The Stock MarketThe plan to have an urban-style food and retail market at Reston Station has been put on hold, at least for now.

Comstock, which is developing the mixed-use neighborhood at the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station, says it has parted ways with entertainment lawyer and restauranteur Michael Holstein.

When The Stock Market project for the 11,000-square-foot retail center at Reston Station was announced last December, Comstock and Holstein said they planned to have 10-25 vendors selling a variety of food, drink and other goods in the space by summer 2015.

“I still think it is a great spot,” Comstock spokeswoman Maggie Parker said on Tuesday. “The best service to our residents is to have local marketplace.”

Both Holstein and Comstock said the parting was friendly and mutual.

Eventually, the space above the retail center will be built out as a hotel.

The 448-unit BLVD Apartments at Reston Station will begin leasing this fall, with the first residents moving in in February, said Parker.

Parker also said the project’s first office building will begin construction this fall. The 16-story building will have 350,000 square feet of space.

    If you quote the guy, at least report what he has to say about: Why? Did anybody ask him why?

      He didn’t have much to day. Both parties said it was a friendly parting of the ways.

        Clarendon Bros, there’s a nicer, more civil way you could have said that.

  • Hoots

    I heard that he was dissapointed when he found out the Reston, in the year 2015, still does not have a Hooters. He is planning to move to Market to Fairfax, Manassas, Woodbridge, or another Hooters friendly town.

    Of course they decided against the indie vendor project. One giant Cheesecake Factory or PF Chang’s or other horrible chain that can afford it will lease the space for far more $$$$. Reston sucks.
