ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

The “Top Stories” post has to start with an apology and correction for the lead story.

As was noted on Twitter: the top story about a new milkshake bar in Old Town did not have a joke about the 2003 hit song by Kelis “Milkshake.” This was an oversight on the part of the site editors.

The Crazy Mason will, surely, bring all the boys to the yard.

That aside, it was a big week for development in Alexandria. A West End office was recently converted into an apartment tower and a long-awaited affordable housing development in the Braddock neighborhood cleared City Council.

Inova also announced that it hopes for a 250-foot height allowance for the upcoming hospital project at Landmark.

The most-read stories this week were:

  1. New milkshake bar coming to Old Town this summer
  2. Car meetups are happening at night in parking lots in Arlandria and Potomac Yard
  3. JUST IN: Alexandria man arrested after alleged carjacking of DASH bus in the West End
  4. High-rise West End office building converted into 212-unit apartment tower
  5. No arrests after shots fired near Alexandria Commons Shopping Center Thursday night
