Fairfax County supervisors on June 7 are set to approve a public hearing on July 19 at 4 p.m. regarding the acquisition of certain land rights necessary for the construction of the Scotts Run Station North project.
“Once acquired, the land currently owned by the Gates of McLean Condominium Unit Owners Association will allow for future construction of an important public grid street” identified in the Tysons comprehensive plan, county staff wrote.
Land rights for one piece of property necessary for the project have not been acquired by the county’s Land Acquisition Division.
Because it would be “impractical” to obtain the necessary majority vote of the 624 unit owners in Gates of McLean Condominium Unit Owners Association would be needed, the Board of Supervisors may need to use eminent-domain powers to commence construction of this project on schedule, county staff wrote.
Capital One, which owns the approved site for Scotts Run Station North,” is committed to advancing construction of that planned public street and others in the vicinity to “frontload critical transportation infrastructure as Tysons East continues to develop,” staff wrote. “Acquiring this piece of land will enable this process to move forward.”
