In July of 2017, Fairfax County, on behalf of the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA), received and accepted an unsolicited proposal under the provisions of the Public-Private Education and Infrastructure Act of 2002 (PPEA) to develop affordable housing and student housing on the site currently owned by the FCRHA (One University), located at 4348 Ox Road, 440 Saint Edwards Place, and 4500 University Drive in the Braddock District. In accordance with the procedures adopted by Fairfax County and the provisions of the PPEA, Fairfax County advertised for competing development proposals and ultimately selected one proposal to move forward for the potential redevelopment of the site, subject to an interim agreement authorizing the developers to pursue both the Comprehensive Plan amendment and the zoning necessary to permit the proposal.On June 4, 2019, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors adopted the Fairfax County Planning Commission’s recommendation to amend the Comprehensive Plan to add a development option to support up to 240 affordable housing units, up to 360 multifamily housing units envisioned to serve George Mason University (GMU) students, and limited space for community/public use. The next step in the process for One University is a Rezoning Application that will be before the Planning Commission for decision on Thursday, September 12 at 7:30 pm at the Fairfax County Government Center (12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax VA). It is anticipated that a Public Hearing on the Rezoning Application will subsequently take place at the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday, September 24, also at the Fairfax County Government Center.
