Fairfax County to begin demolition of its former seat of government

Westlake Legal Group massey-building*100xx400-401-0-103 Fairfax County to begin demolition of its former seat of government Washington Business Journal Virginia Real Estate News Massey Building Local News Fairfax County, VA News fairfax county government Business & Finance Business   Fairfax County is scheduled to begin demolition of its former government center next week, as the county undergoes a planning process to determine the future of the site.

The 13-story Massey Building at 4100 Chain Bridge Road in Fairfax will be razed over the course of about a year, the county said, at which point the site will be restored as a grassy area. All hazardous materials, including asbestos, will have been removed from the building prior to the start of demolition, which will be done using high-reach processing machines to collect and sort materials piece by piece.

The county is simultaneously demolishing the Massey Annex (in progress) and a small, related building on Page Avenue (completed). Per Fairfax, 90% of the materials will be recycled.

Massey was opened in 1969 as the county’s seat of government. It became the home of the Fairfax County Police and Fire & Rescue departments in 1992 when the massive new government center opened about four miles to the west. A new, 275,000-square-foot…

A look inside Tysons’ newest office tower

Previously billed as Boro Tower, the 20-story building at 8350 Broad St. co-developed by Rockefeller Group has captured the attention of competing landlords and prospective tenants alike.

I recently got a look inside the new tower to see what all the buzz is about. Meridian Vice President Russell James, who is overseeing development at The Boro, said the project appears to have come out of Meridian’s belief that there was significant unmet demand for high-quality office space in Tysons. The building delivered about 70 percent pre-leased to tenants including Alion Science and Technology Corp., which signed on in January.

Jonathan Werran: Councils and business should talk about how local productivity can be improved

Jonathan Werran is the chief executive of Localis.

As the rumblings of a US presidential election begin to echo across the Atlantic, it’s a good time to recollect that where the American campaign boldly pioneers new policy and techniques, we will surely follow. Customarily open-mouthed, in slavish imitation and rather enjoying the experience.

For 2020 we need look further than dark horse outlier Andrew ‘Yangmentum’ Yang. His manifesto is one of preparing the USA for the automation revolution and the massive shifts to both blue and white collar working through Universal Basic Income.

Yang couches his radical economic reform programme for taking swing states through the inevitable social dislocation and civic trauma resulting from the next industrial revolution as ‘human-centred capitalism’.

This sensibility would, I suspect, resonate on this side of the pond. A report issued by Localis aims to explore what our major wealth generators, or local economic anchors, should be doing for the places where they are based and for the communities with which they have a symbiotic relationship.

Drawing on domestic and international experience – including Amy Goldstein’s compellingly vivid ‘Janesville: An American Story’ which detailed the impact to a mid-west town’s residents lives and wellbeing when the anchor GM plant closed – we wanted to explore what the balance between business and place currently is and should be.

Threats to jobs and the rise of the robots were identified by Localis in an earlier report warning of ‘cliff edge’ automation.

‘Prosperous Communities, Productive Places’ examines a more readily experienced danger of ‘doughnut economies’, a situation whereby local residents earn less and enjoy lower conditions than commuters entering their area to work for the major local employers.

For our money, the time is right for our big businesses to step up as responsible businesses and renew their relationship with the places which depend on their success through a fresh approach to Corporate Social Responsibility. In Local Industrial Strategies we already have strong mechanisms in place for getting to grips with new ways of working and tackling challenges that affect communities.

So we should renew the vow and commit such strategic relationships between places and big local employers to delivering higher standards for residents in the shape of “good jobs”, higher wages, stronger local skills supply chains and support for developing local housing and infrastructure for communities.

To deliver this renewed relationship, a productivity deal – effectively forming a new social contract with business – would balance increased productivity with place prosperity. It would be implicit, not regulatory and at its simplest a commitment to shared objectives. Deals would be based around a balanced scorecard of what business can do for place and what place can do for business to build sustainable and prosperous communities.

Our report includes a model productivity deal between West Sussex County Council and Gatwick Airport setting out how such a plan could be forged by strategic authorities – the likes of combined authorities in metropolitan areas and county councils in the shires.

To support these business productivity aims, the local state should, in turn, co-ordinate for its firms a local public sector innovation offer providing greater access to data, markets and finance, skills supply chain development and spatial planning.

By realising the positive effect of successful local economic anchors in building prosperous places, local areas will attract and grow productive businesses. This in turn will further strengthen the communities in which businesses are based, in a positive cycle of mutually-reinforcing prosperity.

As a relatively risk-free, bottom-up approach to making capitalism appear and be human-centred and responsive to local needs, it has to be given a try.

Wawa approaching Northern Virginia Beltway with Vienna store

Westlake Legal Group screen-shot-2019-04-30-at-104724-am*100xx831-831-327-0 Wawa approaching Northern Virginia Beltway with Vienna store wawa Washington Business Journal Virginia Local News Fairfax County, VA News Business & Finance Business   Wawa Inc. is moving quickly on its future store at the corner of main and main in the town of Vienna.

The Pennsylvania-based convenience store chain is approaching the Beltway in Northern Virginia with this location at 465 Maple Ave. W., at the intersection of Nutley Street and Maple Avenue. A former Coldwell Banker office will be modified to house the 9,000-square-foot store, with restrooms, seating and 42 parking spaces outside.

Similar to its recent additions in D.C. proper, the Vienna store will not have a gas station.

The chain is currently out for bid for general contractors. The work is valued at $499,999 and bids are due by May 16.

The existing building was constructed in 1974. Wawa’s plans include a new tower to create a small portico over the main entrance, a charcoal gray color to replace the existing red brick, and a new brick veneer to cover the existing white stucco columns. Vienna’s Board of Architectural Review approved the application in February.

In Northern Virginia,…

All Aboard the Idiot Train: Healthy Manhattan Restaurant’s Owner Gets Condemned for the Stupidest of Reasons

Health coach Arielle Haspel had a dream: Open a Chinese restaurant where food-sensitive diners could pig out without fear.

There was only one problem: She wasn’t Chinese.

Ready the cherry-picking Woke among us.

Arielle and her husband, Lee, cut the ribbon on Manhattan’s Lucky Lee’s.

At good ol’ LL’s, the lo mein wouldn’t make ya feel “bloated and icky;” and nothing was “too oily.” Arielle’s Instagram said so.

Apropos, she advertised her easy-on-the-gut eatery as “clean.”

Wanna see some dumbness? I give you The New York Times:

[A] stream of food writers posted about how Ms. Haspel’s decision to brand her Chinese food as “clean” was dredging up stereotypes that were hurtful to Chinese-Americans, not to mention tone-deaf.

Tone-deaf! Hurtful! Bad white people! Bad!

In fact, Arielle had no business serving Chinese food, period. Her chopstick logo, her bamboo-bedazzled decor…hateful racist appropriating theft!

Everyone knows that only someone whose relatives were born in China has the right to enjoy chicken fried rice.

No word yet why Asians are allowed to have a hot dog. I guess the weenies haven’t gotten to that yet.

But they’ve gotten to Arielle:

[S]he was portrayed by critics on social media as the latest in a string of white restaurateurs who have promoted their Asian cuisine by labeling it as superior to food made by actual Asians.

Exactly — the worst thing you can do in business is tout your product as superior.

In this case, that’s white supremacy.

Also in this case: Supreme Moronity.

This is where we are. But Arielle’s in the wrong, too. She’s made that worst of all possible mistakes in response to social justice war — the one Tucker Carlson knows to avoid (here); she’s apologized:

“We are so sorry. We were never trying to do something against the Chinese community. We thought we were complementing an incredibly important cuisine, in a way that would cater to people that had certain dietary requirement.”

How about this response instead: It’s just food. And no individual or group owns a culture. And a whole lot of this.

As it stands, if you’re in Manhattan, in the mood for Kung Pao, and have a delicate gut, you may be faced with a startling predicament: You can be a racist or have diarrhea.

These are the difficult decisions one must make, at the most enlightened time in history.

They call that a “Sophie’s choice” — when both options are crappy.

Kung Pao or Dung POW!

Herndon just marked a milestone in the small town’s history

Westlake Legal Group screen-shot-2019-04-17-at-24056-pm*100xx732-732-73-0 Herndon just marked a milestone in the small town’s history Washington Business Journal Virginia Local News Fairfax County, VA News Business & Finance Business   Herndon officials just approved the town’s first new mixed-use development near the future Herndon Metro station, a major step for growth along the path of the Silver Line’s expansion.

The Town Council voted unanimously last week to sign off on development plans for a 4.3-acre property at 555 Herndon Parkway. D.C. developer Penzance is looking to replace the current office building with two residential towers and one office building, all of which will include ground-floor retail.

There’s no telling just when Metro’s Silver Line will finally start serving the town — officials continue to shoot for a 2020 opening, though the project has been plagued by a series of construction woes — but Herndon leaders have worked for years to clear the path for new development near the station and another that sits just outside its border.

Penzance’s project, which has been in the works for the better part of the last three years, represents the first such effort to get off the ground since…

The former Marco Polo restaurant at 245 Maple Ave. had already closed when it was heavily damaged by fire in October and later demolished. Two teenagers were arrested and charged with arson and destruction of property.

Vienna officials in the spring of 2018 approved plans for Vienna Market, covering 1.97 acres across multiple addresses on Pleasant Street NW, in addition to 245 Maple. The applicant was listed as Vienna Vision LLC, and Doug D’Alexander was listed as the contract purchaser of the site from three different owners. Northfield acquired the overall property from Vienna Vision, said Northfield Principal Alon Street.

Northfield expects to break ground in May and deliver its first townhomes in about a year. The project is backed by John Marshall Bank, according to a release. The release…
