About this Event

According to Frank Fannon, Agenda Alexandria Board member and moderator for this program "Old Town North has been witnessing metamorphic change, evolving before our eyes over the last two decades. Residential and mixed-use developments including rental apartments, townhouses, condos and retail uses scattered throughout." Among notable additions - the Harris Teeter at The Kingsley, the Gables Old Town North with apartments, restaurants and retail built on the old Giant/ABC Store site and the redevelopment of the abandoned Bus Barn site is underway.

Fannon further stated "Developers are beginning to utilize the Arts District Designation of the Old Town North Small Area Plan - accommodating MetroStage with the Carr Company condo conversion of the Crowne Plaza Hotel and construction of The Muse at 1201 North Royal Street which will have an Art League component."

Hilco Redevelopment Partners, the new owners of the shuttered GenOn power plant site have recently submitted an application to the Planning Commission with a proposal to subdivide this 25-acre parcel.

According to Fannon "all will be discussed in-depth on this program. Join Agenda Alexandria’s panel of experts in a discussion of this incredible transformational change."
