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.
