Retail & Commercial Real Estate 


Fairview is a great location for retail of all types. With a retail trade area comprised of both strong demographics and psychographics to match the town’s pro-business attitude, retailers and developers will find Fairview is right for them.

Commercial Planned Development District

This Planned Development District (“PDD”) governs land use and development within the mostly commercial and retail areas on the west side of the Town. The PDD imposes Form Based Standards that are intended to maintain the District’s high design quality by regulating key aspects of building and site design. This will help achieve a more positive and sustainable outcome for development in the PDD. This PDD combines minimum and maximum specifications with standards for site layout, building design and streetscape. It provides for flexibility among compatible uses to allow developers and the Town to respond to changing market demands. It also encourages parking that increases land use efficiency and minimizes disruption of the Public Realm.
 
CPDD ImageThe standards embodied in this PDD reflect the timeless principles upon which great towns and communities are based, and are aimed at creating comfortable and attractive places for people to meet, live, conduct business and enjoy recreation. The standards complement existing neighborhoods and development by building upon major trends in household type, characteristics and preferences as a means to provide a mix of housing types for young professionals, active seniors and assisted living. New residential uses provide a mix of unit types that will appeal to the urban residential market. They are generally integrated into mixed and multi-use areas, rather than residential-only areas. The intensity and land use mix in the PDD area makes Fairview “transit ready” for when rapid transit extends to this corridor.
 
Another important element of this PDD is the procedure for approval of development proposals. It combines high standards with administrative review and approval of plans and requests for modifications to certain requirements that improves efficiency in the development approval process and can achieve a more appropriate development for the particular site.
