Request for Proposals - Lease of the Beachcombers Building as a Restaurant

The City is now accepting proposals for a long-term lease agreement for the operation of the Beachcombers Building as a restaurant. The building, located on the Potomac River at 0 Prince Street in Old Town, opened as the City's first waterfront restaurant in 1946. Proposals will involve the renovation of the building as well as the ongoing restaurant operations. If you wish to submit a proposal for this property and be included on future correspondence related to this Request for Proposal process, please contact the Department of General Services at 703.746.4770.


South Pickett Street Post Office Moving to Smaller Space

The United State Postal Service Trade Center Station at 340 S. Pickett St. will be consolidating their services and moving to a smaller space. The sorting and distribution operations will move to the Franconia Road post office location outside the City. The mail counter and retail operations would move to a separate, yet to be determined location within the City. There would be no impact on letter carrier delivery. A community meeting to discuss these changes is planned for 10 a.m., Friday, March 29, at the Ellen Coolidge Burke Branch Library, 4701 Seminary Road.


Alexandria's Trash Fuels Electric Car

The City of Alexandria's Department of Transportation & Environmental Services (T&ES) has partnered with the Covanta Energy-from-Waste facility to promote the benefits of using trash to power electric cars.  The average Alexandria household disposes 46 pounds of trash each week, which generates almost 12.7 kWh of electricity when processed at the Covanta Energy facility located at 5301 Eisenhower Avenue.  That's enough energy to drive a Nissan Leaf 37 miles!  The vehicle, which was donated by Covanta Energy, has no supplementary gas engine, runs solely on a rechargeable battery, and emits no harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.  As part of the City's Eco-City Alexandria initiative and environmental sustainability efforts, the electric car is displayed to encourage residents to "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Recover Energy from Waste".
