Townhomes proposed near Westfield High School under county review

A plan to bring 144 townhomes to Westfields will head to the Fairfax County Planning Commission this spring.

The developer K. Hovanian at Gallery Park filed a rezoning application in mid-May of last year to move forward with the project, which it says “will introduce meaningful residential while defining the entrance into Westfields.”

Known as Northridge, the property is located at 15014 North Drive in Chantilly, right across the street from Westfield High School. It is one of the last undeveloped parcels in the Westfields community.

The area’s current zoning reflects the need for suburban, surface-parked office and light industrial uses. But the market did not seem to favor that zoning, according to the developer. The planning commission will consider the proposal on May 4.

“As has been the situation with many suburban, non-transit-oriented office parks, the market for additional office/light industrial never emerged for this property and it has remained vacant,” the developer said in a statement of justification.

The project was designed to navigate a large number of overhead power transmission lines around the site.

“Other uses, such as office or light industrial, would have a difficult time accommodating this constraint,” the application notes.

Driveways will be able to fit two vehicles, and open space features are planned, including fitness stations, a trillion pavilion, playground, and other play courts.

Roughly 12% of units will be marketed as affordable.
