The parcel is zoned R8-Single Family, 8,000 square feet.

The City-owned property at 3002 A Mosby Street is considered landlocked with no road access and is entirely surrounded by land owned by others and is therefore NOT “independently developable” with adjacent landowners being the only entities having access to or capable of using the land.

The Property is being offered and shall be sold “as-is”, “where is” and “with all faults” and the City of Alexandria shall make no warranties or representations, expressed or implied.
