Plans for a major redevelopment in Falls Church are moving ahead, in a key first step for the transformation of the western edge of the small city. The City Council voted unanimously last week to ink a deal with PN Hoffman, EYA and Regency Centers (NASDAQ: REG) to advance the construction of the “Little City Commons” project, set for a site along Route 7 that’s currently home to George Mason High School. The development team, tabbed by officials for the project last fall, expects to build as much as 1.4 million square feet of mixed-use on the site across two phases.
