Alexandria Park & Recreation Commission to Hold Public Hearing on Carlyle Plaza II / Carlyle Park Towers Open Space Design 

For Immediate Release: March 11, 2021

The Alexandria Park & Recreation Commission will hold a public hearing on the proposed design on Carlyle Plaza II / Carlyle Park Towers Open Space at the Park and Recreation Commission meeting on Thursday, March 18, 2021. The community is encouraged to review the proposed park design and provide input via email until Wednesday, March 17, 2021 or at the public hearing. For more information, visit the the Park & Recreation Commision  website to view the February 17, 2021 video presentation.

The Carlyle Plaza II / Carlyle Park Towers  development approval includes four tower buildings with a four-to-five story, above-grade parking garage that will provide parking for all the buildings and is designed to accommodate a green roof which will be open to the public as open space. The rooftop open space will connect the development properties with the athletic field on the Alexandria Renew site (Limerick Field), creating more than 5 acres of integrated open space. The developer will also design and construct the parks created by the elimination of the Eisenhower Circle, referred to as North-Circle Park and South-Circle Park. The extensive rooftop public open space is connected to grade via a “transition zone” – a landscaped assemblage of overlooks, terraces and stairs that leads down to the South-Circle Park.
