The Old Town Boutique District is premier shopping in Alexandria, but, it is also so much more. Whether you are looking for styling tips, cooking lessons, or how to sew, OTBD has something for you. Spring will be here sooner rather than later (we hope), so it is the perfect time to invest in yourself or learn a new skill. To learn more, watch this great video filmed in some of our favorite stores around town.
Have you walked the blocks near the Braddock Metro lately? If so, then you have realized the number of restaurants popping up on up and coming corners. There are three new additions to our slice of Old Town, and a fourth on the way. Bastille, a favorite French spot, has set up its home in The Asher; Lost Dog Cafe is on the way, and do I even need to mention Sugar Shack? It is great to see some new places opening along our blocks due to the increase of new residents occupying high end apartment buildings.
To peek into what’s headed our way, and what’s already there, check out this article by The Washington Business Journal, “Alexandria’s industrial enclave welcomes the gourmet goods.”
Each new year we make goals. Whether it is to exercise more, shop less, or spend more time with family, business goals are no different. We divulge ourselves with market news each January, in hopes of getting the upper hand of new and emerging trends and markets. Like any other commercial real estate company, we have done our fair share of research and hope 2015 to be a top year.
One list in particular that I liked was Building Design and Construction’s “10 Trends In Commercial Real Estate.”
Take a look for yourself, and look out for follow up posts. One of my favorites is, “The 18-Hour City Comes of Age.”
The new work day is no longer 9-5, nor is it spent sitting in a cubical. Office space, like everything around us, is becoming more and more accessible and technologically driven, even on the commercial side.
Things are about to slow down on our front due to the holidays, but, we have a few notes to make before we say goodbye to 2014. First, a huge thank you to all those who participated and worked at our #MensNight at The Shoe Hive this week. It was a huge success and we had a blast! Second, we had a year full of wonderful partnerships and sponsorships. We are excited to see what’s in store for this new year, and look forward to continuing our outreach in Alexandria. Lastly, we have a good group of properties in the market right now. If you are looking for office space in the area, call us! We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!
It’s so good, we have to post about it twice. The date has been set: Next Tuesday the 16th will be the night we host our annual Men’s Night with The Shoe Hive. This is one of our favorite events of the year and a great way to get into the holiday spirit. Stop by the Hive from 7-9PM for beer, brats, cigars, and bourbon, oh and to shop for the women you love so dearly.
The Women of The Hive will be helping cross off wish lists with complimentary wrapping, and Nectar skin bar will be there offering luxurious gift certificates as well. Follow us online to find out more details and we really hope to see you there!
