Information gathered via Fairfax County Planning and Zoning department on preliminary concept for Baileys Crossroads redevelopment is linked with the coming of Columbia Pike streetcar project in Arlington. The streetcar terminus at South Jefferson Street in Fairfax county. Essentially this streetcar connects Pentagon (Arlington) and Baileys Crossroads/ Skyline area in Fairfax.
Closer look at the proposed route for Columbia Pike streetcar.
At the end of Arlington route at Columbia Pike, street car continues up almost to the end of South Jefferson Street which is essentially border with Skyline.
This map shows proposed area of redevelopment on Fairfax's side.
Basically, the county agrees with most of the recommendation made by Urban Land Institute plus county's own proposed concentration of highest density within 1/8 mi. of the streetcar stops, pedestrian connection, and exploring various configurations for the streetcar operations facility.
There are 2 final concepts on the table for Baileys redevelopment:
1. Town Center
Proposed planning study includes reconfiguration of land use to include mixed-use (4 to 10 floors), residential and neighborhood retail types, townhomes, small apartments, big box retailers, industrial flex (warehouse?), open space and civic place. It's a more compact density for residential.
A little bit different than above, larger lot set aside for street cars operation (6 acres) with parks vs. open space (above) and lower residential density.
