Join CNU DC for a tour of Robinson Landing in Alexandria followed by a happy hour!

Robinson landing is a waterfront development in Old Town featuring condominiums and town homes. The town homes face streets of Old Town allowing the project to seamlessly blend into this historic neighborhood while the condos have prime waterfront views.

After the tour, we'll walk along the waterfront and down King Street to Sonoma Cellar. We hope to see you there!

Join CNU DC for a presentation by board member - Abbey Oklak. She will talk about the urban morphology of colonial American cities.

 

The New World was settled by European naval powers, and they created towns to control, protect and farm their new territories. These small settlements were the first suburban settlements in the United States of America (USA), and the early town planning of these new developments was based on historic precedents independent to each founding nation. Many
of the early towns have grown past their colonial boundaries to become the great metropolises of the USA. Through studying the urban morphology of three case studies - Saint Augustine, Florida; Charleston, South Carolina; and New Orleans, Louisiana - the success of these towns can give planners, architects and urban designers new methods which have been forgotten for
planning the new communities which may become the next great city.

Virtual invite will be sent out soon!
