Fairfax County Approves Laurel Hill Master Development Plan

At its June 3 meeting, the Board of Supervisors approved the redevelopment plan to turn the former Lorton Prison into a mixed-use community. The 80-acre site, now called the Laurel Hill Adaptive Reuse Area, is poised to become home to housing, retail and offices — pending approval of a financial deal with two developers. The site will offer up to 412 housing units and 110,000 square feet of retail and office space while preserving and reusing former prison buildings.

“I was pleased to support the re-planning and re-purposing of Laurel Hill,” said Fairfax County Chairman Sharon Bulova. “Fairfax County’s purchase of the former Lorton Prison has provided the opportunity to create a vibrant community in the South County area. Providing attractive tax-producing residential and retail uses is a real victory and the right decision for our board.”

The board will take action on the financial deal with the developers, The Alexander Company and Elm Street, on July 29. These two companies will redevelop the site under a legal agreement with the county.
