  • Braddock West Site Security Notification - 11/17

    The Braddock West team is aware of the unauthorized trespassing that has been occurring on the Braddock West site and is actively taking action to deter future trespassing attempts.

    We are coordinating with our general contractor to secure all first-level entry points on each of the properties located on the site. The materials are scheduled to be installed on Friday. We have also ordered a perimeter security fence with corresponding ‘No Trespassing Signage’ that will be installed as soon as delivered.

    We thank the Braddock community for being actively engaged in the future Braddock West site. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the team via info@braddockwest.com regarding any questions, comments, or concerns throughout the project’s construction.

  • Construction Start Notice - 11/15

    The Braddock West team is excited to share a project update with the community. After months of design and permit coordination, we are officially breaking-ground on off-site utility construction at the future Braddock West development. Off-site construction will begin with the installation of a new sanitary sewer line along Wythe Street from the intersection of N. Fayette and Wythe Street to the intersection of N. Payne and Wythe Street. The duration for this segment of construction is approximately three (3) months and will require Wythe Street to remain closed 24/7 to ensure safe and efficient construction. Although Wythe Street will be closed, both the N. Fayette and N. Payne intersections will remain operational. In addition to the sanitary sewer construction along Wythe Street, construction that includes relocating overhead utility lines underground will begin on Madison Street. During this time, a portion of the eastbound lane will be closed during construction hours, but transportation in both directions will still be available. For additional information regarding off-site construction, please review the August 23, 2022 - Braddock West - Pre-Construction Meeting Presentation under the Document Library section of the Braddock West Website.

    If you have any questions, comments, or concerns during construction, please do not hesitate to contact info@braddockwest.com. A team member will to connect with you promptly.

    We thank you for your continued engagement with the Braddock West project. We are one step closer to transforming this Metro-adjacent site into a mixed-use residential development that will create community-focused retail and improved pedestrian experiences!

  • New FAQ Section

    The Braddock West team would like to thank all community members that attended the pre-construction meeting on August 23rd. We were excited to be able to share information regarding upcoming off-site construction as well as hear from you.

    The purpose of the August meeting was to inform community members surrounding the Braddock West site of construction commencing September 2022 including public utility improvements along Madison, N. West, and Wythe Streets. These utility improvements will require that commuting patterns be altered to allow for efficient and safe construction. For more information regarding upcoming construction efforts and corresponding road closures, please review the August 23, 2022 – Braddock West – Pre-Construction Meeting Presentation located under the document library section. As of now, we are still working towards finalizing the start date of off-site construction and will communicate that information once it is set.

    In addition to distributing construction information, we received many thoughtful questions that are pertinent to all members of the Braddock West community. With that, we have added a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section to the Braddock West website that will serve as a way for us to communicate any questions that we receive, as well as a place for community members to reference. We have updated this section to include all questions that arose during the pre-construction meeting and as construction progresses, we will continue to post questions to this section.

    As always, we greatly appreciate your questions, feedback, and ideas for the Braddock West development. Please continue to check this site for updates on the project as off-site construction will begin in a few short weeks.

  • Pre-Construction Info Session TONIGHT 8/23

    The Braddock West team is excited to share a project update to the community. Following up on our hand-delivered flyers to neighbors directly adjacent to the site, we will be hosting a pre-construction information session this evening (Tuesday August 23rd) at the Charles Houston Recreation Center (901 Wythe Street, Alexandria, VA), beginning at 6:30pm.

    Since receiving City Council approval for the development in summer 2021, we have been working with our team of architects and engineers to finalize the construction and permit plans. Phase 1 of the project is scheduled to commence in September 2022 and includes the undergrounding of overhead telecom and electrical lines surrounding the site, as well as the installation of sanitary sewer upgrades along Wythe Street. Completion of the Phase 1 utility upgrades is required for construction vehicles to access the project’s site for the building construction. Phase 2 will begin upon the completion of the offsite infrastructure in 2023, with an estimated project delivery in 2025.

    Thank you for your patience as we work towards transforming this Metro-adjacent site to a mixed-use residential building with an improved pedestrian experience on the block, neighborhood-serving retail and improved infrastructure that will support the neighborhood and Alexandria.

    As Phase 1 construction progresses, please continue to check this site for additional updates on the project and construction logistics. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out via email if you have any questions or concerns throughout the project’s construction.
