Redevelopment of Centreville Road offices as housing proposed

A two-story office building at 3078 Centreville Road could be developed into townhouses (via Fairfax County)

An aging office park on Centreville Road could get new life as a developer moves to replace the property with a residential development.

An affiliate of K. Hovnanian Homes hopes to redevelop an office building at 3078 Centreville Road and a neighboring lot into a residential development called Lincoln Park II. The new complex would have 84 stacked townhouse units and 93 traditional townhouse units.

First reported by the Washington Business Journal, the proposal aims to complement Discovery Square, a residential development to the south of the property, according to a March 1 application submitted to Fairfax County.

Owned by the McLean company Toto LLC, the nearly 94,000-square-foot existing office building was built in 2001 and is not fully leased. A second office building that got approved for the site was never built, according to the application.

In the application, the developer says the redevelopment proposal is the “best” opportunity to advance the mixed-use vision for the Dulles Suburban Center.

“As has been the situation with many suburban, non-transit-oriented office parks, the market for additional office/light industrial never fully emerged for this Property and the unbuilt portion has remained vacant for more than 20 years, despite being site plan approved for development at a similar level to its sister parcel,” David Gill, a land use lawyer representing the developer, said in a statement of justification.

The 177-unit development, if approved, would front Eds Drive and Centreville Road. A central green is planned, along with several pockets of open space.

An existing curb cut on Eds Drive and Centreville Road will be used for vehicular access.

The county is also currently reviewing another application — submitted through the Site-Specific Plan Amendment plan process — that could redevelop land south of Discovery Square into 50 townhouses and four live-work units.
