FAQ for The Ox - Fairfax

The Ox – Fairfax is an activated cultural destination for the arts, entertainment, retail, hospitality, and food and beverage. Below is a list of frequently asked questions. We encourage interested parties to complete the form on this page to receive email updates on the project. Ox Hill Companies will also be hosting a Virtual Town Hall on Wednesday, June 12 at 8 pm ET to share further details and answer questions live on our YouTube channel

  • Why is The Ox - Fairfax being considered for this area?

    The 2035 City of Fairfax Comprehensive Plan and the Old Town Fairfax Small Area Plan (the “SAP”) speaks to the re-imagination of Old Town as a cultural destination. The Ox – Fairfax will be designated as an activity center consistent with the Old Town SAP, which calls for mixed-use activation including entertainment, hospitality, and food and beverage. Ox Hill’s project plan addresses and meets the city’s objectives.

  • What percentage of taxpayer’s dollars would be used for The Ox Fairfax, Block A?

    No tax dollars will go towards the construction of this project. The cost will be absorbed by the commercial enterprise.

  • How is the architecture going to change the historic City of Fairfax?

    The comprehensive design includes buildings to fit within the context of the surrounding area. We have implemented numerous harmonious architectural styles along each frontage to provide a variation in the facades and to avoid monolithic appearance. In addition, the historic bank building located on the corner of Chain Bridge and Sager will undergo a restoration and will be repurposed as an art gallery.

  • What kind of impact will this have on traffic?

    Traffic impact studies have been conducted as part of planning for this project. Concerts and events would generate traffic on off-hours, not during standard commuter hours. Carefully designed public and ride share drop-off and pick-up points, underground parking and delivery/loading docks, and multiple surrounding public lots/garages will allow multiple entry and exit points, preventing a single-point bottle neck. The city’s plan to extend South Street will also improve the network of street access. Traffic studies and management plans are available on the Community Development & Planning page of the City of Fairfax’s website

  • Where will visitors to The Ox - Fairfax park?

    The design of The Ox – Fairfax includes a new underground parking structure in addition to surface parking. Ox Hill Companies will add parking spaces, in accordance with the City of Fairfax requirements. In addition to parking on-site, there are multiple free, public lots within a 5 minute walk of the site. Download City of Fairfax Parking Map

  • What sort of events will take place in the concert hall?

    The design and flexible seating of the concert hall will allow the venue to accommodate a variety of events. Offerings to the community will include events ranging from comedy and music performances to proms, graduations, gala dinners, and fashion shows. Depending upon the seating configuration for each event, the hall would accommodate approximately 500 people for gala dinners and proms to a fully seated stage show capacity of 2,410. For sell-out, standing room only shows, there is a maximum capacity of 4,127 people.

  • Are you considering addressing affordable housing in the City of Fairfax?

    The Ox – Fairfax application is for a commercial enterprise. There is no residential housing as part of this application. 

  • Will the Humane Society remain at its current location?

    The planned extension of South Street, by the City of Fairfax, will eventually require a relocation of the Humane Society regardless of The Ox – Fairfax application.
