JBG’s RTC West project was approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, clearing the way for 40,000 square feet of retail and dining close to the future Reston Town Center Metro station.
The public hearing portion of the supervisors meeting had no speakers and the project was unanimously approved.
The planning commission recommended the project for approval in late February. There was no significant opposition, but the developer had to agree to many conditions, mostly to add traffic and pedestrian access.
A January county staff report also recommended approval for RTC West, provided transportation conditions were met.
The 13-acre site currently houses three office buildings. Much of the development will convert the first two floors of the office buildings.
JBG says it plans to convert 15,100 square feet of office space to retail/restaurant space and add 25,000 square feet of new retail/restaurant space (on the southwest corner of the site), including outdoor seating.
The area is bordered by the W & OD Trail on the side of Reston Town Center, Town Center Parkway, Sunset Hills Road and the complex that currently houses Chipotle, Potbelly, Chick-fil-A, Carrabba’s and Extended Stay America.
Some of the transportation conditions include adding walkways and crosswalks to the W & OD Trail and Town Center Parkway and moving access to the office park about 440 feet north of the Parkway’s Intersection with Sunset Hills Road.
