Tysons East townhouse proposal deferred indefinitely after resident pulls support

(Updated at 2 p.m.) The townhouse development planned along Seneca and La Salle avenues just inside the Dulles Toll Road in Tysons East has been put on hold indefinitely after an existing resident withdrew their support for the project.

In a June 17 letter, a legal representative for developer Toll Brothers notified the Fairfax County Planning Commission of the need to indefinitely defer its proposal for a Seneca Assemblage complex.

“The deferral will allow the Applicant an opportunity to assess the withdrawal of [Tax] Map Parcel 30-3 ((2)) 224A from the application,” wrote Elizabeth Baker, a senior land-use planner for Walsh, Colucci, Lubeley & Walsh. “This change in circumstance will alter the layout shown on the submitted conceptual/final development plan.”

The relevant parcel is on Seneca Avenue on the west side of the proposed development, which was supposed to bring 48 townhouses and new parks to a 3.8-acre site currently occupied by about a dozen detached single-family homes.

The developer had already reduced the number of planned units from its original proposal put forward in September in order to accommodate one resident on La Salle Avenue who intends to stay in their house.

The planning commission granted Toll Brothers’ deferral request last night (Wednesday), when the application had been scheduled for a public hearing.

“Without the landowner’s consent, this public hearing cannot go forward,” Providence District Commissioner Phil Niedzielski-Eichner said.

A Toll Brothers spokesperson said no one is currently available to respond to FFXnow’s request for additional comment.

On a separate note, Niedzielski-Eichner announced that the planning commission’s Tysons Committee will meet on July 14 to discuss accessibility, particularly in urban areas like Tysons and Reston.

“Staff will update the committee on progress made this past year on addressing accessibility and Americans with Disabilities Act compliance concerns” that had been originally raised by a Tysons resident, Niedzielski-Eichner said.
