Redevelopment Of Affordable Housing In Alexandria

A call has been put out for developers by the Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority to redevelop five affordable housing properties in the city, according to a Feb. 25 request for qualifications. The city aims to establish private partnerships to assist in its ongoing efforts to provide more, and better quality, affordable housing by issuing an RFQ. Developers would have to commit to the city’s one-for-one replacement of the site’s affordable housing in order to enter into the partnership, per a resolution that the council passed last year. According to, "The five properties identified for potential redevelopment are Andrew Adkins, Samuel Madden, the Ladrey High Rise, Yale Drive – formerly known as Cameron Valley – and Hopkins Tancil. The properties account for a total of 477 units of affordable housing, according to ARHA." Mayor Justin Wilson said, "This an important step, this is a big step. There’s a lot of work still left to do, but this is good progress in our work to rehabilitate, refresh and renew public housing in our city." As per, "ARHA’s goal is to achieve a balance of one-third low-income housing, one-third workforce housing and one-third market-rate units in each of the five sites in order to create more mixed-income communities, according to the RFQ."
