Work begins on $7 million renovation of Fairview Park in Falls Church
Washington Property Company (WPC) has begun a $7 million renovation of its 120,000-square-foot Fairview Park office building in Falls Church.
The Class A property at 3160 Fairview Park Drive is the former headquarters of Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC).
Upon completion of renovations this June, the building will have a new tenant-only fitness center with showers and locker rooms, a conference center and tenant collaboration area.
A glass canopy, new contemporary finishes, and a covered walkway leading to the 400-car parking garage will update a reconfigured lobby.
The new facility will offer a cardio studio with spin bikes and multiple flat-screen TVs. Additional work includes garage repairs and improvements, landscaping, and hardscaping. All of the building’s systems are being replaced and bathrooms are being renovated.
Fairview Park is situated on a six-acre site within the 220-acre Fairview Park complex, where office tenants have access to three lakes, a koi pond, and 2.5 miles of jogging trails. The Fairview Park Marriott Hotel is within walking distance, and a shuttle provides free transportation to and from the nearby Mosaic District, an area with restaurants, Target and upscale boutiques.
WPC, based out of Bethesda, Md., acquired the property in March 2017 from CSC for $7.15 million. “We took advantage of an opportunity to acquire and renovate an existing office building in a great location and offer Class A space at competitive rental rates,” Andy Eshelman, WPC principal/acquisitions, said in a statement. “When Fairview Park was first developed in the 1980’s, a main selling point was its easy access to I-495. Now this office park offers proximity to the popular Mosaic District, Metrorail’s Dunn Loring-Merrifield station on the Silver and Orange Lines, and the rapidly redeveloping ‘edge city’ of Tysons.”
