New ‘Mason Row’ Plans Come to F.C. Council Sept. 8

The revised application delivered to Falls Church City Hall the end of July by the Spectrum Development LLC group for its 4.3 acre Mason Row project at the intersection of N. West St. and W. Broad has been under review by the City’s Planning Department, City Manager Wyatt Shields reported to the City Council Monday night, and should come before the City Council for a public presentation at its next meeting just after Labor Day on Sept. 8.

Shields suggested the report would then be shipped out “formally or informally” to City boards and commissions for their review and recommendations, and come back to the Council for action by late November or December, when the issue of a final approval will come up for a vote.

The new submission, which eases the impact of the project on Park Avenue and sets the hotel as a free-standing structure right at the N.West and W. Broad intersection, reflects the contributions of Spectrum’s new partner, Mill Creek Residential, the Dallas-based company formerly known as Trammel Crow.
