Apartment Highlight: Bell Del Ray

This is the first of what we hope to be a series of posts highlighting notable and downright awesome places to live in the Washington, DC-area. We’ve seen some truly spectacular places in our thousands of moves around the DMV, and we thought highlighting a few of them might be helpful for people looking to relocate in the near future. 

When we at My Truck Buddy assess a building, it’s through the eyes of our work — does it have spacious elevators? Are they centrally located to avoid long walks? How’s the parking? Since those questions aren’t likely to be the most relevant to prospective residents, we decided to ask some of our contacts in local apartment buildings to give us their take on why their apartment buildings are among the best.

It was easy to decide which apartment to approach first: Bell Del Ray. It was easy because the management is friendly and truly helpful, and it was recently built in an excellent location not far from shopping centers and the Metro. We also like it because it’s adjacent to our old HQ in Del Ray, home of several Truck Buddy favorite haunts such as The Evening Star and Cheesetique (What?)

Today’s highlight: Bell Del Ray of Alexandria, VA.
