Redevelopment plans are finally moving forward for an office building in Del Ray, the Washington Business Journal first reported.

Bonaventure Realty purchased 2525 Mount Vernon Avenue, which currently houses the Alexandria Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS). DCHS will be moving to the West End in 2023.

“On Friday, the developer submitted a development concept plan for a new project at 2525 Mount Vernon Ave., bound by E. Mount Ida Avenue and Stewart Avenue, calling for a redevelopment of the older office building there for mixed-use,” the Washington Business Journal reported yesterday. “Plans show the roughly 1-acre building and parking lot would be redeveloped with a four-floor, 88,500-square-foot building with ground-floor retail and 78 apartments above.”

Bonaventure Realty leaders previously said they were waiting for the city’s plans for the area to move forward before redeveloping at 2525 Mount Vernon Avenue and other nearby properties.
