Selling Land for Affordable Housing

Selling Land for Affordable Housing

Approximately 200 commissioners of the National Capital Presbytery gave unanimous approval on Jan. 27 for Arlington Presbyterian Church to sell its property to the Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH) to build approximately 140 units of affordable housing on the church site along Columbia Pike.

APAH will be seeking the necessary financing and land use approvals during 2015, with hopes of closing on the property in July 2016. The church will continue to worship in the building until that time.

The church has the right of first refusal to lease back the street-front retail space from APAH in the new building where the church now stands.
