Potomac Greens/Potomac Yard

The communities of Potomac Yard and Potomac Green border Arlandria and Del Ray on the east and are just south of Reagan National Airport. At the turn of the 19th century, Potomac Yard was one of the busiest rail yards on the eastern seaboard. Today, Potomac Yard is still a major hub for transportation.

As the names may suggest, Potomac Yard and Potomac Green borrow their names from the Potomac River on which they are situated. While much of the area’s history is contemporary in nature, it should be noted that Daingerfield Island, located in the eastern part of Potomac Yard, marks one of the first permanent colonial settlements in Alexandria. Daingerfield Island was settled in 1669. 

Quality of Life:

Potomac Yard and Potomac Green are close to it all. Residents enjoy numerous amenities at Potomac Yard Center. Property here is defined by stately townhouses. Expansive green space inaptly named Potomac Green affords wonderful, riverside views of the Washington Monument. The Mt. Vernon Trail, also located in Potomac Green, is ideal for bikers and joggers; traversing this trail, one can safely travel the banks of the Potomac, north to Roosevelt Island or south to George Washington’s Mt. Vernon estate.

As with most communities in the City of Alexandria, residents of Potomac Yard and Potomac Green are only steps away from Old Town. The restaurants and boutiques of Del Ray are also easily accessible.

 

Getting Around:

Commutes are easy from Potomac Yard and Potomac Green. Route 1 and the George Washington Parkway are both nearby. Potomac Yard and Potomac Green are central to several metro stops. Venturing to Arlington in the north, one can pick up the Blue and Yellow Line metro at the Crystal City Metro or Pentagon City Metro. There is an Amtrak platform at the Crystal City Metro. The Braddock Road Metro is located just to the south. Residents are moments away from Reagan National Airport.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 5 miles.
Washington-Dulles International Airport:  < 35 miles.
Baltimore-Washington International Airport:  < 40 miles.
