A developer is proposing to turn a park into affordable housing.
Project renderings show a five-story building at 6858 Richmond Highway, which is next to The Beacon of Groveton luxury apartments.
It would create up to 52 age-restricted units, an interior courtyard, fitness areas and conference as well as community rooms, according to a proposal called Beacon Hill Senior Housing recently made available through a public portal May 4.
The property would have a parking garage. It wasn’t immediately clear if all of the property’s 34 spaces would all be inside the garage.
The developer is listed as “RH Senior Housing LLC.” Its address is the same as that of the nonprofit NFP Affordable Housing Corp, based in Bethesda.
A lawyer for the applicant didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
The proposal will require Fairfax County to approve rezoning applications and amendments.
The county previously approved a mixed-use development for the site in 2009. That involved the possibility for approximately 70,000 square feet of office and retail uses with buildings up to 85 feet in height, according to a statement of justification by the developer’s attorneys.
The proposed building would be approximately 65 feet, the attorneys wrote.
