CBG hosted representatives from owner Combined Properties and architect Hord Coplan Macht as well as project subcontractors and city officials.

Mayor David Meyer shared remarks on the community's impact on the city, thanking everyone in attendance and those who had contributed to the project thus far. In a statement to WTOP, the mayor said, "Combined Properties has a first-rate project that will become an iconic entrance to our community."

Other officials in attendance included the city fire marshall and building inspectors. The event featured a lunch buffet and gift raffle for field staff. CBG completed a multi-year preconstruction process and 19 months of construction to reach this milestone.

Featuring an active streetscape and amenities such as a pool, fitness center, and pet spa, Scout on the Circle offers urban conveniences as well as suburban comforts. Giant Food plans to occupy the community's state-of-the-art grocery pad as its retail anchor.

"We are so pleased to have reached the top out stage on the Scout project," said Jonathan Tibbs, a vice president at CBG. "This project was challenging as we had complex dry utility relocations, unexpected groundwater and rock excavations, and challenging site grades, but I am proud of how the team came together to creatively solve these issues while staying on schedule."

Scout on the Circle's studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units will feature high-end finishes, including quartz countertops and EnergyStar appliances. Of the community's 400 apartments, six percent will be affordable. "Scout on the Circle is going to be a beautiful addition to Fairfax and a great long-term asset for Combined," said Tibbs.
