A Reston developer has filed a rezoning application in order to develop a parcel of land adjacent to Plaza America.

Linden Development owns the 6.3-acre property known as Triangle Park, as well as several other Reston office buildings.

Triangle Park currently contains two office buildings directly adjacent to the side of Plaza America where Starbucks, Loft and Staples are located. The land also borders Sunset Hills Road to the north and the Dulles Toll Road to the south and is within a half-mile of the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station.

Linden is seeking to rezone the property from office-industrial to mixed use. It says it plans a 75/25 mix of residential and non-residential (office, retail), though plans have not yet been made public.

Fairfax County Planning staff is currently reviewing the application.

Meanwhile, plans for the Soapstone connector include a route that goes almost right through this property.

  • Wings not so much

    It would be good to have a Skywalk between plaza America and Reston Heights.

    Will they fix the parking lot too? Worst designed parking lot I’ve ever seen.

    • Karen Goff

      It actually has nothing to do with Plaza America itself. Totally different owner. So the answer is probably “no.”

  • Greg

    The Soapstone Connector goes through some of this property. Is this just a way for them to increase the value/cost of acquisition?

    • Karen Goff

      Yes the connector has plans to empty out there. That is a good question. For now, the news is that they plan development. Stay tuned.

    It’s Staples, not Office Depot.
