Site Specific Plan Amendment #SSPA-I-1MS, concerns approximately 203 acres within the Merrifield Suburban Center consisting of Land Unit K and portions of Sub-unit I1 and Land Unit J (Tax Map Parcels 49-4 ((1)) 57, 71, 73, 73A1, 73A2, 74A and 74B).

The study area constitutes two nominations for Comprehensive Plan change: Inova Center for Personalized Health (ICPH) on Land Unit K and Fairview Park (portions of Sub-unit I1 and Land Unit J).

The current Plan recommends office use at an intensity up to 0.35 Floor-Area Ratio (FAR) on the ICPH nomination area and office, accessory retail and public park uses on the Fairview Park nomination area. The authorization directed staff to consider mixed-use development up to an intensity of 1.0 floor area ratio (FAR) on the ICPH nomination site and intensity between 0.80 FAR to 1.0 FAR (since reduced to a proposed intensity of 0.65 FAR) on the Fairview Park nomination area.

The ICPH nomination proposes an academic and research campus with additional housing, hotel, and commercial uses; the Fairview Park nomination proposes residential office, hotel and other uses. The proposed SSPA was reviewed by a community task force. Please review This direct link to the staff report.
