Mosaic at Merrifield

Fairfax, Virginia

Mahan Rykiel Associates developed master plan concepts for this 31-acre mixed-use development in Fairfax County. Partly infill, the project includes retail, residential, office, hospitality, and neighborhood park components. A pilot project for the LEED Neighborhood Development rating system, it has already received a Silver certification.

Design concepts involved establishing pedestrian and vehicular connections, parking layouts, creating 20,000 square feet of green roofs, planting design, and paving. The project incorporates a number of sustainable features including electric car charging stations, advanced stormwater management systems and connections to existing public transportation. The development will create a new center for the community in the heart of Fairfax County. The first phase of the project is now open.
