Located at the west end of Old Town adjacent to the King Street Metro Station, the Carlyle District and Eisenhower community is the contemporary counterpart to Old Town. The Carlyle District is the premier mixed user commercial/residential/retail community in Alexandria and located within walking distance of major employers such as the USPTO and Federal Courthouse. Del Ray and Arlandia attract artisans of all types to live, work, and shop in this colorful block, marked by an internationally recognized music hall. The West End is also home to an eclectic mix of restaurants and boutiques interspersed with fine hotels and additional parking.
While Alexandria is a walkable suburb, it continues to draw high-level professionals with its convenient location just minutes away from Ronald Reagan Airport and as the meeting point for three major interstates – I-95; I-395, and I-495.
