Fairfax County Affordable Housing Recognized by Virginia Housing Alliance

The Virginia Housing Alliance released the 2023 Virginia Housing Trust Fund annual report, which highlights affordable housing developments funded during the 2018-19 competitive loan plan cycle. Several Fairfax County initiatives are featured:

  • Beacon Landing, Fairfax: This collaborative effort between the Lamb Center and Wesley Housing transforms the former Hy-Way Motel site in Fairfax into a Permanent Supportive Housing community. This strategic partnership aims to address the housing needs of older adults and individuals with disabilities who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

  • The Arden, Alexandria: Amenities include a courtyard patio, community center, parking, bike storage and onsite laundry, as well as easy access to the Huntington Metro station. The Arden incorporates 7,500 sq. ft. of office space, enabling Wesley Housing to move its main office to the premises.

  • Lake Anne House, Reston: Lake Anne House is a living community geared toward a diverse population of low-income senior citizens. The site was redeveloped from previous facilities that had become functionally obsolete, welcoming residents back over the summer of 2022. All 240 units have been universally designed to accommodate a wide range of residents, including features like grab bars, lower workspaces, and task lighting, with 54 units being fully handicap accessible.

  • The Residences at North Hill, Alexandria: This development features a variety of housing options, including 216 affordable rental units, 63 affordable senior independent living apartments, 175 market-rate townhomes, and a 12-acre public park. The location along the Richmond Highway Corridor offers convenient access to shopping, dining, entertainment, and public transportation.
