The three-story office building at 301 N. Fairfax Street, just a block west of the Alexandria waterfront, could become a new residential development, Washington Business Journal first reported.

The Washington Business Journal reported that Hoffman and Associates is seeking a permit to redevelop the building as a four-story, 48-unit residential building.

The plans are headed to the Board of Architectural Review on Wednesday, July 19.

The proposal is part of a trend of developers eyeing outdated offices as potential spots for more lucrative residential development, particularly with more workers remaining remote.
