In 2012, the Arlington Presbyterian Church approached APAH to create a space that would both provide affordable housing and serve as a place of crossroads and connection for the community. The congregation selected the name Gilliam Place to honor Ronda Gilliam (1906-1970), a church elder who was a steward and visionary in the community. Learn more about how Arlington Presbyterian Church made their decision.
Gilliam Place’s 173 new affordable units will include 11 barrier-free units to meet the needs of persons with disabilities. Learn more by reading our Gilliam Place Property Investor Sheet.
Construction began in summer 2017, and Gilliam Place is expected to be completed in mid-2019. Prospective residents can learn more here.
Westover is a vibrant neighborhood in northwest Arlington. Since it is a highly attractive place to live, the neighborhood is facing a critical shortage of affordable homes. APAH’s Fisher House I & II seek to address this need. APAH purchased Fisher House II’s eight buildings (68 units) in 2016 in order to preserve affordability amidst the trend of market affordable apartment demolition in Westover. Renovations for the Fisher House II buildings will begin in Spring 2018, incorporating energy and water efficient apartment features. There will be several accessible units, as well as eight units designated for permanent supportive housing, including for formerly homeless veterans.
Apartments at Fisher House II will be begin to become available in late 2018. Prospective residents can sign up for our interest list here.

American Legion Post 139: In 2016, the American Legion selected APAH to redevelop the site in Virginia Square into affordable housing.
