2018 PMA Marketing and Advertising Excellence Awards for Brochure for lease up community


The Thornton is ideally situated in charming Old Town Alexandria near restaurants, retail, and some of the best recreational resources in the region, including the adjacent 18-mile Mount Vernon trail. The 439-unit community boasts some of the largest studio, one- and two- bedroom luxury apartments in Alexandria. Its unique waterfront orientation (directly seated on Huntington Creek), convenience to Old Town Alexandria, and immediate access to the Capital Beltway and George Washington Parkway make it an ideal location for DMV renters. Its proximity to three Metro stations, the Metrobus transit, Dash, and major employment centers also add to its value in the area’s rental landscape. Foulger Pratt sold The Thornton in 2019 but continues to manage the property on behalf of Starwood REIT.
