On December 5, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a motion to initiate a review of a development proposal for 11260 Roger Bacon Drive, adding it to the county’s existing Comprehensive Plan Amendment Work Program. This project is one of three currently on KGD’s boards for studies commissioned by Bailey’s Star to redevelop existing commercial assets and parcels into mixed-use/housing opportunities. The Roger Bacon Drive project has a preliminary plan that pitches its redevelopment for approximately 275 units with 3,000 SF of ground-floor retail. The concept for its redevelopment and potential amendment for such to occur would also include a planned grid of streets linking Roger Bacon Drive, Michael Faraday Court, and Lake Fairfax Business Center. This would be in support of the county’s comprehensive plan which currently envisions a pedestrian-oriented environment with mid and-high-rise buildings and a mix of uses, including ground-floor retail.
