Aventon Companies Announces $100 Million+ Project at Huntington Metro Station


Multifamily development positioned to advance Route 1 corridor revitalization

Fairfax County, VA (May 6, 2021) – Aventon Companies announced the start of construction for Aventon Huntington, a 366-unit apartment community located adjacent to the Huntington Metro station in Alexandria, Virginia. The new property is ideally situated just south of Washington, DC and within a few miles of Old Town Alexandria, the Capital Beltway, Reagan National Airport and Amazon’s future headquarters in National Landing. The Huntington submarket is experiencing a rapid transformation from an automobile-centric community with a limited supply of new housing to a thriving transit hub with a mix of uses.

“We are excited to be part of the transformation of the Huntington area,” said Mark Coletta, Senior Managing Director for Aventon Companies.  “Fairfax County is known as one of the best places to live in the U.S.. Aventon Huntington’s transit-oriented location at the nexus of major employment centers will provide an exceptional living experience to this growing community.”

Located on approximately four acres at 5919 N. Kings Highway with views of Alexandria, Washington D.C., and the Potomac River, Aventon Huntington will offer studio, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments in seven stories and include smart home technology and market-leading finishes. Residents will enjoy over 15,000 square feet of indoor amenity space including remote-working lounges with private offices, fitness and yoga studios, gaming and media lounges, a pod-cast studio, video conference studio, roof-top deck and indoor sky lounge with private dining space, pet spa, automated package delivery, bike storage and repair shop, and covered parking. Outdoor spaces include a private resort-style pool, summer kitchen, outdoor media lounge, and outdoor remote-working courtyard.  The building will be certified Silver under the National Green Building Standard for sustainability.

In January 2020, Aventon announced the start of construction on Aventon Crown, another $100 million + community that will bring 386 new apartment homes to Crown, a master-planned community in Montgomery County, MD. Aventon Crown will launch pre-leasing in July. 

Since its founding just three years ago, Aventon Companies has aggressively assembled an impressive portfolio of ground up development and currently has over $525 million of projects under construction bringing nearly 2,300 Aventon-branded apartment homes to strong submarkets in Maryland, Virginia, Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas. The company also has a near term development pipeline of approximately 3,000 new units with an investment of nearly $675 million in these same markets.
