Annandale: Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance
On July 13, 2010, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved the Annandale Community Business Center Comprehensive Plan Amendment (ST10-CW-2CP). The Plan Amendment covers approximately 200 acres, including all of the Commercial Revitalization District (CRD).
The Plan uses a new form-based approach that provides flexibility by using building form and height to guide development instead of floor area ratios (FARs). The land use guidance recommends a proactive and comprehensive transformation of the existing, suburban form into a walkable, urban, and active mixed-use center. Innovated urban design, streetscape, placemaking, and context-sensitive techniques are also included. These techniques will enhance street presence, integrate a diversity of land uses, and create distinct built form along the streetscape. The built form will relate to a network of usable and public urban plazas and parks at a variety of scales and functions, and utilize planned transit services and facilities. These design and transportation elements will contribute to and establish a cohesive and unique identity, and support revitalization efforts in Annandale.
