ALEXANDRIA VA | Carlyle Plaza Two | 108m | 354ft | 34 fl | Pro


In Alexandria, Zell and Hines partner to develop one of region's tallest apartment towers

JM Zell Partners Ltd. and Hines Ltd. will jointly develop the first building within the 6-acre Carlyle Plaza Two, a long-planned four-tower office and residential complex south of Eisenhower Avenue in Alexandria.

And what a building it is. Designed by Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Miami-based Arquitectonica International Corp., the 382-unit apartment project will rise to 34 stories and 354 feet, offering virtually unobstructed views of Mount Vernon, MGM National Harbor and the Washington Monument. It will be among the region’s five tallest residential buildings, rivaling those planned for Rosslyn.

The design features three rectangular blocks of nearly equal height, with the middle block slipped roughly 25 feet to the south to create a cantilever effect. The result of the cantilever are two large outdoor terraces, one on the 16th floor and another on the 26th. There will be a fifth-floor amenity terrace, with pool, as well. The unit breakdown: 5.9 percent studios, 62.2 percent one-bedroom and 31.9 percent two-bedroom.

“They want an iconic building,” Jeffrey Zell, JM Zell president, said of Alexandria. “They now have an iconic building.”

The development site is immediately east of The Alexan apartment building and north of the Alexandria Renew Nutrient Management Facility and multiuse field that opened in October.

Alexandria approved the basic development plan for Carlyle Plaza Two in 2012 — for 631,114 square feet of office in two towers and 632,056 square feet of residential in two more towers. Two years later, after Zell lost the National Science Foundation competition to the nearby Hoffman Town Center, the plan was amended to offer the option of converting 325,000 square feet of the office density to hotel and residential.

Still, nothing happened at Carlyle Plaza Two, as Zell considered a variety of development plans. Then, about six months ago, he found Hines as a partner, and the two are picking up the pace. By the end of 2016, Zell said Thursday, they hope to break ground.

We are floating in space...
