Mill Creek continues to expand our presence in the greater Washington DC metropolitan area with the development of Strata (formerly known as Landmark Gateway), a 360-unit apartment community in Alexandria, Virginia.
Strata is a transit-friendly, mixed-use apartment community situated in Alexandria, Virginia’s west end, providing excellent access to I-395 and I-495 and the greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, including Crystal City, Rosslyn, Ballston and historic Old Town Alexandria. In addition, the community is less than a half-mile from the Van Dorn Metrorail station and Landmark Mall Shopping Center, the largest shopping center in Alexandria. Directly adjacent to the site is the successful Cameron Station, an established master-planned community of more than 2,000 single-family homes and condominiums.
“There continues to be a growing demand for quality rental housing in the greater DC area,” said Sean Caldwell, who is the Mill Creek managing director with oversight of this development. “Landmark Gateway’s ‘inside the beltway’ location provides unparalleled access to key employers, shopping and entertainment districts, as well as an incredible amenities package designed to appeal to today’s renter.”
Strata is scheduled to deliver first move-ins in the summer of 2014. The community will comprise studios, one- and two-bedroom units, including junior one-bedroom floor plan and den options and ranging in size from 509 square feet to 1,132 square feet. In addition, the development provides for 15,000 square feet of retail space.
What's more, Strata will offer a building comprising only upgraded homes. Called Vivant at Strata, these apartment homes will offer upgraded fixtures, quartz counters, custom cabinets, upgraded flooring and other luxurious finishes.
Leasing is expected to begin in April 2014 with first move-ins early summer 2014.
