Ellisdale Construction was hired by the original landowner to provide preconstruction services and design input for this urban infill, mixed-use project. Brookfield later bought the project from the original landowner and hired Ellisdale as its builder. Mount Vernon was Brookfield's first urban infill project, and thus a very high priority, which is why they sought out and contracted with an expert to ensure its success. Located in the desirable Del Rey district of Alexandria, VA, and with expansive rooftop decks, this property is another example of Del Rey’s revival and positive transformation over the last decade. The Del Rey district is adjacent to the neighborhood where Amazon HQ2 will be located.

Ellisdale Construction delivered the Mount Vernon project on schedule and within budget. And before it was even completed, the project sold out.
