The Residences at North Hill

The North Hill property consists of approximately 33 unimproved acres off of Richmond Highway in the Mount Vernon District of Fairfax County. Through the Public Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002 (PPEA), Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority is able to pursue a public-private partnership that will transfrom North Hill into a mixed income, affordable and market rate housing community comprised of multifamily rental apartments and for-sale townhomes.

  • 219 affordable and workforce apartments
  • 60 affordable independent living units for seniors
  • 175 market rate townhomes
  • 12 acre public park

In total, 61 percent of the housing units will be affordable. North Hill is expected to break ground in Fall 2019.

This project has been funded and will begin construction soon.

Construction is scheduled to start Fall 2019. 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.

The Residences at North Hill Details

  • 279 bedroom units.
  • Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

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.
