Fairfax, VA townhouses are narrow, dense, and in mixed-use, transit oriented community

From Fairfax Times writer Jackie Friedlander: "The Vienna/Fairfax Metro station is the first stop for the Orange Line on its way to Washington and beyond.  The new Pulte at MetroWest community adjoins the station.  The MetroWest community is scheduled for 2,248 townhouses, condos and rental apartments on 56 acres. Plans also call for offices, shops, with 35 percent of the acreage devoted to open space.  With their standard brick fronts, the townhouses in Pulte at MetroWest display the enduring elegance of Northern Virginia’s popular federal style. "The Blake model is 16 feet wide, with 1448 square feet of living space, and on the ground floor a rear-loading one-car garage plus a front recreation room.  The Stuart is 20 feet wide with 1,942 square feet of living space. Its first floor provides a front rec room, a rear-loading two-car garage, and a powder room between them.  The 24-foot-wide Tyler model has 2,470 square feet and on the first floor a front-loading two-car garage and a rec room."  Full article here.
