Alexandria’s Old Town district is one of the three oldest in the nation, and its Waterfront was an active port. The recently adopted Waterfront plan adds 160,000 square feet of commercial development to the 1992 master plan for Alexandria’s Waterfront. Future development will focus on targeted sites along the Waterfront designed to enhance and protect parks and public spaces. Overall, the plan adds nearly six acres, or 250,000 square feet, of new public spaces of all kinds, including new public piers and streets that will be converted to pedestrian-oriented spaces.
