The Fairfax County Planning Commission on Sept. 24 recommended that the Board of Supervisors approve the development of a two story medical building on Evergreen Lane in Annandale proposed by Quan Q. Nguyen and Ngan T. Nguyen.
The new two-story 5,516-square foot building would replace an old 1,260-square foot one and a-half story house that Quan Nguyen has been using for a medical office for the past 30 years. According to the staff report from the Department of Planning and Zoning, the new structure would look like a single-family house.
The county’s Comprehensive Plan allows professional office uses along this portion of Evergreen Lane in existing single-family structures as long as the buildings retain the appearance of single-family houses. The existing building, constructed in the 1941, is the only one along that street that has not been replaced by a larger structure.
The Nguyen’s are seeking a zoning special exception to allow a medical facility in a residential area. The property is zoned R-5 (five residential houses per acre).
The new building would have 10 employees, including two physicians. There would be 20 parking spaces. Hours of operation would be limited to 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturdays.
The next step is a Board of Supervisors public hearing. A hearing date hasn’t been set.
