Home is where the construction is: Langley Housing undergoing improvements

By Staff Sgt. Stephanie R. Plichta 633rd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

Langley Family Housing is building new homes and renovating existing houses as part of a $350 million base housing improvement initiative.

Construction began in 2008 in the area formerly known as Bethel Manor. Currently, Langley Family Housing is divided into three neighborhoods: Jamestown Village, Frontier Crossing and Freedom Terrace, managed by Hunt Companies.

More than 1,100 units were demolished throughout the three areas and replaced with 1,049 new units, consisting of three- and four-bedroom single and duplex units. New units feature one- or two-car garages, garage door openers, ice makers and microwave ovens, among other amenities. The units are approximately 30 percent larger than the previous homes.

According to Bill Johnson, U.S. Air Force project oversight engineer, the final area under construction is Freedom Terrace, which is scheduled for completion by September 2014.

Other improvements include new roads, utilities and playgrounds. Additionally, a welcome center with a fitness room, club house, swimming pool, meeting rooms and picnic areas are available to residents.

Upon completion, the housing area will boast 795 units designated for junior enlisted personnel, 241 units for senior enlisted personnel and 161 units for officers, totaling 1,197 new and newly-renovated units in Langley Family Housing. Additionally, five percent of the new homes are designed to be handicapped accessible.

Hunt Companies also manages 233 historic units on Langley Air Force Base that received renovations over the past 12 years, bringing the total units under management on Joint Base Langley-Eustis to 1,430.
