Reston Chili’s Will Close Before End of 2014

Chilis in RestonChili’s Bar and Grill will be closing its Reston location sooner than expected, a store spokesman has confirmed.

The restaurant’s last day will be Dec. 28, says Mike Huffman, director of operations for Chesapeake Restaurants, Chili’s parent company.

Huffman told Reston Now last week that the Chili’s, located at 11840 Sunrise Valley Dr., would close “sometime this spring.”

Chili’s has been in its spot near the International Center for more than 20 years. However, that whole area is slated for a major redevelopment.

The redevelopment plan includes 145,000 square feet of above-grade retail, 100,00 square feet of below-grade retail, 428,225 square feet of office and 498 residential units in mid-rise buildings.

Developer JBG has not said when redevelopment is slated to begin. A Wells Fargo branch closed in August and sits empty as well.

The rest of the small strip mall retail is slated to be torn down as part of the redevelopment. Only the Exxon station and free-standing Popeyes restaurant are slated to remain.
