A blown transformer caused a power outage Reston Town Center overnight Wednesday.

The block of Market Street that contains Midtown Condos, Subway, Il Fornaio, Iceberry and other shops is dark. Il Forniao says it will be closed for lunch.

A Midtown employee said the entire high rise was without power or water as of 11:30 a.m.. Dominion Virginia Power was on site but did not have an estimate was to when the problem could be fixed.

    Actually this happened around 2am, when the fire alarms were triggered and the Fire Marshall paid us a visit. No water pressure either and no elevators early in the morning. Wonderful start to our day…

      Thanks. I corrected to post to show it happened overnight.

      High-rise and no elevators? Not even one on a backup generator?

        They actually kicked in the backup elevator after I left. Going down isnt too bad, going up another story…

  • Brian Pyatt

    It’s fixed now

      Water back on?

    Update: Transformers need to be replaced, will take +/- 5 hours starting @ 3. So power back at 8, est.
