Alexandria Housing Development Corporation has announced the acquisition of a US$ 51.4M loan for the implementation of a project for the renovation of Park-Vue in Alexandria, a city in the United States state of Virginia.
The property, which reportedly provides studios, one- and two-bedroom units ranging in size from 465 to 890 square feet, will be converted into dedicated affordable housing for households earning up to 60% of the regional median income.
Half of the apartments will allow households to earn up to 80% of the AMI, while the other half will stay at 60% of the AMI. If the price of a 60% AMI unit exceeds the rental rate, the unit will be converted to the appropriate level at that time.
Present residents of the Park-Vue in Alexandria will be able to keep their current rent without an increase if their current rent is greater than 60% of the region’s median income.
