“I’m almost speechless in terms of thinking about how to describe just the care and love that people show for our community,” ACT for Alexandria CEO Heather Peeler told ALXnow.
While Old Town can seem a little static at times, there were at least two major announcements this week for changes along King Street — one office building being converted to residential use and another being purchased for $12 million with future upgrades being planned.
