Fill This Storefront: What Should Open Here?

Vacancy at 11160 South Lakes Drive

From time to time, Reston Now checks in on some of Reston’s vacant commercial properties and asks the community “What do YOU think should open here?”

This week, we are checking in on the spot at 11160 South Lakes Dr., which used to house Footsteps. The athletic store closed last March after the owner — who had been in the space for more than 20 years — said rent was too high and that South Lakes Village Center had become mainly focused on restaurants.

What would you like to see in this spot next to a CVS? Tell us in the comments.
