Groundbreaking ceremony

Contributing Writer: Team SFMC —

This month, Fairfax County officials, partners, affiliates and neighbors were invited to the ground breaking at the former Lorton Prison for the upcoming Liberty Crest Project. SFMC is a consultant for the project. The Liberty Crest Project was approved on July 29, 2015.  Elm Street Development and Alexander Company intends to redevelop the area for residential, business, and community use.

The comprehensive project will use former prison buildings for 165 apartments, and 50,000 square feet for business or residential use. Van Metre will be a builder in the community.  Some of the new construction includes building 107 new homes and constructing a 60,000 square foot area for business use.
