Another building is slated to go up as part of Dulles Station, a 63-acre, mixed-use project near the Innovation Center Metro Station.
Developer DSVO Dulles is seeking Fairfax County’s approval to build a 510-unit, 525,000-square-foot apartment building with ground-floor retail, according to a Feb. 22 application submitted to the county.
The company says the proposal provides for an “even more welcoming, connected and efficient building in the heart of the Innovation Center Transit Station Area” than originally planned.
Dulles Station is currently home to retail like Vietnamese restaurant Alo Vietnam and Kabobi by The Helmand, a bistro that serves Afghan cuisine. A dental practice, financial services firm, and small storefronts such as Nazareth Market also have opened at the site.
Existing apartment complexes, such as ICON, The Mark and Camden, already house hundreds of residents.
In 2017, the county approved shifting Makers Rise and the newly proposed building from planned office space to residential with ground-floor retail or office space.
Parking will be accommodated through the existing nine-story parking structure along Carta Way. A pocket park, pool terrace, courtyard and new pedestrian mews are also planned along the site.
The application is in the first stages of the planning processes. Public hearings have not been scheduled, and the proposal has not been formally accepted for review by county staff.
