POSTED: Six Responses to Request for Conceptual Proposals

The six responses to the West Falls Church Economic Development Project request for conceptual proposals are posted to the City's website. An evaluation committee is reviewing the proposals received and will make a recommendation on the finalists to the City Council in June. The City will then issue a Request for Detailed Proposals (RFDP) and invite one or more of the six teams to respond with detailed proposals. The City intends to make a final selection by the autumn of 2018.

The City of Falls Church is eager to engage the real estate community through a transformational mixed-use development opportunity. The West Falls Church Economic Development Project is envisioned as a regional activity center and transit-oriented destination integrating commercial and residential uses with public and civic spaces.

Project History

The entire 34 acre campus was acquired through a boundary adjustment agreement between the City of Falls Church and Fairfax County in 2014. Since that time, the City of Falls Church has conducted several studies on its development feasibility. Numerous community meetings and public forums have occurred to discuss and plan for the future of the site. For more information on the history, please visit the City of Falls Church's website.
