Imagine waking up to sunlight streaming through your floor-to-ceiling windows. You begin the day with a leisurely breakfast and morning coffee on your waterfront balcony or private rooftop terrace. Then take a stroll through the quaint Old Town streets or get in your early workout at the state-of-the-art fitness center overlooking the Potomac River. Meet friends in the evening at the outdoor restaurant on the pier or one of the many Old Town acclaimed eateries just steps away. This is life at Robinson Landing.
Mark your calendar to celebrate the beginning of a new era for the Old Town waterfront. On Saturday, November 4th, we will introduce Robinson Landing—distinctive waterfront residences ideally situated in the heart of Old Town Alexandria.

Big things are happening on the Old Town waterfront in Alexandria. Earlier this week, Hotel Indigo – an Intercontinental Hotel Group brand – opened at 220 South Union Street, next to where EYA is building Robinson Landing. And there’s a lot to like about this 120-room boutique property’s design.
The New York Times interviewed EYA’s president, Bob Youngentob, as part of their showcase of the upcoming redevelopment along the Old Town Alexandria waterfront. Until recently, a prime section of the waterfront has been home to a group of industrial warehouses and underutilized by residents and visitors. As part of a larger City plan to revitalize the waterfront, EYA is transforming three acres bordered by Duke, Union, and Wolfe Streets to help enhance access to and enjoyment of the waterfront.
