The Post Requested an Update on the Current Status of the Project
Office of the Falls Church City Manager Has Replied
By Sam Mabry
With rumors swirling among neighbors and tenants regarding the future of the project, The Post requested a status report on Mason Row and received the following response from City Manager Wyatt Shields on March 2.
“As part of the land use approvals for Mason Row, the developer must provide documentation that agreements for a hotel and a theater have been executed before the land entitlements are final. That must occur before the Planning Commission can approve a site plan, and I can confirm that to date, the documentation on these agreements have not been received.”
Any negotiations by the developer or the current property owner with future or current tenants are not in the purview of the city and are wholly between the commercial parties.
The project is slated to be located on property bounded by West Broad and North West Streets and Park Avenue.
With regard to reports that the 7-11 store is in possession of future lease options for the next several years, it is understood from several sources that the developer and 7-11 have been in negotiations and those discussions are ongoing.
