Old Town Alexandria VA

Introduction to Old Town Alexandria VA

Colonial Charm in an Upscale Neighborhood

Old Town Alexandria is in the City of Alexandria in Northern Virginia near Washington DC. Old Town is the oldest part of Alexandria and dates back to the days when Alexandria was a colonial seaport. Alexandria was George Washington’s hometown. The city’s roster of historic sites underlines how historically influential it has been. Thomas Jefferson entertained at Gadsby’s Tavern; Robert E. Lee worshiped at Christ Church.

Flags of Virginia and Alexandria

The flag of the Commonwealth of Virginia and City of Alexandria fly side by side on Union Street in Old Town Alexandria VA.

The Old Town district includes more than 4,000 historic buildings, outstanding examples of early American architecture that now house small businesses and gracious homes, all waiting to give you a modern welcome.

Old Town is characterized by brick sidewalks that line historic structures. Elegant modern structures are carefully planned to fit with the feel of Old Town.

Evening in Old Town

Throughout the year Old Town Alexandria remains a popular night-spot for locals and tourists alike. Old Town has a unique vibe though. You won’t find frat-style keg parties, or sweaty after-hours discotheques in Old Town. The evening starts with families and tourists and the dancers and drinkers show up late. The atmosphere is subtly more upscale than other nightspots in the DC area. The partiers are laid-back and approachable but well-dressed with impeccable behavior.

Carlyle

The Carlyle District

birds-eye view of the Carlyle District

A broad avenue in the Carlyle District

The Carlyle District shares the 22314 zip code with Old Town Alexandria. The Carlyle District is anything but “old”. The Carlyle District is home to more than 2 million square feet of office space (existing or under construction) for the USPTO alone.

Bringing 7,000 employees and 700 visitors a day to the site, the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office is single-handedly driving enough demand to fuel the creation of an office submarket in Alexandria. The 76.5-acre master-planned Carlyle development is designated a Coordinated Design/Development District (CDD), meaning design and development standards are already in place for the allocated 7 million square feet of office, hotel, residential, and retail space, allowing for faster approval of final plans.

Carlyle is within walking distance of the King Street Metro station and the Amtrak/Virginia Railway Express station, and is one of Northern Virginia’s most convenient and accessible business locations.
