Adopted Plan Recommendation:
Residential use at 16-20 du/ac. Redevelopment option for residential use at 30-40 du/ac with retail and service uses.

Proposed Change:
Option for residential mixed-use up to 1.9 FAR with office, hotel, and retail.

Community Screening

Preliminary Staff Recommendation: 
PC17-PR-005 is not recommended to be added to the 2018 Comprehensive Plan Amendment Work Program. The proposed redevelopment option would effectively expand the core area of the TSA with an intensity that exceeds the planned intensity closest to the station. This would work against the established land use pattern in the suburban center and an effective taper to adjacent non-core areas.  The adopted Plan remains an appropriate level of development.

Task Force Meeting:

Providence Community Center
3001 Vaden Dr., Fairfax, VA 22301

Include a modification of the original nomination on the Plan Amendment Work Program. Amend to reduce the proposed density to 1.2 FAR.
