Approved in 2014, the plan leverages the unique waterfront orientation of the site, convenience to Old Town Alexandria, and immediate access to the Capital Beltway. Additionally, the project has proximity to three Metro stations and major employment centers.
The Thornton is ideally situated in 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 site features immediate access to the Capital Beltway and the George Washington Parkway, Dash and Metrobus transit, and is conveniently located near three Metro stations.
Foulger-Pratt sold The Thornton in 2019, but continues to manage the property.
