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.[more about Carlyle District]
