The Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority announced plans on Nov. 9 to redevelop the Samuel Madden Homes public housing community, located off of Route 1, transforming it from a 66-unit complex to a mixed-use and mixed-income rental community with affordable housing.

The project, which involves work from developers Fairstead, Mill Creek Residential and The Communities Group, will be proposed as two buildings with courtyards, a pool, exercise rooms and indoor and outdoor community rooms. It also includes plans for a 10,000 square-foot public park with a playground and public art, a food pantry, retail space and daycare center operated by Hopkins House.

According to the release, one third of all apartments in the project will be designated for low-income households and another third for working households.

ARHA and the developers involved in the project plan aim to submit a concept plan to the city in 2022.
