Sale of Royal Street Bus Garage Approved

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority Board (WMATA) recently approved for future sale the Royal Street bus barn located between Royal Street and North Pitt Street in Old Town.

The obsolete Alexandria facility will be replaced by a new WMATA bus garage located in Fairfax County.  WMATA plans to issue a solicitation in the fall of 2013 for sale of the Royal Street site upon groundbreaking of the new Fairfax bus garage.

“This has been a long time coming, with the City working hard to get this bus facility moved, so it is exciting news for Alexandria,” said Mayor William D. Euille, who is a member of the WMATA Board. “The planned future sale will give the City the ability to encourage development that is appropriate for the neighborhood and that will improve our quality of life and benefit our residents.”

The site is located on the block bordered by Pendleton, North Pitt, Wythe and North Royal Streets, and is currently zoned for townhouse use. The community will have opportunity to provide public input to the redevelopment of the bus barn site through the City’s established development review process, which will culminate in a set of City Planning Commission and City Council land use discussions.
