The construction of a 137-unit condominium in the City of Fairfax — The Flats at Boulevard VI — is officially complete.

The condominium building is part of Boulevard VI, a mixed-use community by developer IDI on the former site of Paul VI High School in Fairfax.

Residents have started moving into the building, the developer announced on Friday (Jan. 20).

“We’re excited to see the plans come to life and to see the response to this new community,” IDI Managing Director Enrico Cecchi said. “The fact that The Flats outsold every other new home community in the region in 2021 and that there are only a few homes left as we open is a much appreciated testament to the vision we had for what this important site could be.”

The Boulevard VI development was approved in 2018 for 115 townhouses, seven single-family homes, the condominium building, 20,000 square feet of retail and commercial space, and 24,000 square feet of office and community space.

Work is still underway. IDI is selling two retail pads to two separate buyers. The first pad will feature a 20,000-square-foot Learning Experience, an early childhood learning and daycare center. The second pad will likely include a mix of retail operations, according to the company.

IDI says the condominium community is intended to “ground the community in both the history and the present of its surroundings.” The 18.5-acre parcel of land owned by the Catholic Diocese of Arlington was previously occupied Paul VI and Fairfax High Schools, along with George Mason University.

The building includes a fitness center, a party room, club room, work station, a fire pit, and an outdoor pool.
