Alex Tech pursues $8.8 million student housing project
A plan to build an $8.8 million housing facility for students at Alexandria Technical and Community College (ATCC) was revealed at an Alexandria City Council Monday night.
It would be a four-story facility with 34 four-bedroom suites, seven two-bedroom suites, a common area living room, restrooms and a kitchen.
Each floor would have laundry, common area/meeting space and a resident advisor.
