More Information About Parkfairfax

 ParkfairfaxParkfairfax sounds like a community that's been mashed together between a park and Fairfax Virginia but it's actually it's own neighborhood in Alexandria. It's located in the northwestern corner of the city near the boundary with Arlington County. The neighborhood consists of 1684 townhouse-style condominium apartments in more than 200 distinct buildings on over 130 acres. These condominiums, brick cell architecture, and beautiful townhouses were built between 1941 and 1942 by Metropolitan Life Insurance Company of New York. Pres. Franklin Roosevelt requested these to be built to provide housing near the Pentagon. This community is listed on both the National Register of Historic Places and of the Virginia Landmarks Register. The name is similar to those of other metropolitan Life projects that use local names preceded by "Park" such as Parkchester, ParkLaBrea, and ParkMerced. However, Parkfairfax is not actually a part of Fairfax County.

Parkfairfax has undergone a lot of changes over the years. It was originally on 202 acres and was the only metropolitan Life project to have no high-rise buildings. Several prominent folks have called Parkfairfax home. Former Pres. Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford both lived in Parkfairfax for a time when they were in Congress and Secretary of State Dean Rusk also lived in this community. And from 1977 to 1979, Parkfairfax was renovated and sold as condominium apartments by the IDI Group Companies.

The neighboring community of Shirlington is the primary source of restaurants, markets, stores, bars, theaters, cinemas, and other activities for folks that live in Parkfairfax. The Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Trail is within walking distance for most residents along the pedestrian walkway that crosses the Shirlington Circle interchange with Interstate 395. Residents can also find great shopping and dining at The Village at Shirlington.
