The under-construction residential property by Reston developer Chuck Veatch and Bozzuto has a name: The Aperture.

The Aperture is the project at Sunset Hills Road and Metro Center Drive, across the street from the Wiehle-Reston East Metro and Comstock’s Reston Station.

The Aperture will feature 421 apartments in a seven-story building, and has been approved for 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. The five-acre site was previously home to a mini-storage facility and retail strip center.

The site was also previously zoned industrial. Now that it is residential, residents will be Reston Association members.

    The wisdom of calling brand new and shiny apartments “The Hole” rather escapes me.
    Maybe Bozzuto is just brutally honest about them. 😉

    • Why do you bother?

      My thought, too.

  • Chuck Morningwood

    I wonder how many of the 421 have been set aside for low-income.

      Something like this?

      The Comprehensive Plan specifically encourages the provision of workforce
      housing as part of the residential component of the development. The applicant is
      proposing to provide 5 percent of the total units as Affordable Dwelling Units
      RZ FDP 2010-HM-008 Page 23
      (ADUs), which would be administered pursuant to the ADU Ordinance, regardless
      of whether the proposed multifamily residential building is exempt from the
      requirement to provide ADUs puruant to Section 2-803 of the Zoning Ordinance.
      ln addition, the applicant proposes to provide 7 percent of the residential units as
      Workforce Dwelling Units (WDUs)
      . These WDUs would be administered as set
      forth in the Board of Supervisors’ Workforce Dwelling Unit Administrative Policy
      Guidelines dated October 15, 2OOT . As such, staff believes that this criterion has
      been met.

    The Texas Donut makes its appearance in Reston after being fought for decades.

    • “Ummm…donuts!”

      Yeah, those doughnuts are a pretty unimaginative design, aren’t they? Some ppl like them, as long as your unit is situated close to the entrance to the central parking facility, or the central elevator to the lobby, otherwise the residents may have long walks thru the corridors to get to an exit.

  • Why do you bother?

    I’m betting that rents start at $2,500/month…or more

    The residents can walk right over to McDonald’s or Taco Bell for dinner. After their outdoor yoga session.
