EYA, the developers of more than a dozen communities in Alexandria, have unveiled the newest addition to the Old Town riverfront, The Oronoco Waterfront Residences.

An adaptive re-use of the six-story Sheet Metal Workers International Association Building at 601 N. Fairfax St., the luxury condominium is the first major residential addition to the Alexandria waterfront in recent years.

The complex features 60 one-level residences selling for $1.59 to $4.49 million. Forty-eight of the residences have sold.

Many of the buyers, said AJ Jackson, EYA senior vice president and partner, are empty nesters who want to downsize but still want residences with the large floor plans The Oronoco offers, which include outdoor terraces up to 1,000 square feet.

Each residence features 10-foot ceilings, hardwood floors in all living areas, advanced home automation systems, recessed lighting, quartz kitchen and bathroom countertops, high-end modern appliances, glass and tile walk-in showers and soaking tubs. Many units feature floor to ceiling windows, living room or indoor/outdoor gas fireplaces, wet bar and wine cooler.

All residents have access to building amenities that include a two-story lobby with concierge desk, 24-hour security, heated outdoor pool, outdoor bathhouse and kitchen, fitness center with yoga room, children’s playroom, meeting room, dog washing station and bicycle storage area. In addition, every resident receives a secure, private storage area of up to 120 square feet and two indoor parking spaces.

The Oronoco is built to LEED for new construction standards set by the U.S. Green Building Council.

The Oronoco Sales Office is located at 119 Oronoco St. and a model unit is available for viewing. For more information:
