Gables Old Town North is a mixed-use development located in the Old Town North neighborhood of Alexandria, VA. This area has become a popular place to visit and is increasingly the first choice for people of all ages to call home, from first time buyers to retirees. This development adds to the vibrant, walkable community by combining market-rate luxury apartments with retail shopping and dining for tourists and residents.
At street level, Gables Old Town North has over 50,000 sf of retail space, green areas and a public plaza. The plaza anchors the retail offerings with a central art element around which outdoor dining is placed. Three colors of Umbriano pavers were used in the design of the plaza to delineate the pathway leading to the entrance of the building from the seating and dining spaces. Umbriano combines built-in EasyClean® Technology for ease of maintenance with EnduraColor™ Technology to offer a wear-resistant, refined surface. This is ideal for a high traffic pedestrian space that is susceptible to stains from food and drink. The clean and contemporary design of the public plaza adds to the modern feel of the development and creates a welcoming space for visitors and residents of Gables Old Town North.
