Life has a funny way of going full circle. The photo at the left was taken sometime in 1948 in the Parkfairfax neighborhood in Alexandria VA. In the photo are my mom and paternal grandparents. This was my parent’s first home when they moved to the DC area. Parkfairfax was originally built to fulfill the need for affordable housing close to the Federal Government, Pentagon and DC in 1941; many residents were involved in the war efforts during WWII.
In 1968 the apartment buildings were sold to a new development company and were remodeled with new kitchens and room AC units. From the late 1960's through the mid-1970's Park Fairfax was mostly forgotten. Fortunately the multiple attempts to tear down the buildings and replace them with high-rise apartments were unsuccessful. Then in 1977 IDI, a major local development company purchased the land for over 24 million dollars and began the conversion of apartments to condominiums. Original sales prices ranged from $27,000 to $54,000. Today prices range from the low 200's to high 300's.
Parkfairfax set on 132 acres is known for it's rolling hills tree lined streets and red brick buildings. The community has an abundance of amenities including 3 swimming pools, 8 tennis courts, party rooms, exercise room and 2 volleyball courts. Parkfairfax also has the distinction of being the former of home of two past presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. Both lived in the community prior to taking the highest office in the land. Parkfairfax is now on the Historic Register of Historic Places.
Today my daughter and her husband call Parkfairfax home. Their first home since moving to the DC area from the UK. Though they don't live in the same unit that my parents did the reasons for choosing the neighborhood are similar. They can walk across the pedestrian bridge to the shops of Shirlingon. When they enjoy a meal at the Carlyle restaurant in Shirlington they are eating in the same building where my mom worked as a manager when the building was Jelliff's department store.
Residents can catch a bus at multiple locations in the community to head to DC, the Pentagon or either the King Street or Pentagon City metro stations. Since my daughter and her husband don't own a car, almost unheard of in Northern Virginia, that should give you an idea of how convenient a location Parkfairfax is.
