Hunter Mill Assemblage/ARA Newmark

An investment advisory firm has scheduled a Thursday informational meeting for those interested in purchasing up to 68 acres of land off Hunter Mill Road near the Dulles Toll Road.

ARA Newmark is advertising two properties in what it is calling the Hunter Mill Assemblage — 46 acres west of Hunter Mill Road and 22 acres east — for possible residential or other development. The property west of the road borders Sunset Hills Road to the south, while the property east of the road abuts the Dulles Toll Road. The latter is the former home of the Golf Park at Hunter Mill.

According to an email from ARA Newmark advertising the meeting, the properties are the last unplanned parcels on the Toll Road and offer “unparalled development opportunity” to a buyer or buyers:

“After a multigenerational family ownership, these Properties will be offered to the open market for the first time. [The Hunter Mill Assemblage], consisting of two tracts of 46 and 22 acres, is located on the north side of The Dulles Toll Road on both the East and West sides of Hunter Mill Road. The tracts are being offered separately but may be purchased together.”

The land was owned for decades by the Thoburn family.

ARA Newmark says the land’s usage could include residential development, mixed-use development, an assisted-living facility, a religious institution, a private school or something else. According to the material from ARA Landmark, offers to buy the properties must be in by April 21.

Property behind the former golf park site is already seeing heavy construction work, as it will soon become the new campus of Oakcrest School, a private girls’ school. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints also has plans for a 16,500-square foot church at the intersection with Crowell Road. Defense contractor General Dynamics is also putting its new headquarters nearby on Sunset Hills Road.

Roundabouts are being considered for several intersections along Hunter Mill Road to handle increasing congestion in the area.

The meeting, which is limited to qualified buyers who have signed a confidentiality agreement, is scheduled for Thursday at 10 a.m. at 1420 Spring Hill Road in Tysons.

    I hope the Sierra club buys it and leases it back to local schools so that kids can learn sustainable farming methods and grow their own foods at zero cost to the tax payer.

    Although with limited tax revenues for the leftist government of Ffx.

      It will probably be used for high rise apartments like the rest of the newer developments

    Overall success here would depend upon the long-overdue adjustment of the Hunter Mill-267 interchange. But I’m not assuming the County is about success for anyone but their favored developers. The Thoburns best take care to see to the “right” folks lest the County come inspecting their landscaping and toss someone in jail. (County bureaucrats should have been jailed for that disgrace.)

    If the plot to the east of HM Rd is supposed to be twice as large as the plot to the west, why is it depicted in the reverse on the graphic?

      That was a typo on my behalf. Thank you for pointing it out so I could get it fixed.

    Aw man… I always loved the old house on the corner of Hunter Mill and Crowell, with the stacks of firewood out front for sale. That neighborhood was always so cute.
