Alexandria Waterfront Commission to Hold Community Meeting on Potential Use of Property at 2 King Street

For Immediate Release: December 13, 2019

The Alexandria Waterfront Commission will hold a community meeting to receive comments on the potential use of the portion of 2 King St. that includes eight parking spaces. The meeting will be held on Thursday, December 19, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in City Hall Sister Cities Conference Room 1101 (301 King St.). 

The City of Alexandria received an unsolicited proposal to develop the parking lot portion of the property located at 2 King St., which was acquired by the City through a settlement agreement with the Old Dominion Boat Club. The portion of the property formerly used for the Old Dominion Boat Club building and parking lot was replaced with Waterfront Park in November 2018. The property to be discussed at the community meeting is not the park area, but the remaining portion with eight parking spaces located across Strand Street, which is currently leased for private parking. The City has not decided on the future use of these eight parking spaces and is interested in hearing from the public about what kinds of public or private uses would be desirable.
