Saving Homes, Keeping a Community Intact

Clarendon Court was originally built around the 1940’s, and in 1993, Arlington County helped refinance the property making it affordable to low-income working families. In 2016, Enterprise Community Loan Fund used financing through Our Region, Your Investment to provide McCormack Baron Salazar a $1.5 million predevelopment loan, supporting their acquisition of the property.

McCormack Baron Salazar made a commitment to: 

  • Keep all homes at Clarendon Court affordable for another 75 years 
  • Increase the affordability of a number of homes 
  • Reserve 10 homes for people who are chronically homeless
  • Renovate the property to include green features that will help create a healthier living environment for residents

100 Years of Affordability

Arlington County’s original engagement in 1993 and its continued commitment to seeing that the property remains affordable means that homes at Clarendon Court will be affordable for at least 100 years.
