Fort Belvoir housing is privatized under the Army's Residential Communities Initiative program. The program's goal is to improve the quality of life for military families by offering safe, affordable and attractive residential communities. The intent of the program is to provide military families the same quality of life in housing as the civilians they defend. Clark Pinnacle Family Communities is Belvoir's development partner. The Army and Clark Pinnacle came together on Dec. 1, 2003, to form a new entity that owns the housing - Fort Belvoir Residential Communities LLC (FBRC). While FBRC is the owner, various members of Clark Pinnacle handle all of the day-to-day construction and operations activities. Clark Pinnacle's years of national experience in developing, constructing and managing residential communities will ensure that the military families at Fort Belvoir receive modern homes and amenities as well as exceptional services. Clark Pinnacle is a partnership between developer Clark Realty Capital of Bethesda, Md., and property manager Pinnacle of Seattle, Wash. Clark Realty Capital and affiliates are providing the development, design, construction and asset management of the housing at Fort Belvoir. Pinnacle is providing property management services for Fort Belvoir housing. Housing Registration All military members with families are required by the Department of the Army to report to the Family Housing Office as part of in-processing. Military personnel must have their permanent-change-of-station orders before they can apply for on-post housing. Fort Belvoir homes are available to active duty military members from all service branches assigned to Fort Belvoir and the National Capital Region. As new families arrive at Fort Belvoir, they will be directed to the Welcome Center where they will be greeted by a team of professionally trained housing consultants. A housing consultant will provide new families with a tour of Fort Belvoir and their potential new home. The tour includes a discussion of the history of the region and the post, and the activities and amenities residents will enjoy while living on post. The Family Housing Welcome Center is located at 5994 12th Street. Normal operating hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Web site is www.thevillagesatbelvoir.com.
