Alexandria is developing a request for proposal (RFP) to potentially sell a tiny parcel of land at 2 King Street on the Alexandria waterfront.
The 1,825-square-foot property is between Waterfront Park and The Strand Street, and has been rented out as a parking lot for neighboring businesses since it was acquired in the 2014 land swap with the Old Dominion Boat Club.
On June 28 (Tuesday), Council unanimously declared it surplus property and authorized the city manager to issue an RFP for its sale and redevelopment. Once created, the RFP will go through a public review process.
The property holds eight parking spaces, seven of which were leased on a month-to-month basis. The city took in $15,000 per year renting out the spaces, until they were terminated on May 27 to coincide with the temporary closure of The Strand Street to vehicular traffic.
“Surface parking lots are not a desirable use in this area, and are non-conforming with the current zoning, since the intent for strand Street is to become pedestrian oriented,” Al Coleman, deputy director of the city’s Department of General Services, told Council. “The limited depth of the property makes it difficult to develop independently.”
In June 2019, the city received an unsolicited offer for the property, opening the possibility of its potential sale, Coleman said.
City staff will draft an RFP this summer and fall, and City Manager Jim Parajon will provide the final document to Council in the winter.
