      overlooking Four Mile Run

      This aerial picture shows older development, new development, high-rises and garden-styles all in close proximity to Four Mile Run. Four Mile Run separates Alexandria from Arlington and is the defining geographic feature of Arlandria.

      Arlandria straddles the border between Arlington and Alexandria VA.

      Much of Arlandria was developed between 1940 and 1980, although some homes and structures are newer or older than this. This area was originally a neighborhood who residents worked in the industrial areas near Potomac Yards train center and nearby industries in Old Town and Crystal City.

      • More about Arlandria

        Over the years, the economy of the National Capital Region changed and most of the heavy and even most of the light industrial companies moved elsewhere. What remained became commercial centers, both retail and office, and the Arlandria neighborhood has changed as well.

        Where residents in the old days might have turned wrenches at the Torpedo Factory or managed boxcar traffic at Potomac Yards, today's residents are much more likely to be technology consultants or legislative aids. The sturdy old brick duplexes and garden-style condos are still here, but most of these homes have had significant updates, improvements and renovations. In addition, in-fill development, knock-downs and new condos have filled out most of the remaining real estate in Arlandria.

        Arlandia is just north of Del Ray at terminus of Mount Vernon Avenue. Some residents also call this neighborhood Chirilagua. Arlandia has many small shops and restaurants.
