Developer revives plans for Robinson Terminal North

After years of stalled planning, the Washington Business Journal first reported that Robinson Terminal North redevelopment could be revived.

The Journal reported that a new development concept plan has been filed with the city’s planning department. The plan will include multifamily residential, ground-floor retail and a restaurant, with mixed-use residential buildings straddling N. Union Street.

The Rooney Properties website said the goal is to complete the project by 2025.

Robinson Terminal North was previously used as a warehouse for the Washington Post until 2013, according to Alexandria Living Magazine, and the Washington Business Journal noted that development plans surfaced in 2015, 2017 and 2019 but never moved forward.

Robinson Terminal North was once the site of warehouses before being torn down to make way for RiverRenew work. The northern edge of the property is planned as a promenade with benches and space for programming.

The Journal noted that Robinson Terminal North has long been a thorn in the side of the city’s efforts to make a comprehensive, walkable waterfront.
