Anyone know what is being done on the lot at the corner of University Dr and George Mason Blvd, across the street from University Hall? The lot is cleared and fencing up all around it. Not sure if that land is owned by the university, though.
$3.5 mil seems really low to me for that CHHS building. Also, I thought Ffx county/city owned that property (are we talking about the gravel lot where buses are normally parked?) Did Mason own that spot all along and rent it, or was this a recent land grab that slipped under the radar?
That is surprising as it is a nice facility. However, if it was not making money - you cannot keep it open. At least it will be leveraged for student housing and on campus conference space needs. Those will be nice dorm rooms!
I wonder if people knew it existed. I mean, there is the Days Inn (or whatever the hotel is near I-66 on Route 123) and that's it until you get to Tyson's to the north and Woodbridge/Lake Ridge to the south.
why did they ever think a fancy hotel on a commuter-perceived school would ever be worth it
There are a lot of nice hotel options in Fairfax: Marriott Fair Oaks, Courtyard Marriott, Residence Inn by Marriott, SpringHill Suites by Marriott (amongst a few others).
