Robinson Terminal Engages Studley, Inc. To Sell Last Two Waterfront
Development Sites In Alexandria, VA
WASHINGTON, Feb. 5, 2013
WASHINGTON, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Studley, Inc. has been exclusively
retained by Robinson Terminal to market for sale Robinson Terminal North and
South, the last two prime waterfront redevelopment sites available in historic
Old Town Alexandria. Robinson Terminal is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The
Washington Post Company (NYSE: WPO). The sites are located across the Potomac
River from Washington, D.C. and represent a prominent redevelopment
opportunity within one of America's most storied and vibrant neighborhoods.
The two Terminal properties offer the potential for more than 600,000 square
feet of mixed-use redevelopment on approximately 6.7 acres of land and include
1,000 linear feet of Potomac River frontage and 2,000 linear feet of street
frontage on major Old Town thoroughfares. Due to their size, sought-after
location and excellent water views, the Terminal sites have been a key focus
of the Alexandria City Council's Waterfront Small Area Plan, which seeks to
establish redevelopment goals for the Old Town Alexandria waterfront.
Studley brokers Vernon Knarr and Arthur Greenberg are spearheading the
marketing efforts to sell these assets.
"We are excited to offer these unique waterfront assets for sale," said
Knarr. "The sites, which are less than half a mile apart, are the bookends of
the vibrant redeveloping Old Town waterfront. They have breathtaking
unobstructed river views of Washington, D.C. and present a tremendous
opportunity for new residential, hotel, commercial, retail, restaurant and
other transformative mixed uses in the heart of Alexandria," added Greenberg.
Robert W. Taylor, President of Robinson Terminal, said, "We have decided that
the time is right to market the North and South Terminals on the Alexandria
waterfront, where we have had a long history of operations. As the business
has evolved over time, we can consolidate operations in Springfield, VA and
continue to provide high-quality service to our customers. We're optimistic
that the market will respond favorably to the offering."

Greenberg, Executive Vice President (202) 624-8519 firstname.lastname@example.org.
