700 North Washington Street

If you drove past the northwest corner of Wythe and North Washington Streets on or about Labor Day 2016, you would have seen a giant square hole in the ground where the old two-story Travelodge Motel once reigned as the most affordable guest lodging in Old Town (outlined in purple in the aerial view above).  In its place, the owners of the property are constructing a 41,000-square-foot four-story mixed-use building with 30 residential units, over 6,200 square feet of retail at street level (including a restaurant), and one level of below-ground parking.

A City of Alexandria staff report describes the project at 700 North Washington Street as "one large building that will visually appear to be four separate buildings with a range of architectural styles and three- and four-story tall elements. . . .  On Washington Street, the southernmost building will be a three-story Italianate brick building with a prominent first-floor storefront. The center building, the largest element at four-stories and with prominent projecting bays, is designed to look like a late-19th-century apartment building in the late 19th century Richardsonian Romanesque architectural style.  The northernmost element will appear to be a substantial three-story brick townhouse set back from the sidewalk with a raised terrace."

Artist's renderings of the project, created by Russ Orling Architecture, are posted above and below.  At upper right is a view from Wythe Street, immediately below is a view from Washington Street, and botton is the alley view.  The development will be available for occupancy before the end of 2017.
