will have “authenticity and respect for the past,” a nod to its location in historic Old Town. The development will be LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certified, ensuring it is green building certified, with the “best in class” building strategies and practices. The popular Mosaic District has brought new vibrancy to Fairfax County, with its walkability and upscale shopping, dining and entertainment options. We hope Edens and this new site brings the same excitement to this quiet corner of Old Town.
