Development started early this year at the Muse luxury condo complex at the former home of MetroStage in Old Town North. While the 210,000 square foot property won’t open until the fourth quarter of 2021, units will be available for sale this fall, according to property owner The Carr Companies.
The site, which was designed by architect SK+I, is the former home to the MetroStage theater, which is moving to another Carr property in development, Venue, at 901 N. Fairfax Street. The Old Town North property is bordered by Third Street, North Royal Street and part of the Mount Vernon Trail along the Potomac River. The Washington Business Journal recently reported that the units will start at $800,000.
The theater and an industrial building will be demolished to make way for a 73-unit residential tower and “secondary structure” connected by an enclosed bridge that will house The Art League, as well as 5,000 square feet devoted to an “arts and cultural anchor fronting N. Royal and Third streets, which will support the Old Town North Arts and Cultural District,” according to a 2019 city staff report.
“The arts and cultural anchor space will be reserved for The Art League or other organizations that will program the space with community activities and events related to ‘visual or performing arts and cultural works,’ per Section 6-900 of the Zoning Ordinance, for a minimum of 30 years,” according to a city staff report.
Amenities include 24-hour concierge service, an indoor fitness center, a lounge and library. There will also be two levels of underground parking, according to Carr Cos.
Carr Cos. is no stranger to Alexandria and has developed a number of hotels in the city, including the Hotel Indigo (220 S. Union Street), the Hilton Garden Inn (1620 Prince Street) and the Embassy Suites (1900 Diagonal Road).
