The Belhaven Apartments, a multifamily residential building located at Kings Crossing in Alexandria, has completed several units for tenant move-in and actively begun leasing them.

Managed by Fairfield, The Belhaven offers studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments and has a limited number of units available under Fairfax County’s Workforce Dwelling Unit affordable housing program.

According to Fairfield’s vice president of property management, Greg Morehead, additional apartments will become available in phases over the coming months as construction is completed. The five-story, 350-unit complex located on just over five acres of land is distinguished by its “green living” features, said Morehead, including car-charging stations, USB outlets and EnergyStar appliances, as well as its use of sustainable building materials.

All the building’s amenities — including the pool/spa, fitness center, pet spa, clubroom, business center, fireplace lounge and courtyard — are ready for usage, added Morehead, though contractors are still putting the finishing touches on the property’s exterior. There is a 7-foot-wide sidewalk and 6.5-foot-wide protected bike lane in front of the building. A 560-space parking garage is accessible from Fairview Drive.

The Belhaven has a sidewalk, bike lane and landscaping along Richmond Highway.

Before The Belhaven’s construction, the site housed a Wendy’s, Pizza Hut, TitleMax and Before and After School Martial Arts. In July 2017, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved Novus Property Holding’s application to build a multifamily residential building at Fairview Drive and Richmond Highway. Two years later, Novus’ parent company, Cafritz Interests, sold the property to Fairfield, which changed the name of the planned apartment complex from Novus Kings Crossing to The Belhaven.

The Belhaven is located at 6375 Richmond Highway in Alexandria.
