Balfour Beatty Construction has started work on the new 144,253-square-foot, urban infill Fair Lakes Apartments project for The Bainbridge Cos. and Chesapeake Realty Partners.
Designed by Maryland-based architectural firm SK&I, the new apartment development is located on Fair Lakes Circle in Fairfax, near shopping and restaurants, the Fairfax County Parkway and Interstate Route 66.
The six-story, wood-framed, 150-unit building will include three stories of underground parking. The design features a façade of glass and brick, with metal panels, Brazilian Ipe wood panels, and fiber cement siding. Of the 150 units, 15 are studio apartments, 89 are one-bedroom units, and 46 are two-bedroom apartments. They will offer granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and polished concrete loft-style flooring.
The u-shaped building will wrap around an outdoor pool and spa, with a fitness room as an additional amenity. The apartments are designed to be compliant with National Association of Home Builders Green Building standards.
The Fair Lakes Apartments project is slated for completion in November 2013.
