Here comes another redevelopment plan for Sunrise Valley Drive south of the Dulles Toll Road.

Lincoln Property Co. has a Fairfax County Planning Commission public hearing Wednesday for its proposal to turn three acres of parking lot into 260 multifamily residences.

Lincoln at Commerce Park/Credit: Fairfax CountyThe site is bounded by Sunrise Valley, Commerce Park and Association drives, and is very close to where CESC Commerce Park (Vornado) plans a 1.5 million square foot, mixed-use development. That plan, which will feature towers of 22 and 24 stories and 500 residences, has a planning commission hearing on Sept. 28.

Lincoln Property’s project is a seven-story building with trails connecting bikers and walkers to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station.

The plans call for a pool and a natural play area, among other amenities. About one-third of an acre will be devoted to pocket parks. There will be a dedicated cycle track fronting Sunrise Valley Drive.

The staff report recommends approval, but addresses concerns about the width of sidewalks and the streetscape on Association Drive and Commerce Park Drive.

The developer will make proffers to the Fairfax County Park Authority of $462,852 for athletic fields. Lincoln has offered an additional $25,000 in “recognition of Comprehensive Plan guidance for onsite publicly accessible open space,” the staff report says.

The complex will have 2 percent of units with Universal Design and 12 percent for Workforce Housing. Lincoln will contribute about $11,000 per expected pupil to Fairfax County Public Schools.

The applicant will also be responsible for building a new internal road and installing a new traffic signal at Sunrise Valley Drive and Commerce Park Drive, as well as contribute to the Reston Transportation Fund.

Read more details in the county planning staff report. The public hearing is at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday at the Fairfax County Government Center.
