A new office-to-residential conversion is scheduled to deliver soon just blocks from Eisenhower Avenue Metro station.
Dubbed The Foundry at Carlyle, the building will deliver 520 loft apartments atop 25,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, including co-working space and an indoor/outdoor food hall by Scott Shaw and ALX Community.
In typical adapted office style, the interior of the new building makes use of expansive windows and extra-tall ceilings. The finishes will also incorporate reclaimed materials, from wood to exposed concrete. Half of the 20,000 square feet of amenities will be on the rooftop, including a heated terrace; other common areas will include a three-story gym and a two-story bar and game room.
The building used to house the General Services Administration; the new name pays homage to Alexandria's Carlyle District and namesake founding trustee John Carlyle. The building is expected to begin pre-leasing in September. Additional renderings are below.
