Dominion Square - CARS (RZ 2011-HM-012 & 013)
The subject properties are located to the south of Leesburg Pike. RZ
2011-HM-012, known as the West Land Bay, is located to the west of
Spring Hill Road. RZ 2011-HM-013, known as the East Land Bay, is
located to the east of Spring Hill Road and immediately abuts a Board
of Supervisors-owned parcel which contains overhead electrical
The two applications, which were filed by a single property applicant, propose to redevelop an area which is currently developed with several automobile dealerships. Under the proposed rezoning applications, the new development proposes a total of 12 structures, which include a mix of office, residential and hotel uses. The buildings would range in height from 150 to 400 feet, with the larger structures closer to the Spring Hill Metrorail station. None of the existing structures are proposed to remain.
Because the two land bays are not contiguous, two separate rezoning applications are filed but will be heard concurrently. In addition, RZ 2011-HM-027 (Sunburst at Spring Hill Metro) has been filed on property located between the two Dominion Square land bays and will be heard concurrently with these applications. RZ 2011-HM-026 (Perseus Realty) was filed on property immediately adjacent to Leesburg Pike, between the Dominion Square land bays and immediately north of Sunburst, but has been deferred indefinitely and will not be heard with concurrently with the other three. No FDP applications have been filed on the Dominion Square or Sunburst applications at this time.
Major transportation improvements proposed include the extension of Boone Boulevard. The proposal also depicts a possible circulator bus stop within the West Land Bay adjacent to the Spring Hill. Discussions regarding contributions toward the Tysons-wide and Tysons Grid of Streets transportation funds are ongoing. The proposed layout includes a full size rectangular field and several rooftop park spaces. The layout also depicts landscape improvements to the Board -owned parcel which abuts the East Land Bay. This parcel contains existing overhead electrical transmission lines and is proposed to contain a 10 foot wide bike trail which would link the Old Courthouse Spring Branch Stream Valley Park to the Spring Hill Metro Station. As part of the redevelopment, the applicant has proposed dedicating land to accommodate a new electrical substation, a critical need identified for Tysons. This substation would be located in the southern portion of the East Land Bay, straddling the Board-owned parcel and extending onto the adjacent Sunburst application land area.
Discussions regarding restoration of the Old Courthouse Spring Branch stream, LEED standards and stormwater management goals are ongoing.
