Rockville, MD (PRWEB) January 19, 2008
Just two blocks from the new U.S. Patent and Trademark Office headquarters complex in Alexandria, VA, award-winning Trammell Crow Residential (TCR) is developing Alexan Carlyle, a 280-unit rental apartment community. Ground has been broken for the project, and the first units are scheduled to deliver in the third quarter of 2009.
Alexan Carlyle is capitalized at $94 million in a joint venture between TCR and Olayan America Corporation, with construction financing provided by PNC Bank. It will be located on a 2.8-acre parcel located at 800 John Carlyle Street in the prestigious Carlyle neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia.
TCR's latest luxury apartment development in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area will have five stories and a variety of resort-style amenities including a pool, clubhouse, exercise room, billiards room, business center, and more. The single building, designed by Cubellis DCA, incorporates three distinct architectural styles. One portion of the building reflects the classic Federal architecture of nearby Old Town Alexandria; another has art-deco flair; and the third brings to mind airy loft dwellings created from urban warehouses.
Anchored by the two million square foot PTO complex, which was completed in 2005, the 77-acre Carlyle neighborhood is master-planned for a high-density, urban mixed-use center that includes office, retail, and residential development, all within walking distance of Metro. Easy access via Metro, Amtrak, I-495, and Reagan National Airport have made Carlyle a fast-growing live-work destination.
