West Falls Church Economic Development Project (website): TEYA, PN Hoffman, and Regency Centers team is chosen with the top-ranked proposal. The concept of The Little City Commons includes a large, outdoor common area, retail, grocery store, a music venue or civic center, apartments, condominiums, senior living, a hotel, office space, and parking.
Funds have been approved for per-construction services. The project is ready to move forward to the schematic design phase; public input will be requested in December.
The Library Board of Trustees recommended an option that places the children's area on the lower level, moving all adult sections to one floor (the upper level), and moving the main entrance to the corner of Virginia Ave. and Park Ave.
There will be a lot of windows on the lower level -- on two sides, in fact! This level will also become larger with the expansion.
Construction is due to start in Summer 2019 and be completed in Summer 2020.
Research is underway as to which Library services will remain open, and in what location, during the renovation.
