The Cromley Lofts in Alexandria, Virginia have earned a Gold level certification making them the first condos in Virginia to become LEED certified. These 8 beautiful units are located in The Old Town area of Alexandria in a vintage warehouse building circa 1910 — a fitting example of the environmental benefits of adaptive reuse.
The condos retain many elements of their commercial past, including brick walls with spray paint and rough-hewn beams. The Lofts’ green elements include a gorgeous green roof, salvaged Georgian pine floors, bamboo cabinetry, cork flooring, low-voc carpets, paints, glues and sealants, Energy Star appliances, and the wonderful dual-flush toilets.
The style is a unique mix of rustic, industrial, and modern while still achieving a sense of warmth. One and two-bedroom units are available, some with a rooftop terrace. Prices range from $535,000-645,000. Not cheap, but unique, green, and certainly fun. Learn more about Cromley Lofts on their website.
