Event Summary

Alexandria, you've got a new neighbor - and its name is Amazon. Old Town and its surrounding neighborhoods were already experiencing a development boom, but news of the tech giant's move next door has spurred another flurry of interest in Alexandria, Braddock Road, and more. Could the tech giant's move help tenants flock to Alexandria, instead of offices continuing to be converted for other uses? And with opportunities such as the Water Taxi to the Wharf and more, will Alexandria become the ultimate live-work-play destination, just a metro stop away from National Landing? Join us and the city's commercial real estate experts, as we discuss the future of Alexandria,

as well as look ahead

at how the city will grow and develop in the years to come. It's a Bisnow event you don't want to miss!
