The new Alexandria Housing Development Corporation development, which will include nearly 100 units of affordable housing and a new Carpenter’s Shelter, will break ground on Aug. 29. The development, built on the longtime First Street location of the Carpenter’s Shelter, will include 97 units of affordable housing called The Bloom and a new shelter.
