Fur Factory Moving to New Location at Tall Oaks Professional Building

A Tall Oaks Village Center business that is being uprooted by upcoming development won’t be moving far.

Pet grooming business Fur Factory, located on the lower level of the current village center at 12010-B North Shore Drive, will be moving across the plaza to the Tall Oaks Professional Building (12054 North Shore Drive). A permit application to lay out the new space was processed by Fairfax County earlier this week.

The Tall Oaks Professional Building is one of two buildings at the village center that will remain through the redevelopment. The two-story building is being expanded to include ground-floor retail plus additional office space.

A one-story building at 12056 North Shore Drive — which most recently housed Curves Fitness and, before that, 7-Eleven — is also staying in place but being built out. Construction activity is already taking place at that site. Paisano’s Pizza plans to move across the parking lot from its current location in the village center to that site this fall.

An employee at Fur Factory was unable Friday morning to provide any information about when the business is planning to make its move.

The redevelopment of the village center into a mixed-use development will include 156 homes, 8,500 square foot of retail and about 6,000 square feet of office space, as well as community space. It will go before Reston’s Design Review Board next week for conversation about details including landscaping, lighting, site amenities and architectural elevations.

    Its very sad to know that we support the killing of innocent animals for the purpose of adding another layer of skin to humans especially now that its so hot out.

    Thanks for reporting.
