County to study potential development options for Lake Anne

The county has officially begun thinking about the long-term future of Lake Anne plaza.

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved tweaking the current budget to fund a master planning and visioning study of the aging village center. The board approved $250,000 to help fund the study at a meeting last week.

The move comes after the county hired a structural engineering company to survey the village center and complete an assessment of its condominium buildings.

The county has noted that more funding is needed to master planning and to support the long-term sustainable development of Lake Anne.

The county’s Architectural Review Board is seeking a supplemental report to fill gaps of a cursory review of the plaza that flagged nearly $37 million in repairs for the aging area.

The review was conducted by the county’s Department of Public Works and Environmental Services and Samaha Associates, an architectural firm, but the ARB said it failed to account for Lake Anne’s status as a historic district, among other concerns.
