In order to meet the growing demand of the wartime federal workforce and at the request of President Roosevelt, the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company of New York purchased just over 200 acres on the western end of Alexandria in 1941. A total of 286 apartment buildings were then built, offering 15 different floor plans. The Parkfairfax began as a rental community for these many federal workers.
The units were converted to condominiums in 1977, originally selling between $27,000 to $54,000. Parkfairfax counts Presidents Richard Nixon and Ford among its previous residents. In 1999, Parkfairfax was named to the National Register and the Virginia Landmarks Register as a Historic District.
Parkfairfax offers three swimming pools, two volleyball courts, eight tennis courts, playgrounds, exercise facilities, a library, and rental party rooms. Residents enjoy Parkfairfax’s leafy community with rolling hills, great for walking. Social events include a monthly book club meeting, an annual wine and cheese social, and Christmas tree lighting. There are more than ten active committees within Parkfairfax, ranging from activities to buildings and utilities; from finance to transportation and land use.
