Robinson Landing: The Inside Scoop
Old Town Alexandria is abuzz with the launch of its hottest new construction development, Robinson Landing. Local developer EYA is behind the project, which will consist of 71 new homes, representing a mix of condo and townhouse style residences. The Goodhart Group has the inside scoop!
This former industrial site is becoming a vibrant community with a traditional and modern design blend featuring brick, steel and glass to complement the historic Old Town setting. The Robinson Landing site will also feature new dining, shopping, and green space along a new promenade and revitalized pier.
At this point, we know 10,000 square feet of retail space is planned between several of the buildings. Underneath Building 1, there will be a waterfront restaurant, while Building 2 will have a coffee shop and juice bar. Two spaces that are already existing will be rehabbed and put to new use. If you look at the diagram below, the existing historic brick building on Duke Street just to the west of Building 1 will be retail space. Even more exciting, the existing pier will be transformed into a waterfront cafe and bar on the north end, with a public space that the public can enjoy or rent out for functions on the south end.
The first condo deliveries are expected in 2018 with completion by the end of 2019. Sales opened November 4, 2017, and as of November 11, reservations on Robinson Landing homes are available on a first come, first serve basis (with a 10% deposit).
Amenities abound at Robinson Landing. In addition to on-site dining and shopping, the buildings will offer concierge service, a fitness center, yoga studio, bicycle shop, pet grooming spa, and a residents’ lounge. There will be 24-hour onsite staff.
One feature we love in the condo buildings (shown in white in the site plan above) are the short hallways and privacy that they afford residents. Each elevator bank is semi-private and will serve only three or four units. Additionally, floorplans run from the water to the street so all units will have some water and city views, enhanced by floor to ceiling windows.
Each condo will have one or two garage parking spaces (one bedroom units come with one spot). Additionally, condos come with secure storage and a separate space for bicycles. Outdoor terraces, finished with porcelain pavers, are another feature to love.
Interior features include modern kitchens with premium appliances (with integrated panels), frameless European-style cabinetry, and quartz countertops with island waterfall design. Living areas feature wide-plank hardwood floors and fireplaces as available. Owner’s bathrooms are finished with quartz countertops, European-inspired floating vanities, LED-lit mirror cabinets, and porcelain tile. Freestanding soaking tubs are available per plan.
Here is the breakdown for how many of each type condominium building is planned:
1 BR w/ den – 2 residences
2 BR – 13 residences
2 BR w/ den – 6 residences
