Overlooking the Potomac River in Alexandria, in the Old Town district of northern Virginia, the eight-story Muse condominium has reached its peak and will soon be under roof. Its 73 luxury condominiums at 1201 North Royal Street are expected to be delivered by the end of 2021.

Art lovers will find an inspiring home at Muse, which will include a 5,700 square foot art space for the Alexandria Arts League as well as an open-air ‘art walk’ with seating, lighting and space. exposure. It will all be part of Alexandria’s New Arts District, designed to bring the arts to residents’ doors.
Also at Muse’s Gate is the popular Mount Vernon Trail, which stretches 18 miles along the scenic Potomac River waterfront from downtown Washington to George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate. A planned linear park adjacent to Muse will expand the green space adjacent to the trail.
Along with a new condominium nearby called Venue, Muse is being developed by Carr Companies, a longtime local industry leader. Carr is a family of businesses that dates back to 1962, when the original company was started by visionary Oliver T. Carr, Jr., originally from Washington, DC. In nearly 60 years, Carr has developed over 11 million square feet of office, retail, hotel and residential property.
“With two condominium communities under construction within blocks of each other and several other properties nearby, we continue to seek growth opportunities in the Old Town North Arts District,” said Austin Flajser, President and CEO of Carr Companies. “We see enormous potential in the vibrant urban-suburban setting of the Waterfront District, which has performed exceptionally well during the pandemic and is poised to continue to grow in the years to come. “
Part of the region’s bright future lies in plans to demolish a nearby 72-year-old coal-fired power plant that was dismantled in 2012. As the city government of Alexandria and Pepco move forward in the Environmental Remediation, a Chicago real estate developer acquired the 20-acre and announced plans for a large mixed-use redevelopment. Flajser predicted that the demolition of the existing structures of the plant could begin within a year.
Located just five miles from downtown Washington, DC, Old Town North is a vibrant, walkable neighborhood with an abundance of dining, shopping, and cultural destinations. Muse is located half a mile from the George Washington Memorial Parkway and just one stoplight from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Its location is less than a mile from Virginia Tech’s new innovation campus as well as Amazon’s new HQ2, which is expected to employ more than 20,000 people.
