Thirty-seven companies competed for one of three Gold, Silver, and Bronze prizes, almost double from last year!

The Potomac Yard Metrorail Station project reached its next milestone, as City of Alexandria staff issued a report recommending Alternative B as the best location for the new station. Alternative B was recommended as the station location would allow for the creation of a transit-oriented, mixed-use community in North Potomac Yard with vital transportation and economic benefits for the City. The report, along with the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) published on March 27, will be the subject of eight public meetings and hearings prior to City Council’s consideration on May 20.
