The nonprofit developer of affordable housing at the Arlington Mill site will hold a lottery among applicants to determine the order of its first potential tenants on a waiting list.
The leasing office for the 122-unit Arlington Mill Residences will accept wait-list applications from Aug. 27 to Aug. 31 for the lottery. Applications received after Sept. 1 will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Applications will not be accepted before Aug. 27.
Adjacent to the soon-to-be-opened Arlington Mil Community Center and Glen Carlyn Park, the residences are billed as a four-story, family-friendly building with a community room and underground parking.
The Arlington Mil Residences, 901 S. Buchanan St., will be complete later this year. The nonprofit Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing is the developer.
Twelve apartments will be "barrier free," according to a news release. A wing with eight efficiencies will be available for those "hardest to house," the release states. All units will be available to individuals and families earning 60 percent or less of the area median income — about $64,000 for a family of four. Ten percent of the units will target very-low income families earning 40 percent or less of the area median income.
The units are committed to be affordable for 75 years.
The temporary leasing office, at 1001 S. Frederick St., Apt. 1031, will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Its phone number is 703-566-6213.
