The Long-Awaited Revitalization of Annandale Begins
The new proposal for redevelopment of the site includes a 12-story multi-family residential rental apartment building named Markham Place. The building includes a 6,000 square foot family friendly restaurant, plus additional outdoor seating under a stainless steel clad canopy, and 300 elegant new apartment residences enjoying on-site amenities not available in other Annandale apartment communities. Seventy percent of the apartments will be one bedroom, 10% studio space, and 16% two bedrooms, all of a size ideal for singles and young couples.
Planned improvements in this LEED Silver design include green landscaped space at street and terrace levels, underground residential and commercial parking, and premier architectural design and materials. Tenants will enjoy a fitness room, a business center, club room, and an outdoor plaza with pool, cabanas, and BBQ area. Bethesda architect, Faik Tugberk commented that the aesthetic of this building provide, “landmark quality in line with high-quality residential developments.”
Markham Street will be widened to accommodate additional traffic, to prevent back-ups, and to provide direct access into the building. A new bike lane will also be added. Approximately one acre of green space has been allocated behind the building for tenant use. In the future, the county plans to join properties fronting Annandale Road, and backing to Markham Place, with this green space; converting it into an area park for the enjoyment of the entire community. Southern Management and the Webb Companies have generously agreed to dedicate this space to the Fairfax County Park Authority when that time comes.
