Transaction marks Northpoint’s third acquisition and redevelopment in Alexandria, Virginia in two years
Northpoint Realty Partners announces today its acquisition of 6.32 acres of land at the intersection of Midtown Avenue and Metroview Parkway in Alexandria, Virginia. Northpoint purchased the land for $5.625 million and plans to spend another $2 million entitling the land at Huntington Crossing, allowing for a mix of townhomes and a five-story condominium.
“Huntington Crossing provided Northpoint with the opportunity to purchase an attractive land investment with excellent demographics adjacent to the Huntington Avenue Metro with outstanding access to I-495, Hoffman Town Center with the new Wegmans and Old Town Alexandria,” states Tim Riordan, Acquisitions & Investments Partner, Northpoint Realty Partners.
Huntington Crossing is Northpoint’s second transaction with the land seller, the Hoffman Company; they acquired and redeveloped 2461 Eisenhower Avenue in 2015. The entitlements at Huntington Crossing is slated to commence November 2017 and is projected to complete in the 4th quarter of 2019.
“The positive impact that this redevelopment will have for Alexandria is what we find so exciting,” notes Christian Chambers, Managing Partner and Founder, Northpoint Realty Partners. “We are partnering with Urban Engineering, Walsh Colucci and KTGY to create a place where Washingtonians are going to want to live – right in Fairfax County.”
Newmark Knight Frank’s Brendan Owen, Dan Lockard and Mark Anstine represented the Hoffman Company in the transaction, making Huntington Crossing NKF’s fifth asset sold in the Carlyle submarket on behalf of Hoffman. “We were pleased to represent the Hoffman Company in the sale of Huntington Crossing. This acquisition will provide Northpoint a unique opportunity to develop an incredibly located parcel into trophy quality office or residential space in a rapidly developing area,” says Lockard. “This sale is evidence of a greater trend in development along Metro lines in Northern Virginia.”
