Make Way for Homes at Former Mini-Storage Site

The former Reston Mini-Storage site, as well as the small commercial strip in the 11400 block of Sunset Hills Road have been razed in order to make room for the construction of apartments.

The tear-down has been happening the last two weeks and crews are working their way through the giant pile of bricks, steel and other debris.

The tenants had been moved out last year in order to make way for the construction. The five-acre parcel goes from Sunset Hills to Reston Station Boulevard, just across from Comstock’s BLVD Apartments at Reston Station, as well as the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station.

Reston developer Chuck Veatch, owner of the property, is working on the project with The Bozzuto Group.

The parcel was rezoned from Industrial to Planned Mixed Use Residential in 2010. A 421-unit building with 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail has been approved. See the county staff report for more details on the project.
