The Towngate office complex in North Old Town (625 and 635 Slaters Lane) are requesting permits from the City of Alexandria to facilitate changing the office buildings into a residential building.
Most of the changes will take place inside the building, but the property is scheduled to go to the Board of Architectural Review on June 17 over a handful of exterior changes, like new doors, windows and siding.
“The applicant requests a permit to demolish and certificate of appropriateness for improvements… in order to convert the buildings from office to residential,” Brookfield Towngate LLC said in a statement. “No additions or increases in floor area are requested.”
Designs put together by Heffner Architects, PC, a local architecture firm in Alexandria, show the large open office spaces replaced with smaller individual units.
There is no information in the application yet about how many units will be included in the final building, or whether these will be town houses or apartments.
