The Potomac Yard arena isn’t the only major development in consideration north of Old Town.

The Old Town North Alliance is hosting a meeting Thursday night to discuss plans for Robinson Terminal North (500 and 501 N. Union Street)– the last piece of the city’s dream of a fully walkable waterfront.

The plan is to create two buildings on either side of N. Union Street and a smaller, circular building at the east end of the site near the water. The development would feature multifamily residential units with ground-floor retail and a restaurant.

The application said the portions of the property along the waterfront will have public access with a naturalized shoreline and native planting, though some of the designs also include a pier where a ship can moor.

According to a release from the Old Town North Alliance:

RTN West LLC and RTN East LLC, developers of the property at 500 & 501 N Union Street known as Robinson Terminal, would like to extend an invitation for a virtual community meeting regarding its re-development. The developers recently submitted concept plans with the City of Alexandria and would like to share that plan with you!

The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 29, at 7 p.m. It can be attended virtually (Webinar ID 812 0043 6585) or by phone (1 301 715-8592).
