Agenda for 5 December 2005 Sully District Land Use and Transportation Committee Meeting
by Jeff Parnes
- The Sully District Land Use and Transportation Committee meeting scheduled for 5 December is cancelled. We will meet next on 9 January 2006.
- Proponent: Jeff Saxe for Sully North Investments
- Action: SE to allow increase in building height and Rezoning
- Location: South side of Wall Road 800 feet west of Centreville Road
This proposal has been seen by this committee twice since 2000 in another guise. The first two times the proposal called for an change to the Comprehensive Plan to allow residential development east of the proposed spine road. The first out-of-turn Plan Amendment was withdrawn after the economic downturn following the attacks of 9-11. It was then included in area plan review conducted in 2004 but was deferred indefinitely to address student generation issues. Both times it has been endorsed by this body. This proposal is essentially the same, but the housing to the east of the spine road is now proposed to be limited to adult age restricted housing in conformity with HUD guidelines. This eliminates any student generation by the residential component and allows the development to go forward, as the residential component is less than 40%, without a plan amendment.

- Sully District Council Development Criteria Checklist
Jim Neighbors, the Sully Station HOA representative to the Sully District Council, developed this Development Criteria Checklist. It has been subsequently modified and posted for the use of the Land Use and Transportation Committee. We encourage suggestions on how to make it a more useful tool. It is not intended to indicate that the issues listed here are the only items of concern to the SDC, but as an aid to the members of the SDC in evaluating a proposal presented before us. At this meeting suggested changes are welcome.

- Planned for 9 January Meeting
- Proponent: Keith Martin for Atlantic Realty Companies, the Applicant, who is working with the title owner, Global Missions Holdings, LLC.
- Action: Proffer Condition Amendment (PCA) and Final Development Plan Amendment (FDPA)
- Location: The former Dominion Power site at the intersection of Route 50 and Fair Ridge Drive
The property consists of 28.0531 acres and is currently zoned PDC. Atlantic Realty Companies and the title owner are seeking to amend the proffers and the Conceptual/Final Development Plan to permit a mixed use development consisting of a village retail center, office, church, and child care.
The amended CDP/FDP shows the mixed use development consisting of a total of 305,498 gross square feet for an overall Floor Area Ratio of 0.25. Approximately 38% of the total site area will be in open space. The proposed maximum building height will be 45 feet. The retail, church and office uses will be serviced by a minimum of 567 parking spaces.
The amended CDP/FDP shows 8 buildings comprising the 305,498 square feet. Building 1 is proposed to be a 48,736 square foot Harris Teeter grocery store. Special attention has been paid to screen the loading spaces at the rear of the building. Building 2 is proposed to be 2 stories with ground level retail and second floor offices totaling 86,565 square feet. Building 3 is proposed to be a 3,600 square foot Chevy Chase drive-in bank. Building 4 is the existing Dominion Power office building. The existing 76,577 square feet will be converted into office space, child care, health club and second floor Church use for the Light Global Mission Church. Buildings 6 through 9 are 2 to 2.5 story professional offices consisting of a total of 67,500 square feet.
Careful attention is being paid to transportation circulation and development access. Access to and from Route 50 is proposed via Fair Ridge Drive and a right in western entrance and western service drive exit. A detailed traffic analysis has been submitted and reviewed by the Office of Transportation to demonstrate that the traffic generated by the development can be adequately handled on the existing road system with proffered improvements.
It is submitted that the proposed PCA and FDPA will be in substantial conformance with the Comprehensive Plan. The Application Property is the subject of Area Plan Review nomination #04-111-1FC. The nomination is pending and scheduled for public hearings in early 2006. It is anticipated that the revised Plan recommendations for this site will recommend mixed use development, including retail uses at a 0.25 FAR.
