The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved plans Tuesday to replace surface parking in Lake Fairfax Business Park with a four-story hotel.
The 138-room hotel, proposed by TH Holding Company, would be built next to the headquarters of Thompson Hospitality (1741 Business Center Drive), TH Holding’s retail food and facilities management company.
TH Holding Company plans to provide 299 parking spaces, including 149 spots for hotel guests and employees. An outdoor terrace will be adjacent to the hotel’s main entrance.
Under requested rezoning approvals, the hotel will be subject to its own zoning and permit regulations, separate from Lake Fairfax Business Park. The Planning Commission unanimously approved the project on May 3, with one member abstaining from a vote.

A four-story hotel could replace surface parking in Lake Fairfax Business Park.
TH Holding Company is seeking to build a 98,500 square foot hotel with 138 rooms next to the headquarters of Thompson Hospitality (1741 Business Center Drive), its retail food and facilities management company.
Reston’s Planning and Zoning Committee will vote on the proposal on Monday, Feb. 26 at 7:30 p.m. The plan outlines 299 parking spaces, including 149 spots for hotel guests and employees. An outdoor terrace will sit next to the hotel’s main entrance and towards the neighboring office building.
The plan is designed to transition into a future street that would connect Business Center Drive to Michael Faraday Drive. Reston’s comprehensive plan proposes a local street running along the southwest border of the site.
Although redevelopment does not require this additional step, the company is designing the south side of the site in order to “easily integrate into the ultimate grid of streets,” according to the proposal.
The proposed development is expected to generate 775 weekday daily trips and 929 daily trips.
