Parc East Condominium - Alexandria, VA

Tucked into the northwestern corner of Alexandria, Virginia is the Parc East Condominium—one of the most affordable full service luxury buildings in the area. Completed in 1980, this 15-floor high-rise complex was designed in the International style, with hints of the 1980s contemporary movement that was about to begin.

Located at 1225 Martha Custis Drive in the 22302 zip code area, Parc East is just off Glebe Road and a few blocks from the Arlington border. This part of Alexandria is often referred to as the Northridge neighborhood. The building is next to the I-395 making for an extremely convenient commute. At the same time it is also surrounded by mature trees and landscaping, offering a nice green buffer from busy roadways.

There are 283 residences in this mixed-use development, along with seven ground floor commercial units. The one and two bedroom condos for sale have recently listed in a range from the high $100s to the very low $300s, with many units hovering right in-between. Floor plans range in size from 600 to 1178 square feet in size.

Inside, you’ll find bright units with either hardwood or carpet, plus oversized windows and balconies. Most of the kitchens have been updated to some degree since delivery, with many featuring granite counters and high-end appliances. There are also walk-in closets and in some units, delightful nooks that can be used for reading or work areas.

There are plenty of amenities as well, including a huge lobby with a twenty-four hour staffed front desk and concierge service. There is also a fitness center with sauna, tennis and basketball courts, a swimming pool and a picnic area with grills. Another great feature is the footbridge leading to the awesome Village at Shirlington with its shops, restaurants, movies, live theatre and a Harris Teeter!

Also worth mentioning is the nearby Jennie Dean Park and Four Mile Run. Plus, Old Town Alexandria with its wonderful shops and waterfront nightlife is right down the road. For affordability, location and lots of amenities, Parc East is a competitively priced opportunity for home ownership in Washington Metro.
