Potomac Yard located in the National Capital Area at Alexandria VA was once one of the busiest rail yards on the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. Today, the name Potomac Yard refers to:

  • a shopping center located at the site of the former train yard along Jefferson Davis Highway (also known as US Route 1);
  • the neighborhood adjoining Potomac Yard Shopping Center; or,
  • the proposed metro stop on the Yellow and Blue Lines at Potomac Yard.

The Potomac Yard neighborhood lies between Route 1 and the George Washington Parkway north of Slaters Lane and south of a small body of water known as Four Mile Run. Four Mile Run marks the boundary between the City of Alexandria and Arlington County and thus Potomac Yard lies entirely within Alexandria.

Potomac Yard Shopping Center occupies 70 acres of what was 400-acres of Potomac Yard train depot. The Yellow and Blue Metro rails travel north and south here running along GW Parkway. The Potomac Yard neighborhood includes numerous newly built and to-be-built townhomes just north of Slaters Lane and south of the Potomac Yard Retail Center.

In this site we also provide information about Potomac Greens and Old Potomac Greens which is a very similar community that was recently built along the same stretch of metro rail. Potomac Greens lies just to the east of the metro rail between the train lines and the GW Parkway. The neighborhood is bounded to the south by Old Town Crescent, another enclave of newly built townhomes.

Potomac Yard is just north of Old Town near the Potomac Yard Shopping Center. These are newly-built or soon-to-be built townhouses. If you're considering a home here, you might compare these to the homes of Old Town Crescent, Old Town Green or Potomac Greens. The on-site builder's agents work for the builder, but we work for home buyers.

Schools serving the community are: Jefferson-Houston Elementary School, George Washington Middle School and T.C. Williams High School.

Potomac Yard Metro Stop is scheduled to open in 2016. Construction is scheduled to start in 2014. When completed Potomac Yard will be an outdoor platform-style metro stop on the Blue and Yellow Lines. Upon its completion, Potomac Yard will be only the second infill station to be added to the Washington Metro system. Plans to construct a Washington Metro station between the Braddock Road and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport stations on the Blue and Yellow Lines have been proposed since the late 1990s with the construction of the Potomac Yard Shopping Center.

  • More about selling your property

    Are you considering putting your house up for sale, but not sure where to start? Afraid it will take too long to sell, or that you won’t get the price you want? Here are 4 tips to get you started:

    1. De-clutter. This is one of the most important things you can do. It might be easier to think of de-cluttering like this – you’re moving anyway, so why not start packing now?

    Pack up everything you don’t need and store the boxes out of sight in the garage (or consider temporarily renting a small storage locker).

    2. Organize your closets – put similar colors together, pants together, skirts together, shirts together etc. Why? Because it will make the closets look bigger. (Really.) An organized closet appears bigger, and you want your closets to look as spacious as possible.

    3. Make your home look like a model. You want to de-personalize as much as possible so potential buyers can imagine themselves and their own belongings occupying the space in your house. That means minimizing – putting away everything you don’t need or use. Clear off kitchen counters as much as possible – stash all those appliances you don’t use, and put miscellaneous small clutter in a few attractive baskets or boxes.

    4. Call Nesbitt Realty at (703)765-0300.  We can give you objective tips on what you can do to move your property.  We even have options for professionally staging your home if you’re interested. [learn more]
