Andrew Painter, Shareholder, Set to Instruct at George Mason University’s Costello College of Business


Firm Shareholder, Andrew Painter, will instruct a course on the history of development in Northern Virginia for the Center for Real Estate and Entrepreneurship at George Mason University’s Costello College of Business.  Andrew works in the firm’s Land Use and Zoning practice group, where he focuses on securing zoning entitlements across Northern Virginia, including Arlington County, Fairfax County, Loudoun County, the City of Falls Church, the City of Fairfax, and the Town of Leesburg. A native of Northern Virginia, Andrew has spent much time traveling and writing about the region’s land development history and received an award from the Virginia Chapter of the American Planning Association for his review of enduring rural landscapes in Fairfax County.

At the lecture, Andrew will cover questions such as: How did the built environment of Northern Virginia develop into the places we live, work, and entertain in today? How did residential communities develop, from the early settlement of Arlington through the emergence of postwar communities in Fairfax during the 1940s and 1950s to the establishment of large-scale communities in western Fairfax and the expansive planned unit developments in Loudoun and Prince William? What lessons from the past can we learn as we work to develop the region’s future?
