AHC Opens 113-Unit Affordable Housing Community in Alexandria

Affordable housing developer AHC Inc. has announced that The Spire, a 113-unit affordable housing community in Alexandria, will start welcoming new residents on April 1, 2021.

The community consists of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Amenities include underground parking, a community room, a fitness center and a landscaped terrace. Each home features Energy Star-certified kitchen appliances and individually controlled high-efficiency HVAC systems. Rent packages at the community range from 40 to 60 percent of the area median income. The project was designed by Cunningham-Quill and constructed by Harkins Builders.

“Throughout the planning phases of all our developments, we keep resident quality of life front and center,” said John Welsh, VP of multifamily development at AHC. “That not only includes their experience inside their apartments and in the common areas, but also in their neighborhoods. The Spire has close access to transit systems and jobs to further stimulate professional and personal growth for everyone living in this new community.”
