New Development Meets County Housing, Business Needs

From Fairfax County Government:

Workforce housing provides our young people, entry level professionals, and lower income employees an affordable option for living near their jobs. This is not only convenient, but environmentally sound and less expensive than living far from work and having a long commute, thus contributing to our area's transportation challenges. Fairfax County business leaders have called a lack of affordable workforce housing a major impediment to their growth. In Fairfax County, we identified significant interest in creating affordable housing near the Government Center when we conducted surveys of our County employees several years ago.
