Residential mid-rise could replace office building on Dulles Technology Drive

A 348-unit apartment building is proposed on Dulles Technology Drive (via Fairfax County)

A new future could be on the horizon for an office building on Dulles Technology Drive.

Aventon Holdings II is seeking Fairfax County’s permission to redevelop the ePlus headquarters at 13595 Dulles Technology Drive in McNair with a 348-unit apartment building, according to a Dec. 29 application.

The building would be up to 75 feet, or six stories, tall with a partial basement and include 41 workforce dwelling units.

“The Applicant’s proposal seeks to reinvigorate an underutilized property and increase the housing stock in Fairfax County,” the application says.

To move forward, the county would have to rezone the property from industrial uses to a planned residential mixed-use district designation.

A 418-space parking garage is planned on the site, most of which will be screened by the residential buildings. The developer wants to reduce the number of parking spaces required per dwelling unit to 1.2.

Based on the applicant’s analysis, the project would generate roughly 669 net new vehicles trips during a typical weekday, according to the application.

A 4-foot-wide pedestrian pathway is planned next to to the apartment building to connect Dulles Technology Drive to River Birch Road, along with an 8-foot-wide shared-use trail in the stream valley linked to Merry Brook Run.

An interior courtyard in the apartment building is planned with a pool, seating areas, grilling stations and entertainment areas. For the public, an observation overlook, pergola, play mounds, benches and grilling stations would be provided.

The property includes a Resource Protection Area (RPA) and is near a 100-year floodplain — which the applicants says the project will respect. Although the building doesn’t encroach on those areas, a trail, utilities and stormwater area would encroach on the RPA.
