Fairfax County board approves redevelopment of Vantage Hill condominiums

The townhouses will start in the 700s, according to the development team (Photo via Craftmark Homes).

The path to maintaining the aging Vantage Hill condominiums in Reston is officially clear.

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously on Tuesday (Dec. 6) to move forward with the redevelopment, which will replace the southwest portion of the property — an abandoned pool that closed years ago — with 28 townhouses.

The sale of the for-sale townhouses by Craftmark Homes will finance roughly $4.5 million in long-needed upgrades for the condos, a 152-complex that was built in 1962.

Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn said that without this project, Vantage Hill could have been looking at “some very difficult choices.”

“This is an example of how it really should be done when it can be done,” Alcorn said.

Alcorn — who serves on a statewide task force on aging structures — said that similar models may be applied to other areas in other districts.

“Unfortunately, many times, it’s going to be a question of swiping the site and starting over or somehow finding the funding the money for the required improvements,” he said.

Revenue generated from the sale of the townhomes is expected to finance new windows and doors, upgraded heating, new plumbing, a bigger playground, and metered electrical service for each unit.
