New development plans submitted to the City of Alexandria show a mixed arts-retail district that could be an integral part of designs to reshape Old Town North.
The new 349,000 square-foot Montgomery Center development fills the block from N. Royal Street to N. Fairfax Street and Madison Street to Montgomery Street, sandwiched between the one-acre Alexandria House Park and 2.4-acre Montgomery Park.
Developer Carr Companies submitted the plans for the redevelopment of Montgomery Center, drawn up by Cooper Carry, to the Urban Design Advisory Committee for Old Town North.
The development plans show two mostly-residential mixed-use buildings featuring retail and a 13,460 square foot arts venue. The core of the development will be split with a T-shape courtyard connecting the retail and arts center spaces. The project is planned to include 331 residential units.
The site will also include an event area with renderings of ice skating shown as a potential concept for the space.
The plans also show underground parking at the site.
A presentation of the development plan is available online.
