Overlook is a community of 443 homes that surrounds Fairfax County's Bren Mar Park.  This Park setting is rare for a community located Inside the Beltway.  Overlook not only provides green space for residents to enjoy, but also is only 13 miles from Washington, DC, with immediate access to 395/Beltway/95, and access to the Living amenities available in the West End of Alexandria.

Dining, shopping, recreational, and cultural options found in Washington DC, Old Town Alexandria, Arlington, Tysons, and throughout Northern Virginia are within easy reach.  A wide range of regular Life necessities are all within 10-15 minutes from Overlook.  The St. James, a 450,000 sq.ft. sport, wellness, and lifestyle complex is a 10-minute drive.

The Community offers a range of houses, from 3800+ sq.ft., 4-5 bedroom single family City Homes priced from $1.150M, to 2000-2700 sq.ft., 3-level THs, with 1-2 car garages or no garage, to 1500-1700 sq.ft. TH-style, 2-level condos with an attached 1-car garage.

Entering Overlook on either side, you enjoy a drive up a tree-lined avenue, which gives the Community a feeling of calm apart from the rush of daily Life.  Not only does Overlook have an abundance of green spaces and mature trees, Bren Mar Park provides 32 acres of mature trees, Turkeycock Run stream, Truss bridges, and walking trails for Overlook residents to enjoy.


Overlook's green spaces and the Park, coupled with the greater separation between houses for more privacy, are quality of Life features that are rarely found in a community located inside the Beltway in Northern Virginia.  

Overlook also offers its residents an outdoor pool, playgrounds, walking trails, and a tennis/pickleball court.  As seen in the Overlook community video, the Community pool looks more like a Resort-level pool than a typical residential pool.  Verizon Fios is also available to Overlook residents.

The Van Dorn Metro is located less than a 10-minute drive, with 361 daily parking spaces.  Bus service from the Overlook entrance at Winter View Drive is a six-minute ride to the Van Dorn Metro.

WestEnd AlexandriProject 

Overlook is well positioned for residents to reap “livability” and house valuation benefits from the WestEnd Alexandria development project (formerly Landmark Mall) and other planned projects along the Landmark-Van Dorn Corridor.

What is WestEnd Alexandria?

On December 22, 2020, the City of Alexandria announced the plan to redevelop Landmark Mall, with Inova as the anchor client and Foulger-Pratt as the local developer.

On February 2, 2022, Foulger-Pratt announced that the name of the redevelopment project will be "WestEnd Alexandria."

WestEnd Alexandria is designed to be a community gathering place for Alexandria's West End, with residential, retail, and restaurants, 3.5 acres of public parks, a minimum of 25% open space for each block, a transit hub, a new fire station, and the new Inova Alexandria Hospital Campus. 


This development project is one of the largest projects located Inside the Beltway & in all of Northern Virginia, at $1+ Billion for the non-hospital portion and $2.2 Billion for the entire site.

The New Inova Alexandria Hospital Campus   


Inova will build a new World-class hospital complex with:

  • 230 in-patient hospital (all private rooms);

  • Level II Trauma Center (1 of 3 in NoVa), providing 24-hour specialty services for brain injuries, complex fractures, and other trauma care;

  • Level III NICU;

  • Comprehensive cancer care center;

  • Advanced services for obstetrics, heart & vascular, & neurosciences; and

  • Medical office building for 50 specialty physicians.

On March 18, 2023, the Alexandria City Council unanimously approved the Special Use Permit for the Inova Alexandria Hospital Campus.  Inova can now proceed for approval of the Final Site Plan, which is expected to occur in Summer 2023.


The Hospital Campus is scheduled to open in 3rd Quarter of 2028.

In addition to bringing a World-class hospital and shopping, dining, & entertainment options five minutes from Overlook, the WestEnd Alexandria project will be a catalyst for other planned development projects that will bring additional options for livability benefits along the Landmark-Van Dorn Corridor, such as Overlook at West End, Greenhill South, the Vulcan site redevelopment, and other projects.
