More About The Oronoco, Alexandria, va

Founded in 1749, Old Town is the historical seat of the independent City of Alexandria. Positioned at the edge of Oronoco Bay Park and a stone’s throw from the river, The Oronoco has its own unique story to tell. The waterfront site was originally home to the Sheet Metal Workers Pension Fund building, and was completely redeveloped by EYA, gutting the structure to its core structural elements, and then rebuilding with a new cubist design from Shalom Baranes Associates, eschewing the old aluminum façade for a brick exterior. Step inside, and the transformation becomes complete with open space modernist designs, including giant windows, wide-plank hardwood floors, and stunning gourmet kitchens. Each unit has its own sizeable private terrace, perfect for relaxing or enjoying meals.

The Oronoco’s luxury lifestyle starts with the residences themselves, all single-level with high ceilings and clean, open designs. Layouts range from approximately 1,600 to 3,500 square feet, with either two or three bedrooms. Family rooms and/or dens add flexibility, especially for those needing work-from-home spaces. Full-height built-ins, sound-proof windows, wide see-through fireplaces, and Waterworks baths are all nice touches, as are the open Euro-style gourmet kitchens with quartz counters and top-line Wolfe, Bosch, and Sub-Zero appliances.

The building amenities are also very impressive, with a huge, two-story lobby that is fully staffed including concierge service and security. There’s a swanky heated pool, a well-appointed fitness center, yoga studio, a club house, meeting rooms, a kids playroom, outdoor kitchen, parking, extra storage, and a dog washing station. The popular Mount Vernon Trail runs right past the complex, and the lovely Oronoco Bay Park is all that stands between the condos and the Potomac River. It all adds up to a complete package of luxury and sophistication, with unbeatable views and a superb waterfront location.

Old Town Alexandria is one of the nation’s premiere destination places and it’s often the first stop for newcomers to Washington who are shopping for a home. The neighborhood is well known for its top restaurants, boutique shops, art galleries, museums, and entertainment. King Street may be Old Town’s shopping mecca, but the entire area is ripe for exploration. Walking tours often wind through the Alexandria Historical District, along quaint cobblestone alleys, past famous landmarks and beautiful old homes, and of course, along the river where tobacco warehouses and mercantile shops once stood.
