The Kensington Senior Living building now under construction in the 600 block of W. Broad in Falls Church on the former site of Burger King reached its “topping off point,” as the roof was secured in place Friday, and traditionally that’s the cause for a party. So it was, and catered lunch was provided for all the construction workers and a big contingent of Falls Church City dignitaries were also invited.

Led by Mayor David Tarter, the City Hall and City Council representatives showed up in force. There were no speeches, but everyone was invited to sign the beam that was subsequently hoisted into place to complete the topping off.
