Breezeway motel in Fairfax City set for redevelopment

Pulte plans to demolish the building to make way for offices and residential units (via City of Fairfax)

Pulte Homes is moving forward with a redevelopment of Breezeway Motel on Fairfax Boulevard.

The project will redevelop the aging property into a neighborhood with 40 townhouses, 20 two-over-two condominium units and open space. A new commercial building with roughly 10,000 square feet of space will replace the motel, which was built in the early 1950s.

The proposal was first submitted in the summer of 2018. After several rounds of revisions, the Fairfax City Council approved the project on March 8.

Macey Kessler, a spokesperson for Pulte, declined to comment on the project, including the development timeline.

“We do not have an update to share about the development at this time,” Kessler wrote in a statement.

The commercial building will be oriented to the intersection of Fairfax Boulevard and Walnut Street, according to application materials. The specific uses has not yet been identified. 45 parking spaces for the commercial building are planned.

Pulte plans to demolish the motel first, followed by the construction of town houses and the remaining residential components of the project.

Walsh Colucci Lubeley & Walsh, the land use firm that represented Pulte during the rezoning process, called the Breezeway project “a catalyst for future redevelopment along the Fairfax Boulevard corridor.”

The firm said the redevelopment will bring road and infrastructure improvements, remove above-ground utilities, and result in “a substantial contribution” to Fairfax City’s affordable housing fund.
