The United States Patent and Trademark Office is in Alexandria VA not far from the King Street Metro. This section of Alexandria is called “the Carlyle District”.  While Old Town Alexandria is famed for its historic feel and colonial atmosphere, the Carlyle District is anything but historic and vintage.

The Carlyle District is the home to new shops and restaurants, high-rises filled with condos and offices.  Carlyle District has is bustling but does not yet have that crowded and busy feel as the place is so new many of the homes and storefronts are still vacant.  None-the-less there is plenty to see and do right here in Carlyle District.  At the Carlyle Club and the Trademark Bar, you’ll find upscale evening hang-outs. At places like Pizzeria Venti and Potbellies you can can grab a quick bite to eat.  A newly-built Wholefoods grocery store serves the neighborhood.  Of course, the real estate here is at a premium, but there is a price for convenience.  If you’re looking for something a bit cheaper you might consider Huntington or New Alexandria. Both are nearby and both have plenty of choices in housing.
