Mason Supervisor Penny Gross is hosting a community meeting on the project April 3, 7 p.m., at the Mason Government Center.
The property owner, listed as Medical Building Inc., is proposing an amendment to the county’s comprehensive plan to change the allowed uses on that lot from office, with an intensity of .20 FAR (floor area ratio), to residential, with a density of up to 12 dwelling units per acre.
A rezoning application – requesting the zoning designation for the property to be changed from commercial (C-3) to residential (PDH-12) – will be considered at the same time.
The project is in Mason District between the Federal Hill townhouse community, Target, and the Arlington County line.
The Fairfax County Planning Commission has scheduled a public hearing on the proposal June 15. A hearing before the Board of Supervisors will be held July 25.
If the applications are approved by the BoS, approximately 43 townhomes could be built on the site, says Katrina Newtson of the Fairfax County Department of Planning and Zoning.
One of the building’s main tenants, the Falls Church Medical Center, closed last August.
