A planned redevelopment of an affordable housing building in Arlandria could triple the number of units on the site.
Community Lodgings Inc. is headed to the Planning Commission on Feb. 7 to pitch redevelopment plans for 3908 Elbert Avenue, currently the 29-unit Carpenters Lodgings building.
The building, originally constructed in the 1940s, was purchased by a housing nonprofit called Community Lodgings Inc. in the 1990s and maintained as an affordable housing residence.
The plan is to replace the current building with a new six-story one (one level of parking and five floors of apartments). All 91 units in the building will be affordable at a range from those making 60% of the area median income (around $59,820 annually for one person) down to those making 30% of the area median income ($29,910 annually for one person).
The building will have 64 parking spaces — above the minimum 60 spaces required — with 15 passenger van parking spots and 30 bicycle parking spots.
The development is part of a pair of affordable housing redevelopments that received financing from the City of Alexandria earlier this year.
