At the heart of the matter are Alexandria’s city planners and preservationists who have worked so long and diligently to keep Old Town true to its roots. The lovely old buildings so synonymous to the landscape are, after all, integral to the area’s continued appeal.

One interesting example of adaptive reuse principles is The Oronoco, a former waterfront office building that was extensively redesigned and converted to modernist flats with million dollar views. Another is the recently completed Robinson Landing, with origins dating back to 19th century warehouses. Today, the prime riverfront site has been redeveloped into luxury condos and townhouses, with an original warehouse incorporated into the ambitious mixed-use project.
