The building that formerly housed the Sunset Grille, 7250 Columbia Pike, is being renovated, and the entire inside has already been gutted. The first floor is expected to be a restaurant, and a second floor will be added with office space, although there aren’t any tenants yet. According to Fairfax County property records, the building was purchased in September by Hassan Iqubal from Burke and Herbert Bank and Trust Co. for $1.6 million.

The property at 7236 Columbia Pike, which includes two buildings, is on the market for $750,000, says Pauline Thompson of Tysons Realty. The front building, which was originally a house, had been the office of the Annandale Boys and Girls Club (ABGC) for over 50 years. It has been totally renovated inside, with upgraded bathrooms and new walls, floors, and lighting. The ABGC moved to 4216 Annandale Road in April.
The building in the rear is a three-story office building built in 1960. Tenants include a Korean Bible study group on the second floor and an acupuncture doctor, Ji Yun Yu, on the third floor. There’s a vacant office on the ground floor available for rent for $600 a month. The entire property could be leased for $2,800 a month, Thompson says.

Having two properties so close to one another come up for sale in central Annandale at the same time presents a rare opportunity for a developer interested in a larger mixed-use project, especially if the owners of the two properties in between—Foundation Fitness and Kiara Dominican Salon—were interested in selling. The block is zoned C-8, which allows a wide variety of commercial uses.
A Walgreens drug store will be built on the other side of Columbia Pike. Demolition of the old Fuddrucker’s was supposed to start in September, but at least a fence was installed around the property recently, indicating the work should get under way soon.
