Developer wanting to build condos in Woodstock

Woodstock could be getting new housing.

Developer HAF Real Estate is attempting to build a housing unit of eight attached townhouse type buildings, each of which would house two condominiums.  This transitional style housing is called stacked condominiums

“You see this a lot in Fairfax and Loudoun counties,” Ayman Nahas, who represents HAF Real Estate, said.

“We feel this is the right product for this area.”

The building has eight sections and each section has two condominiums, Nahas said.

Each section has its own entryway. Materials will vary as well with color tones from two similar color palates, gray siding with red brick and tan siding with brown brick.

The condominiums will be about 1,280 in square feet and governed  by a homeowners association.

The developer would like to build a total of three such buildings on its property on Woodstock Commons Drive, just behind Dupont Community Credit Union.

The stacked units will require the town to rezone that area to high-density housing and authorize a special use permit.

“Townhouses are currently approved and platted in that location under a previous zoning classification, however, because of the new product proposed, it is necessary to move through the public process,” Woodstock town manager Angela Clem said.

HAF Real Estate is hoping  its new product will appeal to buyers.

The company currently has 14 townhouses in the area of Hotchkiss Drive with land for 60 units remaining to be developed.
