We’ve planted our first crop of the season at the Station! This first harvest, happening in May, will bring kale, lettuce, strawberries, onions, cucumbers, and fresh herbs to AHDC residents across all four properties. We are so excited to get the planting process underway again this year, and to see how much we can grow for our communities. Thanks to the team at Rooftop Roots for all they do in this garden space, and to all who’ve donated to our Spring2ACTion campaigns that help make this project a success from year to year!
Phase one of renovations at Lacy Court is nearing completion, as residents begin returning and new residents move in. After the first building (addresses 4-8 West Nelson Ave) is completed, phase two will begin (addresses 1512-1514 Commonwealth Ave), which will include a number of studio and three bedroom units as well.
We’re so excited for these newly renovated spaces to become homes once again. Lacy Court, which had never been under a renovation in it’s 60+ years, will remain affordable for years to come, with returning residents either maintaining or lowering their previous rents.
Take a look at the shots below, and stay posted for more lease up information!
AHDC is proud to announce that the “Gateway” project, a 74-unit development at the intersection of King and Beauregard, has received its new and permanent name: The Nexus, a part of the larger West Alex development.
The name ‘The Nexus’ is symbolic of where this new community is and what it will provide for residents. Office, retail, and grocery at the West Alex location will offer residents convenience at their doorsteps. At the intersection of Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax County, the Nexus provides easy access to the city, the region, and beyond. The planned West End Transitway along this corridor will connect residents to the greater West End and Old Town Alexandria. The Mark Center, Bailey’s Crossroads shopping, and NoVA Community College are all just minutes away, and it’s a short 5-mile drive to Crystal City and the future Amazon HQ2 locations.
More than just a physical connection, however, AHDC believes that ‘The Nexus’ symbolizes the role home plays as the central place of growth, connection, and relaxation. Residents will enjoy well appointed, light filled apartments, underground parking, an onsite leasing office, and automated secure package lockers. At the Nexus residents will have access to a community room and garden terrace, which will feature a grilling station, children’s play area, and indoor hosting spaces. Residents will also be able to access certain fitness amenities available in the larger West Alex development.
Be sure to check out our ad in the Spring2ACTion edition of the Alexandria Times, also shown here below. And stay tuned for more updates soon!
While at this point the Nexus is not yet accepting applications, we are so excited to be able to share more information about this new construction, including new renderings, information about pre-leasing, and more very soon. We anticipate the pre-leasing application process to begin in the next few months, and resident occupancy to begin late 2019.

Construction work continues at the West Alex site, including on the 74 units of AHDC’s affordable apartments called “The Nexus” (formerly known as “The Gateway”). Now that the building has gone vertical and has stick framing in place, it’s getting easier and easier to see what the future apartments will look like. Take a look through these shots - and stay tuned for some exciting news coming soon for this community!

In addition to the things that we know about the Braddock Road Metro area as residents and neighbors (it’s great connectivity, proximity to the future Amazon HQ2/VA Tech Campus, and vibrant street character), there’s data and numbers that back it all up as a great place to put down roots.
