Connecting and anchoring the sprawling and segregated retail, office, and residential areas that surround the Twinbrook Metro station, The Alaire at Twinbrook Station serves as a model for smart growth, New Urbanism, and green building. The project creates a lively, pedestrian-friendly urban streetscape in its commitment to reducing the impacts of automobile-dependent development.
With its proximity to transit and its mix of uses, The Alaire at Twinbrook Station received LEED-Neighborhood Development certification, a designation applauding high-performing building, the preservation of existing infrastructure, and the creation of enduring places of lasting value.
Exterior amenities include pocket parks, activated outdoor areas, and a pool, which provide green space, and promote sustainable living even in this newly developed urban atmosphere. A fitness center, club room, and cyber café make the building a convenient, modern space for residents.
Taking architectural cues from the existing neighborhood—including brick, shingles, dormers, and sloped roofs—the design blends into its surrounding context, changing scale as it approaches the neighborhood.
