Sekas Homes plans to build 11 single-family homes on McKenzie Avenue in the Legato area of Fairfax.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the developer’s request to rezone the 6.5-acre property yesterday (Tuesday). The site currently houses three single-family units and is mostly covered with trees and vegetation.
The developer’s representative, Lori Greenlief of the law firm McGuireWoods, called the proposal a classic example of infill development that is compatible with the surrounding residential developments.
“Along with creating a compatible development, a goal of this development proposal was to deal with the topography on the site as well as the mature stance of the vegetation,” she said.
Braddock District Supervisor James Walkinshaw said the project provides features that can benefit surrounding neighborhoods, including open space.
“I am enthusiastic about this. I think it’s going to be a good project,” Walkinshaw said.
The board approved the project with little fanfare. A public street is proposed in the center of the property. Lot sizes will range between 13,000 to 21,200 square feet.
Each unit will have a two-car garage and driveways that can provide two additional parking spaces. A total of four parking spaces would be provided for each unit in addition to the driveway and garage.
The developer plans to contribute 0.5% of its projected sales price for each unit to the Fairfax County Housing Trust Fund.
The property is surrounded by single-family units with a child care center and Lee Plaza shopping center to the north.
