Archstone Van Dorn, a $22 million apartment community, is located just outside the Capital Beltway on South Van Dorn Street in Alexandria. The community's 285 apartments are divided between two groups of four buildings each. Each three- to four-story building group is connected by covered breezeways or corridors and unified by landscaped formal courtyards. The garden-style buildings feature an attractive stone and vinyl siding exterior and gable roofs with decorative cupolas.

Inside, residents enjoy spaciously designed kitchens, balconies or patios with every unit, and optional fireplaces. A variety of floor plans are also being offered, including one bed/one bath, two beds/two baths with optional lofts, and three beds/two baths. In addition, residents have two covered parking options, including attached garages integral to the apartment buildings or detached garages located throughout the community.

This Class A gated community is partially surrounded by a natural wooded conservation area and provides many recreational amenities. Residents have access to a large clubhouse with a pool and cardio theater fitness center, tot lots, and adjoining soccer fields.

The community began leasing its first apartments in the summer of 2002. For more information about Archstone Community rental opportunities, please visit www.archstonecommunities.com.
