Sterling’s Development Services Group is part of the first development team, led by Novus Property Holdings, to utilize Fairfax County’s new electronic zoning application submission system.

The project can help revitalize the corridor, bringing much needed housing. The building also will replace a car-title lending business at the site now.


As part of its Economic Success plan, the county is improving the speed, consistency and predictability of its land development review process, and e-Plans is one initiative in this effort. The plan also calls for creating more urban, mixed use developments near transit.
