Notch 8 means “full throttle” on a diesel-electric locomotive, pushing the train to as fast as it can go, which makes it an appropriate name for the just-opened upscale apartment building at Alexandria’s Potomac Yard that pulls out all the stops.
This six-story apartment building is located in the historic former railroad yard and is designed to keep residents going full throttle by offering a number of amenities to enhance today’s modern lifestyle. (It’s not all high-octane: The hammocks in the courtyard are an example of how residents can slow things down, if they wish).
This weekend’s Open House event is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. While touring the two model apartments at Notch 8, visitors will enjoy a complimentary hot cocoa and gourmet coffee bar with all the fixings and decadent donuts from Alexandria’s Sugar Shack.
As a bonus, those applying during this weekend’s Open House event can receive up to two months free rent, as well as a $1,000 gift card to Giant Food, which is conveniently located on the ground floor of the building. (The Giant also boasts a Starbucks and a PNC Bank, now that’s one stop shopping!)
Notch 8 is not your average apartment community. Designed with a modern-industrial aesthetic, the cool-factor starts from the moment you walk in the lobby and are greeted by the impressive large scale 15-foot concrete encased fireplace, a perfect place to sit by on a wintery afternoon.
These brand new apartments feature stainless steel appliances, contemporary plank flooring, pantry, kitchen island, oversized windows streaming in natural light, and a hi-tech Nest learning thermostat.
The amenity areas include an extensive courtyard with swimming pool, grilling stations, outdoor billiards and fire pit; KICK fitness center with a personal trainer; game room with Xbox One and PS4; and a lounge with a sweet 80″ flat screen and entertainment kitchen.
Notch 8 is convenient to Route 1 and I-395, offering direct access to the District. The underground garage has EV charging stations and a Zipcar right next door.
Plus, there is a dedicated Metroway bus running every six minutes during rush hour to both the Crystal City and Braddock Road Metro stations on the Blue and Yellow lines.
Notch 8 is located at 2900 Main Line Blvd in Alexandria. Learn more about this weekend’s Open House event on Notch 8’s website or call 866-811-1457.
