UPDATE: Crescent-Lake Anne Redevelopment
Regrettably, Fairfax County has been advised by the Lake Anne revitalization project's primary developer, Lake Anne Development Partners (LADP), that their public-private partnership with the County to redevelop the Crescent Apartments and the Lake Anne Village Center may not be feasible. While such situations are not uncommon in large, complex developments, the County and LADP are deeply disappointed by this turn of events and share the frustration that we know the community must be feeling.
As next steps, the County will begin deliberatons about the longer-term implications for the future of the Crescent redevelopment site. At this time, the County is not prepared to predict when or how we will proceed with redevelopment of the projet. An announcement from Supervisor Hudgins can be read here.
