Yesterday, Fairfax County approved development plans for Route 1 (just outside of Old Town).

Fairfax County Dot Gov has more details about the plan.

When should we expect progress to make with this development?

If you're not familiar with this area, I've already noticed that developers have been buying up large parcels of land in the area. Remember the old bowling alley behind Zips Dry Cleaners across the street from Walmart?

That place has already been demolished and they've started prepping the site for $700,000 single family homes.

While this news is exciting, what's the likelihood of these projects breaking ground within the next 5 years?

The Metro extension will take a long time. Ten years, minimum?

The BRT should be a lot sooner. Implementing the grid changes will take place as development occurs, as in Tysons, and the pace of that will depend on market conditions.
