Brian provided an email response to two questions raised at the meeting:
A land-use planner and hotel developer discussed the special exception to permit a hotel use on the vacant land known at 14530 Lee Road, Chantilly, VA. The hotel is for a medium-size, corporate business market with 100-125 rooms and small meeting rooms (30-40 people). The developer and committee discussed the two-lane bridge on Lee Road just north of the hotel site. Long & Foster Company has a development condition to expand the bridge so the hotel will provide some limited right-of-way on the road. Committee had no major objections to the application.
This an 'information only' presentation to the Sully District Council on behalf of Sun Trust Bank regarding a special exception application for a drive-in bank located in the Greenbriar Shopping Center. Although the property is located in the Springfield District, Sully District is on the north side of Route 50 and may have some input.
Sun Bank, (the "Applicant") requests approval of a special exception to permit a drive-in financial institution in accordance with Section 9-601 of the Zoning Ordinance. The application property is located approximately .25 of a mile east of the intersection of Lee Jackson Memorial Highway (Route 50) and Stringfellow Road (Route 645) on the south side of Route 50 and is further identified as a 0.529 acre portion of Fairfax County Tax Map 45-1 ((01)) Parcel 10C, (the 'Property').
The Applicant is the lessee of the Property, currently zoned C-6, Community Commercial Retail and developed with the now vacant Pizza Hut Restaurant. The Property is part of the overall Greenbriar Shopping Center, Parcel 10C, that was previously developed with various neighborhood retail uses under site plan (8012-SP-01-03).
The Applicant proposes to construct an approximately 3,200 square feet Bank with two drive-through teller windows and 21 surface parking spaces that will serve the Bank. Additionally, ten total stacking spaces (five per each drive-through lane) and an ATM on the front of the building for automated banking service to walk-up customers will be provided
The Property is located in the BR4 Stringfellow Community Planning Sector of the Bull Run Planning District (Area III) of the Comprehensive Plan and is planned for neighborhood shopping center. The maximum permitted floor area ratio for the C-6 Zoning District is .35 FAR while the existing floor area ratio of the approved overall shopping center plan (8012-SP-01-03) is .27 FAR. The proposed development includes a 3,200 square foot Sun Trust Bank with an FAR of 0.13±. The Special Exception area is .529 acres. The proposed Bank is located within an existing neighborhood shopping center and therefore is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.
Sun Trust Bank is applying for a special exemption amendment for a drive-through bank at Greenbrier Shopping Center, Chantilly. The bank will be 3200-foot facility with 21 parking spaces. Additionally, the drive-through will have ATM and teller lanes with five-car stacking capability.
The Committee recommended that the bank have a meeting with the residents just north of the shopping center about any concerns. Overall, the committee had no major issues with the special exemption application
