Community Proposed Along Dulles Toll Road for Older McLean Residents

Land along the Dulles Toll Road may get developed into a residential community for people ages 60 and older.

Pulte Homes is looking to turn almost 5 acres of land — four consolidated parcels — at the northwestern intersection of the Dulles Toll Road and Spring Hill Road into 59 dwelling units: 36 multi-family units in one building, 14 single-family attached units and nine affordable units.

“The affordable dwelling units comprise 15% of the total number of units,” according to county documents.

According to county documents, the development would include:

  • a four-story multi-family building with 32 two-bedroom units and four one-bedroom units atop of parking podium
  • open space with a 2,000-square-foot clubhouse and pickle ball and bocce ball courts
  • housing for roughly 80-100 residents

The community would have a villa-style architectural design with a “slightly more contemporary with a flat roof,” the documents say. The land currently has several aging single-family homes.

“The Applicant believes that this community will appeal to residents in McLean and the surrounding area who are seeking to downsize and enjoy less maintenance of their homes while continuing to live in the community,” according to the documents.

A Fairfax County Planning Commission hearing on the proposal is tentatively slated for June 10.
