More than 2,100 National Science Foundation employees will be relocating from Ballston to the Eisenhower Valley in Alexandria in 2017. This will be one of the largest transfers of federal workers in Northern Virginia since the PTO left Crystal City for Alexandria 7 years ago.
And this is very good news for homeowners – or those considering a purchase – in Townes at Cameron Parke, which is just down the street from where the new NSF building will be located, in Hoffman Town Center, a 56-acre development just inside the Capital Beltway.
To be built on parking lots next to the AMC Hoffman Center 22-screen cineplex, across the street from the Eisenhower Avenue Metro Station, the developer plans 7 million square feet of retail, hotel rooms, apartments and offices.
To say this will change the face of the Eisenhower Valley is an understatement.
So, if you are thinking of buying an Alexandria townhouse, consider Townes at Cameron Parke; it’s convenient location between two Metro stations, with the DASH bus in front of the community and easy access to 495, is already attracting residents who are looking for a spacious home with garage and excellent commuter options.
From 2 to 4 bedroom townhomes, with 1 or 2 car garages, priced from the $400s to the high $500s, there should be a size and layout that fits your needs.
Townes at Cameron Parke is located approximately a mile and a half from the Eisenhower Avenue Metro station and just a couple of miles from Old Town Alexandria, the charming 18th century riverfront town with its doggy bakeries, renowned and innovative restaurants, boutiques and historic homes. If you’d prefer to leave your car in the garage, you can reach Old Town by DASH bus or you can get there by bike and hook up with the Mount Vernon Bike Trail, which is a huge favorite of area cyclists, with its wonderful views of the Potomac River and DC monuments.
