"This is an architect's dream," says Patrick Burkhart, Design Principal with Shalom Baranes Associates, the project architect. "These condos are the size of many large single family homes."

"The Oronoco's design offers a lot of wonderful corners that gave us the opportunity to maximize a sense of spaciousness," says Burkhart. "We created sweeping diagonal views through open living-dining-kitchen areas which measure 800 s.f. or more in many floorplans. The expansiveness is further enhanced by ceilings higher than 10' throughout, and window walls with views across the river to monumental Washington."

These rare Potomac waterfront condos, at 601 N. Fairfax Street in Alexandria, border Oronoco Bay Park and have immediate access to Old Town's retail, entertainment and transportation options. Homes will have ultra-premium finishes, and building amenities will include ample underground parking, a fitness room/yoga center, pool and pool house, outdoor cooking center, meeting room, playroom, and dog washing station. The building will be staffed with a concierge and porter, and have a 24-hour attended lobby.

The Oronoco offers a rare combination of expansive floorplans, single-level living and a location providing both Potomac riverfront location and walkable Old Town convenience. "It's five blocks off King Street, two blocks to a new Harris Teeter, three blocks off Washington Street with its tons of restaurants. For commuting, it's just a short walk to the Metro and a one-minute drive to the G.W. Parkway, with incredibly easy access to DC," notes EYA Vice President Preston Innerst. He adds, "The Oronoco is the only new condominium that has the combination of views and direct access from your back door to a park on the Alexandria waterfront."
