County Board Secretly Purchases Upscale Apartment Complex for Creative Class Housing
Did you happen to watch the County Board Meeting last night? Check out the interlude around 8:30 between the end of item 43 - Pines of Italy and Chris Zimmerman's farewell speech. Just after someone from Pines of Italy calls the County Board 'c***suckers'.
The County Board approved it's secret purchase of the upscale Ballston Park Apartments from the Village of Buckingham Management Corporation. Apartment rents presently range from $1350 for an efficiency to $2400 for a townhouse. Hard to see how this will ever be 'affordable' other than as entry level housing for the Creative Class. Last middle class person in 22201 and 22203 to leave Arlington please turn off the lights before your apartment is demolished or renovated.
