Project Scope

The Rosslyn Sector Plan update will build on the successes of the 1992 Rosslyn Station Area Plan Addendum. It will focus on overcoming several persistent challenges the area has faced.

The primary goals include:

  • Creating a better urban design framework to make Rosslyn a more attractive and enjoyable place for people to be;


  • Providing a more specific and deliberate building heights strategy to help the County prioritize its goals affecting Rosslyn’s skyline;


  • Refining the multimodal transportation system consistent with current Master Transportation Plan policies to support the enhanced accessibility of Rosslyn’s future residents, workers, and visitors; and


  • Fashioning a more cohesive and functional parks and open space network to meet the recreational needs of Rosslyn while enhancing its public realm.
