Robinson Landing is a luxury condominium project located in Old Town Alexandria, VA. This mixed-use renewal project was designed to breathe new life into the two-acre, multi-parcel site by incorporating three key elements: 26 four-story townhomes, three, five-story multi-family buildings and 10,000 SF of restaurant and commercial space. Additional design features included an extension of neighboring streets for better vehicle access, improved pedestrian access to the large-scale promenade, waterfront and pier and features that tie it to the city’s storm water management plan. All of these things work to create an environmentally conscious area where people can live, work and recreate, blending a contemporary design with the industrial character of the historic riverfront.
