A proposed 59-unit affordable housing project at the corner of E. Reed Avenue and Route 1 has been delayed for a year after developers at nonprofit AHC Inc. missed a mid-March deadline for an affordable housing tax credit application, according to a DCMud report.
Developers are now aiming for a March 2013 application.
The proposal would assemble the city-owned property at 3600 Jefferson Davis Hwy. with privately-owned adjacent parcels at 120 and 118 E. Reed Ave. (which AHC currently has under site control) for a five-story multi-family apartment building, owned and operated by AHC.
Since 1975, AHC has produced 38 rental apartment communities. The Reed Avenue proposal would be AHC’s first in Alexandria.
In December, the Alexandria City Council deferred a decision on declaring the city's parcel in the assemblage a surplus property citing concerns about putting the sale ahead of a zoning decision.
Lynhaven Citizens Association President Joe Bondi examined the proposal in a November post in The Arlandrian.
