Located at 300 South Union Street, Alexandria, VA 22314
Robinson Landing is the much talked about redevelopment of the old Robinson Terminal South warehouses in Old Town Alexandria, now being transformed into luxury waterfront flats, townhomes, dining and retail.

Robinson Landing | Luxury Condos and Elevator Townhomes for Sale
Robinson Landing features three condominium buildings with a total of 70 luxury condo flats for sale, as well as 26 high-end townhomes. Fronting the Potomac River, the condo buildings offer a sleek glass, steel and brick linearism. The four-story townhome buildings present a more traditional brick appearance in keeping with Old Town’s history, while also featuring stylish modern interiors with open floorplans, floor-to-ceiling windows and upscale amenities.
Floorplans for the flats range from one bedroom plus den to three bedrooms plus den. Many units have stunning views of the promenade and river. Townhomes come in four models with three to five bedrooms, private elevators and spectacular rooftop decks. Prices for condos and townhouses will begin around $1.5 million and climb as high as $5.5 million.
Robinson Terminal consisted of two sites, North and South. These massive waterfront warehouse complexes have significant history—brick buildings at Terminal South dated as far back as the mid-1700s. The one remaining building, constructed in the 1800s, has been incorporated into the new development. Meanwhile, Terminal North—north of the ultra-modern Oronoco Flats—continues with its planning process.
Robinsons Landing is an EYA development. The residences are fronted by the new promenade, as well as a reconstructed wharf and boat slips. It’s the ultimate place to stroll and enjoy Old Town Alexandria’s legendary riverfront. The interiors feature wide-plank oak hardwood floors, quartz counters, Thermador appliances and spa-inspired baths. Common amenities include 24/7 staff, concierge, fitness center, yoga studio, lounge and even a pet grooming spa.
Luxury Old Town Waterfront Living
Robinson Landing occupies one of Old Town’s most desirable stretches of waterfront property. There’s good reason for all the hoops the developers had to jump through in order to build here—the site is on the old Point Lumley, a landing for deep water ships that predates Alexandria’s official founding. When archeologists examined the land, they discovered the remains of three 18th century ships as well as the foundation for the old Hooe Warehouse, also from the 1700s.
The City of Alexandria required many assurances and accommodations from EYA before construction commenced. Those lucky to live at one of Alexandria’s birthplaces are steps from the public promenade that stretches along the Potomac, as well as the new docks and boat slips. Upscale restaurants will be part of Robinson’s landing, along with boutique retailers and an outdoor café on the pier. Waterfront Park is at the northern end of the development, and the Old Dominion Yacht Club is just a block away.
Robinson Landing is at the foot of Duke Street at Union Street and two blocks from King Street. That means that Alexandria’s best restaurants at close at hand. It starts with waterfront dining at places like Chadwick’s, Charthouse, Vola’s Dockside Grill and Hi-Tide Lounge, Virtue Feed & Grain, and of course, the new chef-driven fare from Robinson Landings own restaurants. And, once you start venturing west, you’ll discover scores of other eateries, including the many famous hotspots along King Street.
It’s not just about the food and drink, of course. Old Town Alexandria is known for its shops, galleries, museums and entertainment. Wandering along the cobblestone streets reveals a multitude of delights. Whether you want to go sailing, kayaking, exhibit gazing at the Torpedo Factory Art Center or simply relaxing at the end of the day with a drink by the river, this is a great place to be.
Also, when it comes to mundane matters such as grocery shopping, there’s a Whole Foods on Duke Street and a Trader Joe’s on St. Asaph. Bonus points go to the original Old Town Farmers Market on King Street just a few blocks away—open since 1753!
