Arlington County has over 8,000 units with income restrictions, and that number has been growing since 2015.
Saturday morning the county unveiled its newest units, called Columbia Hills, in South Arlington. A small group of potential residents were given sneak peek tours through studio and two-bedroom apartments, as well as the common areas and rooftop terrace.
The building is part of Arlington's Affordable Housing Master Plan, which aims to increase the supply of fixed income units from 2015 until 2040, as well as preserve affordable housing.
"If we want to try and have a community that's diverse and inclusive and sustainable, part of that sustainability, inclusivity, and diversity is trying to increase housing options for folks that have a wide range of incomes," said David Cristeal, Arlington County's housing director.
Columbia Hills' ribbon cutting is set for January.
