Florida-based WCI Communities, which originally planned to build its new 12-story mixed-use condominium building completely in the parking lot of the Arlington Funeral Home property on North Fairfax Drive, has now announced that it hopes to expand this development to cover the existing funeral home building land as well. The Club at Quincy project, located in Virginia Square at 3901 N. Fairfax Drive, will now be a 124-unit condo complex, with WCI first demolishing the funeral home then building the condo building and a new funeral home on the site. The condo units are expected to average 1,200-1,300 sf. Pricing has not yet been set. With the additional space now afforded by this expansion, WCI plans to also include 3,440 sf of ground-floor retail and a 75-seat community theater to the complex, as well as a landscaped deck with a pool and spa. The project is being designed by WDG Architecture. WCI is still going through the approval process, but hopes to start construction by early 2008.
