Post Carlyle Square Block “O” Wins Multifamily Executive Award
LAS VEGAS—On Tuesday at its gala luncheon, Multifamily Executive (MFE) Magazine named Post Carlyle Square Block "O" the 2013 award winner for Best High Rise project. Constructed by Clark Builders Group (CBG) for repeat client Post Properties, Block "O" was recognized for going above and beyond in its class. Post Carlyle Square Block "O" endured a rigorous judging process for the award, competing against a record-breaking three hundred applicants. According to the magazine, which honors the best and brightest in the multifamily housing industry, "This year, Multifamily Executive received...award nominations...in 19 categories, which illustrates not only the health, but also the vision and creativity, of an industry firing on all cylinders."
Post Carlyle Square
Located in transit-oriented Alexandria, Virginia, Post Carlyle Square is within walking distance of Old Town Alexandria, a lively neighborhood on the Potomac River known for its restaurants, shops, and historic attractions. The property boasts beautiful courtyards and rooftop terraces in which residents can relax and enjoy the outdoors. Recognized for overcoming many on-site issues during construction, CBG removed and remediated contaminated soils and collaborated extensively with structural engineers to address the irregularly shaped site.
"Post Carlyle Square Block 'O' has remade a once-polluted industrial site into a lively, urban, mixed-use community," stated the MFE website, "The 'O' might as well stand for 'outstanding.'"
"Post Carlyle Square was a challenging, yet rewarding, property to build," said Jeremey Lester, superintendent on the project. "This is our first multifamily project in the Carlyle District, and we are honored that it was recognized for such an esteemed award. We look forward to working with Post Properties again and delivering the same level of excellence."
To accommodate both the target market and its Alexandria-based neighbors, Post Carlyle Square economizes unit size to facilitate the use of high-end details. Constructed to fit into the historic chic of the neighborhood, the building displays a facade of brick and modern glass detail that blends with the antiquity of Old Town while boasting modern finishes. The property's lavish amenities include a rooftop pool and fitness area, two courtyards with grilling areas, and a 24/7 virtual concierge. Walkability and beautiful views come gratis with the location.
