ALEXANDRIA, Va.--CIM Group announced today that it has completed renovations on the amenity spaces at Mason at Van Dorn, the 1,180-unit apartment community formerly known as EOS Twenty-One. Mason at Van Dorn consists of 14 four- and five-story buildings situated on an approximately 30-acre site at 140 South Van Dorn Street in Alexandria, Virginia, which provides residents with abundant open space on manicured grounds.

The community features multiple common and recreation areas, which have been upgraded with new finishes, furniture, and equipment. The large club house features a variety of congregation areas including lounges, bar area, kids’ room, business center, game room, fitness center, and theatre room. Mason at Van Dorn also offers an on-site convenience store and deli.
