Former Frame Factory Property Still Vacant Almost a Year Later

The building was demolished in 2012 after it was considered a blight nuisance vacancy.

The former site of the Frame Factory, located at 7130 Little River Tpke., beside the Antiques & Art Emporium, is still a vacant lot almost a year after the property was put up for sale.

The physical building which once housed the former Annandale framing business was torn down in early 2012 after the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved a blight abatement plan for the property.

The majority of the building was damaged in a fire in 2010 that caused a little over $1 million in damages.

Following the blight abatement, the property was put up for sale by the Riesett family.

TELL US, ANNANDALE: What kind of business would you like to see on this property? Do you think Little River Turnpike and the surrounding businesses are better off with the area remaining empty?

An organic food market.

It would be nice to see a multistory and mixed use building, retail / office / residential, would be built up all the way to the side walk. We don't need another “mini strip mall” and we sure don't need the blight of yet another pharmacy. This could be a great opportunity for Annandale to develop an attractive and functional central commercial area.

How about a park and some trees?
