Alexandria, VA

If you plan to stay at the new boarding facility at the intersection of N. Fayette Street and Queen Street, you’ll always have a convenient place to get your hair cut.

The planned affordable roominghouse for men above Heads Up Barbershop (300 N. Fayette Street) — and owned by the same family — is scheduled to go to the Planning Commission on Tuesday, Feb. 2. The four-bedroom unit will have individual bathrooms and a shared central kitchen and laundry facility. The application notes that most residents do not own cars and no off-street parking will be provided.

“There is only one occupant allowed per room,” the application said. “The occupants are employed or government assisted, low-income males.”

Rooms will be on the more affordable side for Old Town, typically rented at $650 per month according to the application.

“The plan is to offer short term (4th months) and long-term (1- year) leases,” the application said. “The lease includes a ‘Code of Conduct’ for each tenant to be signed with the lease. Because family owns the barbershop on first floor, the housekeeping and maintenance will be observed on a daily basis to ensure clean and safe conditions.”
