Fill This Space: Reston Station’s Retail Center

Retail space at Reston Station

Reston’s first Silver Line Metro station at Wiehle-Reston East opened on Saturday with much fanfare.

The mixed-use development at Reston Station, which sits atop the seven-level underground garage adjacent to the Metro station, is still a work in progress. Eventually, there will be more than 1 million square feet of office, hotel, retail and residential space, says Comstock, the developer of the project.

One part of Reston Station is ready to go though: the 10,000-square-foot retail building (which will eventually be the hotel lobby when it is constructed).

What do you thing would make a good business (or businesses, as it can be divided) there? What could the plaza really use as its first restaurant or store?

    This would be a perfect spot for a bakery/cafe.

    Can’t wait to see the Starbucks but seriously how about Uno Pizza.

    Dunkin Donuts — I’ll be paying enough for the silver line from Arlington to Reston, so some good coffee that’s cheaper than Starbucks would be nice to pass the time waiting for the bus.

    I can’t imagine Starbucks would pass up that location

    Reston is lacking a bookstore since B&N closed in Reston a year or so ago!

    Didn’t Dunkin Donuts already get the exclusive coffee rights to this place over a year ago?
