The City of Alexandria's Office of Housing reports half of its affordable housing units were lost in the past ten years. Land scarcity, rising housing prices and the new building boom have decimated Alexandria’s affordable housing stock. Prices for those new condominiums start at $600k and the townhomes at $1 million. The city’s lower and middle-income families are feeling the squeeze as a tightening housing market is pushing up rents. Susan Hale Thomas talks to Cheryl Malloy, Nisa Harper and Cathy Puskar about the affordable housing situation in Alexandria.
