What Are T-Zones?
Transition areas, or "T-Zones" serve as an area between more vibrant commercial districts and quieter single-family residences. Across the City, approximately 24 acres of land, or less than three percent of the total land area, is zoned T.
- T-1 and T-2 Zoning
- T-1 zoning is primarily located on North Washington Street and on Park Avenue. Existing uses include the Columbia Baptist Church, Christ-Crossman Methodist Church, Sunrise of Falls Church, single-family houses converted to commercial use and residential townhouses.
- T-2 zoning is limited to North Washington Street and Park Avenue near Maple Avenue and is developed with the Kaiser Permanente facility and a small office building.
Below is a highlighted version of the City’s Official Zoning Map showing T-1 and T-2 properties. Acreages (AC) of contiguous T-Zoned properties are noted.
