Alexandria West evolved from sleepy farmland during colonial times into a thriving, close-in suburban community of detached homes, townhouses, and condominiums today. Tucked inside the Beltway and just north and west of I-95, the busiest north-south commuter corridor into Washington, DC, the Alexandria West community is a commuter’s dream. There’s easy access to DC, the Pentagon, Crystal City and the new Corps of Engineers headquarters at Mark Center.
Quality of Life:
Alexandria West has many amenities to offer its residents including two county parks, a public golf course, and three shopping centers. The most notable of the parks is Green Spring Garden Park, which boasts an 18th century manor house, a tropical greenhouse, a wooded stream valley, and over twenty demonstration gardens. The newly remodeled Plaza at Landmark Shopping Center is your one-stop place where you can get groceries, shop for clothes, go to the gym, have a massage, and go out for a meal.
Alexandria West offers quick and easy access to I-95 and the Capital Beltway, and a well-developed network of secondary roads. There are express bus routes to DC and the Pentagon nearby, and the closest metro stops can be found at the Franconia/Springfield, Van Dorn and Eisenhower Avenue stations.
