Carr proposes the demolition of an office building to build multi-family residences
According to plans filed with the City of Alexandria, Carr is looking to redevelop its office building at 901 N. Pitt St. into a multi-family residential building with an art and retail component.
The 1.36 acre site currently houses an office building named âWaterman Place,â which will be demolished if plans are approved. In its place, Carr proposes to build a 102-foot multi-family building that contains 250 units with 260 parking spaces in an underground garage. The building would also contain a 6,500 square foot art component and 3,075 retail space.
The site is located between Montgomery Park and the Gables Old Town North apartment building which contains a number of retail businesses and restaurants on the ground floor.
901 N. Pitt St. wouldn’t be Carr’s only project in the Old Town North neighborhood. The company is currently redeveloping the old Crowne Plaza hotel into a 13-story, 122-unit residential condominium tower and 41 townhouses as well as a new home for the MetroStage theater.
Carr is also transforming the former MetroStage building located at 1201 N. Royal St. into a luxury arts-oriented condo complex called The Muse.
