The residents of Del Ray’s Bellefonte Apartment Community (11 East Bellefonte Avenue) are back after a pair of local non-profits announced they’ve finished extensive renovations to the affordable housing community aimed at caring for adults with special needs.
Sheltered Homes of Alexandria (SHA), Alexandria Housing Development Corporation (AHDC) spearheaded the renovation of 12 apartment units. According to a press release, the renovations included a complete interior gutting and redesign of the building; changing some units to be fully wheelchair accessible, improving the stormwater systems, and updating security at the building.
“By working together, AHDC, Sheltered Homes of Alexandria, and the city were able to create these beautiful, accessible new homes for our residents,” said Julie Jakopic, Sheltered Homes of Alexandria’s Board chair, in a press release. “This community in Del Ray will enjoy the results of these partnerships for many decades to come.”
Modern finishes and greater access to natural light were also emphasized in the redesign of the building.
“The Bellefonte Apartment community is one of many properties that SHA owns where City staff provide direct support to enable Alexandrians of all abilities to live independently in the community,” AHDC said in the press release. “City staff assist Bellefonte residents with basic activities of daily living and support the residents being active participants in the Alexandria community.”
Residents started moving back in April, but AHDC and SHA marked the site as open on June 29.
