vPoint Apartments

The new vPoint Apartment complex was completed in December 2011 and includes 116 units with 70 affordable and 46 market-rate units, located within half a block of the Clarendon Metro Station.

The new vPoint Apartments are part of the Arlington County’s vision to be a diverse, inclusive and sustainable urban community.  The project demonstrates innovative approaches to providing affordable housing in a core urban area on several levels – incorporating innovative partnership, energy efficient and sustainable design, mixed income and mixed uses, proximity to transit, and strategies to serve a diverse tenant community.  The project also is an example of repositioning of an aging underutilized church building into a vibrant mixed-use community asset.

Residents benefit from environmentally-conscious features and products including bike storage, carpool drop-off areas, ENERGY STAR appliances, dual-flush toilets, low VBOC paints, Green Label Plus carpet and recycling center on each floor.  vPoint is expected to achieve a LEED Silver certification.

vPoint Apartments is an example of the success of the Section 1602 tax credit exchange program.  Due to a difficult tax credit market in 2009, VHDA exchanged 100% of the project’s tax credit allocation for grant funds to allow it to move forward.  As a result, hundreds of jobs were created and 116 units of wonderful, transit-oriented housing now exist!

What Others Are Saying About Us

“RPS engaged CCA in 2005 to assist in the disposition of RPS’s affordable housing portfolio, which consisted of over eighty properties, located throughout the country. The successful conclusion to our portfolio disposition is in large part attributable to Ben and David and their team at CCA. Though faced with a multitude of problems, including properties with extensive deferred maintenance, difficult regulatory agencies and severely distressed financial markets, CCA brought resolutions to our issues that were consistently satisfactory to all parties concerned. The depth and scope of CCA’s expertise in the many facets of the affordable housing industry proved invaluable. It has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with such a group of professionals.”
