EYA, one of the leading real estate developers in the Washington Metropolitan area, has been especially active in Old Town Alexandria as of late. Twice named American’s Best Builder, the innovative company has built over 4,000 homes in DC Metro since 1992. Known for luxurious townhomes and condominiums, EYA is helping to reshape Old Town, while still remaining faithful to the area’s history and traditions.
Among EYA’s projects is the redevelopment of areas heavily populated with World War II-era apartment housing. The company is working hand-in-hand with the Alexandria Regional Housing Authority (ARHA) which is charged with a diversification process that involves replacing all demolished properties on a one-for-one basis, either relocating affordable housingunits or integrating them in an organic manner with homes for sale that target an upscale demographic.
Among the many success stories is Old Town Commons in the historic Parker-Gray neighborhood. Currently in its final phase, this project entials five blocks of new construction, including 159 luxury townhomes. Also included are 86 market-rate upscale condo apartments, as well as 74 affordable housing rentals, built in the same esthetically pleasing design as higher-priced units. Many of the LEED-certified townhomes have already sold. Including the Alexander and Duncan II models. Still available are the Carlyle I & II, the Buckingham and the Duncan I. Prices for the townhouses start at $796,900.
EYA townhome floorplans usually involve three or four stories, often starting with a ground-level private parking garage and separate recreation room. The next level is most often dedicated to kitchen, living room, dining room and sometimes a den or library, while the third level is comprised of sleeping areas—usually a master suite and two additional bedrooms. The upper level of EYA homes often includes a roof deck, a loft bedroom and additional space for den, office or recreation.
From hardwood floors to fireplaces, oversized windows, custom chef’s kitchens and too many amenities to list, EYA homes have become synonymous with upscale living in the Old Town Alexandria area. It’s not just townhomes, however. The developer has also delivered high-profile multi-family projects, including the Condominiums at Old Town Commons. Coming in a wide variety of individual floor plans, these upscale units offer loft-inspired architecture, Juliet balconies, gunstock oak hardwood flooring, soaring windows and custom kitchens with steel appliances and granite countertops.
Also of note is The Oronoco Waterfront Residences. Located on the Potomac’s west bank, this innovative project transformed the old Sheet Metal Workers Office Building into 60 luxury flat condos with an unusual stacked design from noted architect Shalom Barones. These airy one-story units offer soaring ceilings, massive window walls, patios, balconies or roof decks, and range in size from 1,600 to 3,500 square feet. The Oronoco offers true luxury living with prices starting at over $1 million. For that, you’ll get 5” wide-plank floors, luxuriously long open kitchens with professional-grade bells and whistles, plus accommodating concierge service andmore.
