About the Project

The applicant, Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH), proposes constructing  a five-story, 104-unit apartment building with a 5,600 square-foot ground floor office for APAH, a change to the General Land Use Plan (GLUP) and a rezoning. The project would demolish an existing 27-unit, three-story garden apartment building, which was constructed in 1963 and has 21 committed affordable units.

Proposed project details:

  • The requested GLUP change would re-designate the site from “Low-Medium Residential,” which permits apartments at a density of 16-36 units per acre, to “High-Medium Residential Mixed-Use,” which permits residential density (with associated office and/or retail) of up to 3.24 F.A.R, in accordance with the recommendation of the North Quincy Street Plan Addendum;
  • The rezoning would reclassify the site from “RA8-18,” which permits apartments of up to 36 units per acre, to “R-C,” which permits residential density (with associated office and/or retail) of up to 3.24 F.A.R; and
  • The five-story, 104-unit apartment building would provide 111 parking spaces and a 5,600-square-foot headquarters office for APAH;  96 (or 92%) of the dwelling units will be affordable to households earning less than 60 percent of area median income.
