AHC Partners with City of Alexandria on New Affordable Housing Project
- Oct 03, 2012
Alexandria, Va.—The City of Alexandria approved $250,000 in pre-development funds to move forward with AHC on building a 77-unit affordable apartment complex at the intersection of East Reed Avenue and Jefferson Davis Highway (Route 1). The building will include one, two and three-bedroom apartments and serve families earning 60 percent or less of the area median income (AMI). The project is being designed by Bonstra l Haresign Architects.
The location has excellent access to public transit with bus service currently running in the area, and Metro and bus rapid transit planned for the corridor. The project will have underground parking for residents, a rooftop patio, onsite management, and a community space. AHC plans to coordinate with a local service provider for educational programming.
The initial layout and building plan have been reviewed by neighbors and city staff. AHC expects to submit a final plan for City approval in late 2012.
