The Association understands that several owners have come to the office requesting information about letters received from Minkoff, regarding mechanic’s liens recorded against the units in the Condominium. As was noted in the last newsletter, Minkoff has filed an action against the Association to collect certain amounts it believes it is owed for the scaffolding installed at the Condominium as part of the abrupt partial collapse. These letters and the mechanic’s liens represent further efforts by Minkoff to force the Association to pay the amounts it has demanded. At the present time, the Association is defending the action and working to resolve this dispute, as well as to resolve the mechanic’s liens filed.
River Towers is a unique high-rise condominium community in northern Virginia that is near everything, yet far away from it all. The Washington Post aptly called the condominium complex a, "hidden-away gem." Tucked away among 26 beautiful park-like acres of private land, River Towers is just 2 miles south of Alexandria's Old Town. It is a peaceful and private community that is bordered by the National Park Service's Dyke Marsh Wildlife Preserve and county parks. At River Towers, residents enjoy pools, tennis courts, exercise rooms, rooftop terraces, garden plots, a picnic grove with grills, basketball court, playground, volleyball field, and Club Room. Residents can walk - within a three block radius – to a grocery store, drug store, post office, bank, library, restaurants, the Potomac River, bike and walking trails, an elementary school, and a recreation center with an Olympic-sized pool, indoor ice rink, and a fitness center. A marina is only 1/2 mile away. A bus stop is on our door step, connecting residents to our nation's capital though the DC metrorail's yellow line.
