In November 2016, Fairfax County voters approved the Human Services and Community Development Bond Referendum which provided funding for the construction of the new Sully Community Center - to serve the Chantilly/Centreville/Oak Hill areas.
All major construction has been completed on the Sully Community Center. Crews are currently working on final finishes in preparation for opening to the public in late Summer 2022.
Project Site and Scope
The new Sully Community Center will be roughly a 36,000 square-foot facility and serve as a multi-generational facility for the surrounding communities. The updated design from summer 2019 includes an approximate 4,000 square foot Healthcare Suite addition. The facility will be constructed on approximately 5 acres located at the intersection of Wall Road and the Air and Space Museum Parkway in Chantilly - near Highlands Park.
Once completed, this new location will serve as the new home of the Sully Senior Center (currently operating in leased space in Chantilly), as well as provide a broader array of services, programs and activities for individuals of all ages and abilities.
The project is currently entering the final construction phase and is on track to open to the public in late Summer 2022.
