With its ideal waterfront location, the Oronoco is a stunning conversion of the former Sheet Metal Workers Pension Fund building in Old Town Alexandria. Developer EYA worked with design firm Shalom Baranes Associated to adapt the original U-shaped structure into a unique community of just 60 luxury flats. The terraced shape of the building allows optimal unobstructed views of Old Town, the river and its greenbelt trails and park.
The amenities are staggering, including front desk and concierge service, 24-hour security, a heated outdoor pool with bathhouse and kitchen, a children’s playroom, fitness center and yoga studio, bicycle storage room, dog washing station and a business center. The landscaped courtyard, as well as exterior walkways, are heated during winter months. The building is also LEED-certified for green environmental and energy standards. Walkability is an important part of the appeal, with nearby attractions such as Founders Park, the Mount Vernon Trail, Torpedo Factory Art Center and numerous shops, outdoor cafes and restaurants.
Old Town is the historic seat of Alexandria, dating back to 1749. Originally a merchant shipping port, the charming waterfront community has evolved into one of the nation’s most popular destination places. Quaint cobblestone streets and colonial era landmarks merge with modern boutique retailers, waterfront activities and cultural attractions. King Street is world famous for its top restaurants, shops and historic buildings. Old Town’s location is also key, just eight miles from Washington, DC via George Washington Memorial Parkway. Residents at the Oronoco are also walking distance from the Braddock Road Metro, as well as the DC Water Taxi stop. Washington National Airport is three miles north.
