Fairfax Towne Center is a retail development located on approximately 23 acres at the intersection of West Ox Road and Lee-Jackson Memorial Highway (Route 50) in Fairfax County. Cleveland-based owner DDR Corp. seeks to redevelop and revitalize this aging shopping plaza while retaining its mix of established tenants and introducing additional commercial and residential buildings. To facilitate this effort, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors authorized consideration of an out-of-turn Comprehensive Plan amendment for mixed-use development up to a 1.2 Floor Area Ratio. The plan amendment is tentatively scheduled for public hearings before the Fairfax County Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors on May 4 and June 7, respectively.
