SFDC is thrilled to announce that we have two very exciting groundbreakings this month (July 2020)! Both represent significant County investments in affordable housing on the Richmond Highway Corridor. Later this month, we will break ground on The Arden by Wesley Housing. This new multifamily property will feature 126 units of affordable housing one block from the Huntington Metro. Visit the project webpage for more information on the project.

Then on July 31, 2020, at 11 a.m., we invite you to join us for the North Hill Groundbreaking. Thirty years in the making, the North Hill development will convert 33 unimproved acres to 216 affordable multifamily apartments, 63 affordable senior independent living apartments, 175 market-rate townhomes, and a 12-acre public park. To read more about this exciting project, get updates on the groundbreaking plans, and watch the post-event video, visit the project’s webpage.

North Gateway/Huntington is the northernmost area of the Richmond Highway Corridor covered by SFDC. The area’s namesake, North Gateway, reflects its geographic importance, where Richmond Highway connects to the Capital Beltway and the terminus of the Yellow Line at Huntington Metro Station.

The area connects to the Eisenhower Avenue Corridor in Alexandria, home of the US District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia and the National Science Foundation, the National Harbor Convention Center and MGM Casino in Maryland, and Old Town, Alexandria.

North Gateway/Huntington is attractive to developers; two multi-family developments have delivered, with substantial planning underway for more development.

Projects in Huntington include: The Parker at Huntington Station, Huntington Avenue at Biscayne Drive, Huntington Crossing, Huntington Club Condominiums, Riverside Apartments, and other notable Huntington development information.
