Condos and townhouses in Alexandria VA

Potomac Yard real estate agents.

Nesbitt Realty can help you buy and sell real estate in Potomac Yard.

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.

Proposed metro map for Potomac Yard

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.
