The new Scotts Run Fire and Rescue Station 44 in Tysons East officially broke ground today (Wednesday).
The new fire station in the Tysons East neighborhood is meant to relieve the overburdened Fire Station 29 by the Spring Hill Metro station. Fairfax County Fire and Rescue tweeted earlier today (Wednesday) that the groundbreaking was set to take place at 10 a.m.
Construction of the fire station was part of a proffer for Cityline Partners LLC’s mixed-use development called Scotts Run Station South.
The two-story fire station will have three bays, offices, living quarters for up to 12 crew members per shift and restrooms that people using the Scotts Run Station South athletic field can use.
The parking lot for the fire station will have 22 spots for staff members and four public parking spaces.
Fairfax County planners want the building to achieve LEED certification, according to TRINITY.
The fire station is set to be completed by the end of next year.
