FAIRFAX, VA. - The Davies property is 2.69 acres between Chain Bridge Road and University Drive in the City of Fairfax. And in May 2016, Paradigm Development Corp. proposed replaced the existing house there with 315 apartments in a six-story building.

After review by City Council, City staff and the public – which decried the high density and tall building – the plan was scaled back to 258 apartments and was later withdrawn altogether. Now, the applicant proposes 45 townhouses in four-story buildings and the Council discussed it at its Oct. 10 work session.

Some 37 of the homes would be 22 feet wide and located along the north and south sides of a private street. The other eight homes, each 20 feet wide, would front on Chain Bridge. Access would be via University onto the private street.

“It would have a density of 16.9 dwelling units per acre,” said senior planner Paul Nabti. “Staff believes a rezoning to residential townhouse or planned development would be better than what’s requested, which is multifamily.”
