At Fort Belvoir, Virginia, a private redevelopment company helps U.S. Army use infill to create green housing for officers

The Michaels Military Development team of The Michaels Organization has successfully completed Dogue Creek Village, a 40-home infill development at Fort Belvoir, Virginia.

The new homes in Dogue Creek Village comprises 3- and 4-bedroom residences, boasting smart Nest thermostats, dual-zone split HVAC systems, EnergyStar stainless steel appliances, private patios with fenced backyards, and achieve LEED Silver compliance.

The development—designed by Torti Gallas + Partners and constructed by CBG Building Company—includes 34 townhomes, 6 adaptable homes, a fitness center, and enhanced public greenspace, significantly improving the quality of on-post housing for the service members and their families stationed at Fort Belvoir.

The new townhomes in Dogue Creek are opening at a good time with the permanent change of station (PCS) season around the corner. These new infill homes will help reduce the wait times for service members and their families eager to find housing on post, and will improve the overall housing stock at Fort Belvoir. We look forward to continuing the partnership with The Michaels Organization and are excited to see future out-year development plans come to fruition,” said Belvoir’s Garrison Commander, COL Joshua Seagraves.

The community, which is located in Fairfax County, Virginia, is a quick 30-minute drive from the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia and the heart of Washington, DC.

Additionally, the new homes, developed as part of a long-term strategic out-year development plan by Michaels in collaboration with the Army, will significantly reduce the officer housing waitlist on-post which currently stands at 2+ years.

The Villages at Belvoir, building upon years of experience and a resident-first approach, will manage the new housing in Dogue Creek Village.
