The new Potomac Yard neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia has been seeing rapid urbanization thanks in part to its high walkability quotient and transportation-friendly convenience. Route 1, the George Washington Memorial Parkway, 4 Mile Run and Braddock Road bound the neighborhood. Potomac Yard condos, and executive and estate townhomes display upscale urban living with an easy 10-minute Metro ride to DC. The 3-4 bedroom residences offer 2.5-4.5 bathrooms and range in size from 1,736-4,300 square feet.
The Pulte Homes traditionally-styled townhome condos start from $619,990, and enjoy 1,736-2,800+ square feet of living space and 3 BR/2.5 BA. Each residence includes an attached 1-car garage, 2 levels and a balcony. The executive townhomes feature 3 BR/2.5-4.5 BA and 2,500-3,586 square feet. Each home has a 2-car garage, 4 levels of living and a rooftop terrace. The estate townhomes feature 3-4 BR/3.5-4.5 BA and 2,981-4,300 square feet. Highlights include a 4-level extension, dual recreation rooms and an owner’s suite on a private level. Bay windows and brick facades make up the beautiful exterior appointments.
In its heyday, Potomac Yard was formerly one of the busiest rail yards on the East Coast processing thousands of cars per day. Potomac Yard’s main public park opened at the end of 2013 with a water fountain, playgrounds and sports fields on 24 acres. Bus Rapid Transit from Crystal City to Potomac Yard travels in dedicated lanes along Route 1. A Metro Station is set to open in 2018. The site also houses the Potomac Yard Retail Center shopping mall.
