As many of you know, the City of Falls Church has approved construction of the Founders Row development, which will include 93,000 square feet of retail space and 400 apartments. Founders Row will occupy the entire space adjacent to the St. James Convent field and House of Ministries, bordered by Broad Street, West Street, and Park Avenue. Construction is expected to begin this fall or winter and take three years to complete, bringing the local traffic disruptions one would expect from such a massive project.
To encourage Founders Row customers to park in the development’s parking garage, the City is implementing permanent parking restrictions on Park Avenue between West Street and Spring Street. The Church side of Park Avenue will be restricted to two-hour parking; the residential side of Park Avenue will be restricted to resident-only parking. If you have been parking on the residential side of Park Avenue to attend Mass and other events at St. James, now is a good time to change your parking habits.
To avoid the expected construction-related traffic disruptions and the new parking restrictions, remember that you may park in any of our parking lots:at Park & Spring Streets (A Lot); at Park & Oak Streets (B Lot); and in the Teacher’s Lot (C Lot) off of Broad Street. All three lots are a city block or more away from the construction site.
