Planning Commission approves Home Depot expansion

Building supplies piled up in the Home Depot parking lot.
The Fairfax County Planning Commission on Nov. 13 endorsed a proposal to allow the Home Depot in Seven Corners to expand into vacant retail space next door.

At a public hearing on the proposal last week, attorney Andrew Painter of Walsh Collucci, representing Home Depot, said the expansion is necessary because have been complaints about the store using the parking lot for storage. He said it’s one of the busier Home Depots – attracting shoppers from a broad region – and also smaller than many others. The store also plans some interior remodeling.

The Mason District Land Use Committee and Bailey’s Crossroads Revitalization Corporation have already approved the project. It now goes to the Board of Supervisors for a final vote.


  1. I wish Fortune restaurant could be relocated and the building torn down. Accessibility and parking would be much improved.

  2. This business about inventory being stored on the Home Depot parking lot is little more than another example of Janet Hall's inability to see the bigger picture. We've been seeing the fastidious side of her ever since she was unwisely appointed as Mason District rep. to the Panning Commission. If she's that committed to tidiness, I invite her to extend her crusade to the Annandale Giant where too many of the aisles are blocked by product displays.

  3. ^ interior clutter is not the same as outdoor clutter/storage.
