The Heritage Project Approved by The Alexandria Council

The controversial Heritage at Old Town development project will move forward following unanimous approval by the Alexandria City Council at its Feb. 20 public hearing. Despite reservations expressed by some Council members, the addition of new affordable housing units was the determining factor in the decision to give the green light to New York-based Asland Capital Partners to develop several blocks in the Southwest quadrant of Old Town.

According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, "Asland Capital Partners acquired the 136,800 square-foot campuses, originally built in 1978, in November of 2019. The project will increase the existing 244 units to 750 units, reduced from the original proposal of 842 units. The Heritage extends west from S. Columbus Street to S. Patrick Street and south from Wolfe Street to Gibbon Streets. At present, The Heritage consists of 140 affordable housing units and 104 market-rate units. The new development will increase to 195 the number of affordable housing units while market-rate units will increase to 555." As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, "Prior to the Feb. 20 public hearing, 173 letters and emails were sent to council members with 42 speakers registered to comment on the project. Many were in opposition to the project, questioning its appropriateness for Old Town. Developers will return to the BAR to review the architecture and design of the buildings with initial relocation of existing tenants slated to begin in November 2021."
