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 July, 2017. You can also visit this site for new construction opportunities in the rest of the City of Alexandria.
Ellsworth Row (pictured above) is located in the 200 block of Patrick Street in South Old Town, just steps from Misha’s Coffee, shops, and restaurants. A 5 townhome development project, with 4 new units and 1 historic resale, Ellsworth Row offers all of the modern luxuries you’d expect, like large open kitchens, rooftop terraces AND private patio, and beautiful brick veneer exteriors. They all offer four bedrooms and either 3.5 or 4.5 baths, luxury master suites, high ceilings, top of the line finishes, finished basements, as well as two off-street parking spaces. Prices range from $1,330,000-$1,495,000. These homes are near and dear to our hearts as we are the listing agents on this development. As of this update, just one new construction unit remains! The historic renovation home is still underway and slated for late summer/early fall delivery (it can be shown with advance notice).
NEW – 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.
Towns at 1333

Units range in size from 471 to over 2,000 square feet. These loft-style condos will range in price from $350,000 for the one bedroom unit to $700,000 – $1,500,000 for the others. Four of the seven homes offer elevator access. One or two parking spaces are included with each two or three bedroom residence. High quality finishes include quartz counters with a waterfall edge island, 6″ wide-plank hardwood floors, Thermador appliances, cabinets with soft-close drawers and doors, and solar shades on all windows. The two-story penthouses occupy the top two floors of the building, each with a private roof terrace with river views, rough-ins for outdoor kitchens, and gas grills. The Bottling House residences are slated for Summer 2017 delivery.

These 2,250 square foot, four-level units will have three bedrooms and 3.5 baths. Metro riders will love its proximity to the Braddock Road stop (a quarter-mile away) as well as the King Street stop (less than one mile away). The townhomes are scheduled for late Fall 2017 delivery, with prices starting just under $900,000.
Majesty West is located in South Old Town on the corner of Payne and Wilkes. This 22 townhome development is being built in three phases. The first and second phase are complete and the third and final phase is scheduled to start later this month. There are five move-in-ready townhomes currently available. They are listed between $1,149,000 and $1,275,000. 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.

South Old Town’s Wilkes Row is made up of six townhomes. These homes feature four bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and hardwoods throughout. All units have small backyards and the interior units include rooftop terraces! Walkout basement levels include kitchenettes — perfect for an au pair or in-law suite. Wilkes Row end units have detached two car garages, while interior units have two assigned parking spaces. There is only one interior townhome left, priced at $1,495,000.
The Edens Project
530 First Street, currently 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.
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 is targeting late Summer 2017 for initial pre-construction home sales. First available move-ins are projected for early 2019. 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.
