What We Love
Old Town Commons (OTC) is a newly constructed neighborhood in the historic north end of Old Town Alexandria,Virginia, a close-in suburb of Washington, D.C. A public/private partnership between leading developer EYA and the Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority (ARHA) transformed an under-performing public housing site in Alexandria, into Old Town Commons, a vibrant, urban, pedestrian-friendly, and transit-oriented development.
OTC is located in the historic Parker-Gray area of Alexandria. The district has a rich heritage as part of Alexandria’s African American community. After the Civil War, when its neighborhoods became a haven for former slaves, the African American population was close to 90 percent. By the 1950s, racial segregation in housing and black-owned business in other parts of the region solidified the identity of the district, known then as Uptown, as a vibrant center of African American life.
The award-winning new construction managed to double the former housing density using a combination of taller multifamily buildings and three- and four-story townhomes that blend seamlessly with other Old Town rowhouses. The affordable rental units are designed to be indistinguishable from their market-rate owner-occupied units and all units are built and certified to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and EarthCraft green building standards, which helps reduce energy costs for residents.
There are 231 market-rate townhouses and condominium units, nestled a short walk from the famous King Street, the Braddock Road metro station, and the Potomac River. Old Town Commons has also stimulated new investment in the neighborhood, with additional new residential development, retail shops, restaurants, and a new national grocery store.
The Old Town Commons Homeowners Association, along with Theoharis, the development's management company, works closely with homeowners and residents to ensure a high quality of life and preservation of property values. We're glad that you're part of the neighborhood and look forward to welcoming you personally into the community!
Stroll along cobblestone streets, spend time exploring historic landmarks, and shop at hundreds of local shops and eateries, all in idyllic Old Town Alexandria. Everything from the neighborly residents to the charming Old Town Alexandria real estate will have you wanting to call this community home.
One of the most unique neighborhoods in America, Old Town real estate is full of history. The community is home to more than 4,200 historic buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries, with sea ports on the Potomac River that were regularly used during the colonial and revolutionary periods. You can easily see history’s impact on the area in everything from Old Town’s real estate to the small-town feeling that it still holds today.
Old Town real estate includes some of the most charming architecture and properties in the area, with regulations in place to keep it that way. Townhouses on cobblestone streets, row houses with brick sidewalks, and some new modern constructions create a wonderful blend of historic charm and modern convenience.
Old Town has over 100 locally owned shops, most of them a part of the local Boutique District. In these shops, you can really get to know the shop-owners and support the local community. Relaxing restaurants, independent coffee shops, and wine bars provide the perfect backdrop for a night out, with plentiful art galleries, theatres, and parks around to explore. You can jump on a boat to get to Nationals Park for a baseball game, or to Georgetown or National Harbor for even more shopping or dining.
With a quaint small town atmosphere and the flair of city living, this waterfront town is the perfect place for residents of all ages and lifestyles. Just minutes from downtown Washington, DC, close to a major airport, and central transportation running throughout the area, it’s easy to enjoy everything Old Town has to offer. It’s very walkable, so we recommend strolling along the cobblestone streets to get a true feel for the neighborhood.
Don’t miss out on the Saturday Farmers’ Market at Market Square, where you can pick up fresh produce and local products. What’s even better is seeing the familiar vendors and friendly faces week after week, adding even more of a small-town feel to this sweet community. Fun fact: this market is the longest running one in the USA; even George Washington used to sell products there! You’ll also want to stop by Brut for a glass of wine or Champagne. It’s a true neighborhood treasure!
