One Hundred Homes, One Community

Watergate of Alexandria is an award-winning residential community of elegant Williamsburg-style row homes and beautifully landscaped courtyards and gardens in North Old Town. It is located one block east of the George Washington Parkway, two blocks inland from the Potomac River, a few miles south of National Airport, a 15-minute walk from the Braddock Road Metro Station, and a short drive across the river from Washington, D.C.

Our History

Watergate of Alexandria was originally conceived in the mid-1970s as a riverfront high rise development, but its developers exchanged their initial site for a former school site owned by the City of Alexandria. This trade facilitated the City's establishment of a public park along the Potomac River, and Watergate's development of two- and three-story traditional luxury town homes that reflect the historic character of the surrounding Old Town neighborhood. Completed in two phases beginning in 1977, Watergate of Alexandria is situated on adjoining city blocks bounded by North Royal, North Pitt, First and Second Streets. Watergate of Alexandria was created by the developers of the Watergate complex in Foggy Bottom, and the Watergate of Landmark community.

Our Residents

The residents of Watergate of Alexandria have long been active in the Old Town community. In its early years, Watergate hosted a number of special community events, including demonstrations of colonial crafts and walking tours of its gardens, spectacular plantings and koi pond. Today, many of our residents are involved in community affairs, serving on local advisory boards and community councils. We comprise a relatively small community of residents, many of whom have enjoyed living at Watergate of Alexandria for many years.

Our Community

As Watergate of Alexandria approaches its 40th Anniversary, we continue to welcome new residents, and improve our infrastructure and grounds. Our community served as one of the original seeds for the vibrant growth and development that is now coming fully to fruition in North Old Town. We have both deep roots and new shoots.

Our Website
