Model Homes Open in Alexandria's Largest LEED for Homes Neighborhood

EYA Brings Smart City Living™ to Old Town, Steps From Braddock Metro

ALEXANDRIA, VA--(Marketwire - November 23, 2010) - On Saturday, December 4th from 11 AM - 4 PM, EYA will celebrate the grand opening of its two new model townhomes at Old Town Commons, Alexandria's largest LEED for Homes community.

Located just steps from Braddock Metro station and the Potomac River, Old Town Commons offers easy access to the countless amenities of Old Town Alexandria. The Mount Vernon Trail along the waterfront is just four blocks away. Directly across the street, residents enjoy fitness, swimming and classes at the Charles Houston Recreation Center. And the acclaimed shops and restaurants of King Street provide a destination for every desire. All this is intended to help homeowners reduce dependence on their cars -- increasing their quality of life and decreasing their carbon footprint and environmental impact. 

Homes are smartly designed and healthier, too. The townhomes at Old Town Commons achieve LEED for Homes certification through the U.S. Green Building Council. Features such as nontoxic pest treatment, low-flow toilets and faucets, low VOC paints and finishes, and recycled construction materials reduce environmental impact. ENERGY STAR® appliances also save homeowners money on utility bills, as do programmable thermostats, enhanced insulation techniques, CFL lighting, and heat reflective roofing. 

EYA's model homes at Old Town Commons are proof that Smart City Living™ and environmentally friendly construction techniques can be quite luxurious for homeowners. Interior design was provided by award-winning firm Carlyn & Co. Visit to view the latest in interior trends, see some of Old Town's most iconic furnishings and artwork, and admire the views from the rooftop terraces. New homes start from the upper $500s. Discover why so many homebuyers choose to call EYA neighborhoods "home."
