A new office-to-residential conversion is scheduled to deliver soon just blocks from Eisenhower Avenue Metro station.

Perseus TDC, Four Points and ELV Associates have retrofit a 47 year-old industrial office building at 2470 Mandeville Lane (map) into a 16-story mixed-use project.

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.
