General Information

  • Planned construction hours:

    • M-F 7am-9pm;

    • Sat-Sun 9am -9pm;

  • Planned parking ratio: 1.15 sp/u

  • Acoustical treatment: None planned

  • Noise abatement: None planned

  • Transportation plan: None current, but a tentative hauling route has been submitted

  • There is a current application for an amendment to the site plan. This amendment is going to the County Board in November. This amendment is strictly just to modify the green building certification level from Earthcraft Virginia to LEED Silver.


Located on 11th Street N at N Vermont Street, a redevelopment an existing two-story church and adjacent surface parking lot on a 55,667 sq. ft. (1.28 acre) site consisting of two contiguous blocks with 12 townhouse units (north block) and 73 multifamily and townhouse units (south block). The project density is proposed to be 2.75 FAR for the south block and 27.15 units per acre for the north block.

The developer previously had applied for an amendment in 2020 that modified the gross floor area, site circulation, building architecture, and other related items. That was approved by the County Board in 2020 and can be seen here.

The project was approved by the County Board on February 24, 2018. The original approval of the site plan in 2018 has conditions that regulate the construction activity (found on pages 49-54 of the original approval).

However, the planned developer, NVR, will not be executing the project.  But this does not change the approval of the site plan and the property owner, Northern Virginia Church Properties LLC, may move forward with the project with another development partner.
