A surface parking lot in Arlandria could be converted into a park and playground for a new affordable housing development in the area.

At a meeting tonight, Alexandria’s City Council is scheduled to vote on an ordinance to sell the property at 3700 Mount Vernon Avenue, a surface parking lot in Arlandria. The property is part of a larger redevelopment project by the Alexandria Housing Development Corporation (AHDC) that will add 475 deeply affordable units and 38,000 square feet of commercial space.

Plans presented to the City Council show that the open courtyard will be a mix of open space, a play space for children, and a garden walk.
