Carlyle Towers Condos For Sale, Alexandria, VA

In a city so known for historic buildings, Carlyle Towers represents something very different—gleaming glass and steel construction. The three-tower complex is aptly named, situated in the heart of the Carlyle District, a 76.5 acre development on the western edge of Old Town Alexandria. This is a new residential and business district off Duke Street. It evolved out of the area known as Eisenhower East.

The Carlyle District is essentially a self-sustaining community operating on the “live, work and play” principle that has become so popular in urban culture. In addition to condos there’s also hotels, and lots of office space as well. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Offices are here as is the National Science Foundation, the National Investors Hall of Fame and Museum and a large plaza and open lawn where outdoor musical events happen.

There’s also a staggering number of communal amenities—two fitness centers, an indoor pool, outdoor pool, kiddie’s pool and even a swim-in-place “aquacise pool.” You can also add Jacuzzi, hot tubs, tennis courts, rooftop deck, concierge service, library, courtyards, underground parking and even a putting green!

List prices have recently ranged from the $300s to high $600s, although rates are sure to climb. The pet-friendly complex is also close to the Dog Run Park at Carlyle. 

More About the Carlyle District in Alexandria

As mentioned previously, the Carlyle District morphed out of the Eisenhower East community—specifically through the 2003 Eisenhower East Small Area Plan (SAP) and its various updates, including the 2006 and 2019 Eisenhower East SAP. In a nutshell, Alexandria planners envisioned a new urban mixed-use community that would center around the Eisenhower Avenue Metro Station. The area now known as the Carlyle District expanded at such a pace, that it ultimately took on its own identity.

The transit-oriented “city within a city” as some have called it, is continuing its development process. One of the challenges is maximizing the available space while still promoting a symbiotic relationship between commercial construction and natural spaces and parks. So far, it seems to be working. The Carlyle District, or for that matter, Eisenhower East, has plenty to offer in an intriguing urban environment.

How about local amenities? When it comes to coffee, there’s multiple Starbucks, a Dunkin’ Donuts, Allegro Coffee and June Coffee. Or, you could add some carbs to your caffeine at Einstein Brothers Bagels or Panera Bread. For groceries there’s a Whole Foods, as well as the Uptown Market & Deli and a delightful farmers market. Other lunch and dining options include Potbelly Sandwich Shop, Quattro Formaggi, Delia’s Alexandria, Mediterranean Grill & Brick Oven Pizza, Paisano’s, Foster’s Grille, San Antonio Bar & Grill and Ted’s Montana Grill, the Capital Grille, Trademark East & Drink, Sumo Hibachi & Sushi, Pasara Thai, Tequila & Taco, Sweet Fire Donna’s and Old Town Café. Whew!
