Working together, nonprofit developer AHC Inc. and the City of Alexandria successfully transformed three acres previously owned by St. James United Methodist Church into a vibrant, mixed-use, mixed-income community with an onsite preschool operated by The Campagna Center. The site will also include 31 market-rate townhomes constructed by Craftmark. Families began moving into St. James Plaza in mid-March.

The Alexandria City Council unanimously approved a proposed 113-unit affordable housing development – a partnership between AHC Inc. and the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection. In addition to the development approvals, the City Council also unanimously endorsed a loan of up to $9 million to help facilitate the project as well as a grant of $350,000 to provide rental assistance to make 12 units deeply affordable.
