Construction has progressed tremendously since our last update on Oakwood Senior Residences in Fairfax County, VA!
Oakwood is part of a public-private partnership with the Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH) and the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA). The six-acre property was previously occupied by a stormwater management pond and is being redeveloped with a four story, 150-unit senior affordable apartment building.
christopher Project Manager & Associate, Eric Bogumil, has had his hands on the project since the beginning. Eric says “We’ve been working on the project since 2017 – it’s been great to watch it go from the entitlement, to the site plan, and now the construction phase. APAH has been a great steward of development and DAVIS Construction has been a great collaborator as well.”
christopher’s multidisciplinary capabilities have proven helpful in many aspects of the project, including survey stakeout and when the need for arborist services arose. christopher Landscape Architect & Associate, Laurie Beth Donnachie and team have incorporated an invasive species management plan and site monitoring on the property. This includes monthly site visits to report any invasive species that may be growing on the trees or ground and reporting back to the general contractor (Davis Construction). The neighboring properties have also been interested in these results, and our team has coordinated with them on a number of items, especially trees that are near/on the adjacent properties. She ensures the health of the trees and advises treatment or removal.
The site plan was approved in October 2021 and the site is currently under construction, with an expected completion date of Summer 2023. Progress photos from our site visit in March 2022 can be seen below:
