The City of Alexandria, Virginia, is located on the Potomac River, just six miles from Washington, DC. With its population nearing 140,000, this desirable community contains many distinctive neighborhoods. While Alexandria’s largely built environment makes new development and/or redevelopment both challenging and expensive, the city’s unique character and its proximity to federal government, defense, technology and contracting jobs continue to make it one of the hottest real estate markets.
