New Apartment Development Breaks Ground in Historic Paker Gray Neighborhood

A large new development has broken ground in Alexandria’s historic Parker Gray neighborhood.  Located on one full city block directly behind the U.S. Post Office on Wythe St. and Fayette , the former warehouse complex is now a busy construction site.

Wythe Construction 2

Originally designed as town house style condominiums, current plans call for rental apartments – a smart move given the glut of condominiums here in Alexandria.

The development will consist of two buildings, one to resemble town houses while the other will be a multi-level mid-rise structure, both with underground parking.  Plans also call for some retail shops to front Fayette Street.

The great appeal of this location will be the Braddock Metro Station to the west, the Charles Houston Recreation Center and Trader Joe’s to the east and the comfortable proximity to both Old Town and Del Ray.

We’re still looking for the official name and more details on this development so be sure and check back in with us as the weeks roll on.
