For past several years, Merrifield has been a major center of redevelopment activity in Fairfax County. Located near I-66, the Capital Beltway, and the Dunn Loring-Merrifield Metro station, Merrifield is an ideal place for a new town center that incorporates residential, retail, and office spaces into a unique mixed-use area that is attracting new residents and bringing economic benefits to the surrounding community.
