Affordable housing developer APAH is finalizing the exterior of Queens Court, a 249 unit apartment building built exclusively for subsidized housing. The residential tower replaces 39 subsidized garden-style apartments, and will be restricted to those making 80% or less of the area medium income, with set-asides for those making as low as 40% of the AMI.
Arlington acquired the 1-acre hilltop site in 1995, and broke ground in April of 2019 with a projected cost of $80m for the project. The 12-story building on the western edge of Rosslyn will have views over the Potomac River and Georgetown University.
