The Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority (ARHA) has begun construction on Ramsey Homes, a 52-apartment, four-story building on North Patrick Street between Pendleton and Wythe streets. The original Ramsey Homes, built in 1942 with just 15 apartments, was demolished in June 2019 to make way for the new building, which will more than triple the number of units at the site.
The new development will serve families with annual incomes from 30 percent up to 60 percent of the Area Medium Income.
The property will feature approximately 6,000 square-feet of green space on the North Patrick Street side, for use as a public park and recreation area. The park will be primarily open space but will incorporate and interpret elements of the historical character and archaeological findings into the final design. The park will be owned and maintained by ARHA.
This property is currently under construction.
Scheduled to be completed no later than 2020. We will update this page as we get more information on the progress of this project including information on how to apply for residence once construction is complete. Please check back regularly.
Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
Generally, households earning up to the income limit in the table below for their household size are eligible for units participating in the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program in Alexandria but actual income limits may differ for units at Ramsey Homes.
