Plenty of apartments in that price range on the 95 corridor. Studios in Alexandria around Landmark and a bunch in Woodbridge, off the top of my head.

So I’ve lived in both actually. Lol. The Washington is small. It was too small for me. So now I live in a Lee Premier and I love it. I’m big on aesthetic so I chose the premier upgrade cause it looks more modern to me, but when I was in the Washington, it was the standard apartment. And that was okay too.
