Samuel Madden is currently a community made up of 66 ​public housing units across 13 buildings between N. Henry ​and N. Patrick Street​s, where Route 1 splits as it enters the city’s historic Old Town from the north.

ARHA joins development partners Fairstead, Mill Creek Residential and The Communities Group in planning to raze these buildings to construct a new gateway to Alexandria:  two new multifamily buildings which would total over 500 units with many amenities and in an environmentally sustainable community.

The goal is to create a mixed income community, where 1/3 of the units will be for low-income households earning below 30% Area Median Income (AMI), affordable units for households earning between 30%-80% AMI and market rate ​units for households with income above 80% AMI.  The project is designed to activate the greenspace around the site, add art installations to enrich the public space​, and internal courtyards to accommodate the numerous community amenities. The project will also feature ground floor retail spaces and/or services for residents and the greater community, as well as an opportunity for local business.  

 Through an active community engagement process​, ARHA​'s goal is to ensure active resident input in all decision-making.

 This project represents a key part of increasing Alexandria’s stock of affordable housing as well as adding neighborhood retail space.
