A ceremonial groundbreaking is scheduled for Thursday, July 14, on the Northgate project in the City of Falls Church.  Located at the north entrance to the City at the intersection of N. Washington Street (Rt. 29) and E. Jefferson Street, the project, owned by Hekemian & Co., will include 23,000 square feet of ground floor retail, 14,000 square feet of office space, 95 apartments and 10 townhouses.  The Northgate is being developed on the former site of Pearson’s Funeral Home.

“On a high profile gateway connecting the City of Falls Church and Arlington, the Northgate project represents a $50 million investment in our community,” said Mayor Nader Baroukh.  “This development will have Orange and Silver Line Metro accessibility and will help enliven N. Washington Street just a few blocks from the State Theatre and a host of popular Falls Church restaurants.”

Following many public meetings, public hearings and staff conferences, the Northgate was approved by the Planning Commission and the City Council in 2007. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2013.

The architecture of the Northgate will be unique in the City.  The design, by MV + A Architects of Bethesda, will reflect materials and features common in buildings along Connecticut Avenue in NW Washington, DC.
