Self-storage facility proposed for Edsall Road

An illustration of the proposed storage facility. 
The Fairfax County Planning Commission, at its July 19, meeting endorsed a rezoning application to permit a “mini-warehousing establishment” to be constructed in an industrial area in Mason District.

Arcland Propery Co. has proposed a 138,000-square foot self-service storage facility on a 2.3-acre property at 5415, 5411, and 5407 Industrial Drive near the Edsall Road exit on Interstate 1-395. The property is currently occupied by a towing service and a truck and tractor rental, repair, and sales business.  

Arcland has requested approval to rezone the property from R-2 to I-6 and to increase the FAR (floor area ratio, a measure of density) from 0.5 to 1.0.

The new building would have approximately 1,150 climate-control storage units – ranging from five by five feet to 10 by 30 feet – accessible via an internal entry. The proposal calls for two entrances from Industrial Drive. The facility would be open 8 a.m.-8 p.m. daily and would have 24-hour security monitoring.

There will be a hearing on this project on July 25 before the Board of Supervisors.

Also at the July 19 Planning Commission, the commissioners approved, without discussion, a conceptual development plan for the Columbia Crossroads project in Bailey’s Crossroads.

That proposal calls for an apartment building on Columbia Pike at Moncure Avenue. Several existing buildings on Columbia Pike would be demolished, with that land used for open space and seasonal activities until redevelopment can start. The Board of Supervisors will have a hearing on that application on July 25.
