Reston Station to Get Retail, Food ‘Stock Market’

By fall 2015, the empty retail space at Reston Station will have 10-25 vendors selling a variety of goods, food and libations.

Developer Comstock announced on Monday the opening of the the Stock Market @ Reston Station, an “urban, hip marketplace and retail space” for the 11,000-square-foot building.

Envision D.C.’s Union Market, but at the Silver Line’s Wiehle-Reston East.

“It is just what the community needs,” says Comstock spokeswoman Maggie Parker. “From a commuter getting a cup of coffee to couple looking for a night out with music and great dining.”

The Stock Market is a project developed by Michael Holstein. Holstein is an area entertainment lawyer and businessman who founded (and recently sold) Rockville’s Quench restaurant.

“We were initially contacted by Comstock about six months ago,” said Holstein. “What we saw was a beautiful, blank canvas. We couldn’t ask for better visibility or access to Metro.”

Holstein said the concept will make use of the retail center, as well as the platforms that are already built to one day be the base for office buildings. Those spaces may house pop-up stores. The market will also make use of the plaza space with kiosks and food trucks.

“We want to replicate the urban experience with suburban convenience,” he said.

Expect kiosks and food trucks on the plaza by spring, with the indoor space open by early fall, said Parker.

The market will be very convenient for the 450-unit BLVD apartments that are currently under construction. They are expected to also open next year.

Holstein said he cannot announce tenants yet, but is very close to signing some well-known national names. He says he is also saving space for Virginia-based businesses, and even envisions spots for local entrepreneurs to apply “Shark Tank” style to try out their product at The Stock Market.

The retail space has been finished for about a year. It has been used for special events, such receptions for stakeholders in the Silver Line, since then.

Eventually, the space above the retail center is slated to be built as a hotel.

Holstein said that the hotel project is still about five years away, but at least 9,000 square feet of the of The Stock Market space will remain with the hotel built around it.
