Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Approves Tysons Office Conversion




















On March 19, 2024, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved a rezoning and proffered condition amendment application to allow the conversion of the existing office building located at 8221 Old Courthouse Road into a multifamily residential building with up to 55 dwelling units.

Walsh Colucci land use attorney Bob Brant and land use planner Bernard Suchicital guided the team through the application process, which included coordination with County staff and outreach to neighboring communities.  In addition to the adaptive reuse of the building, the project will introduce a significant amount of new public and private open space, add significant improvements to the streetscape and pedestrian realm along Old Courthouse Road and Lord Fairfax Road, and decrease the amount of impervious surface on site. 

The project also results in a significant reduction of the existing surface parking lot that surrounds the building, by utilizing the reduced parking rates that are now available following Fairfax County’s approval of Parking Reimagined last year.  Located in the Tysons, residents of the new building will have convenient access to the growing number of retail destinations, dining options, and other amenities in the area. 

The approval represents the latest in a series of recent approvals involving the conversion of aging commercial buildings.  In January 2024, the Walsh Colucci team secured the necessary approvals to allow the conversion of the former Tysons Sheraton Hotel to residential use.   Please contact us regarding any of your land use needs in Fairfax County, or throughout the region.
