The Dalton, a new 14-story apartment building in Old Town Alexandria, is under construction by High Street Residential, Trammell Crow Co., Meadow Partners and Clark Construction.

Designed by SK&I Architects, the 270-unit building is one of the tallest in the area surrounding the Braddock Road Metro station. The top-floor units will have unobstructed views of the Washington skyline and the Potomac River.

Planned amenities include more than 10,000 square feet of common space and a rooftop swimming pool, and an area with a fireplace, grills, an indoor lounge, a fitness center and a yoga studio.

The Dalton, anticipated to be completed in November, will begin preleasing in the summer or early fall. Rents have yet to be determined.
