The first residential building at Reston Station, adjacent to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro, is officially open and welcoming its first residents.

BLVD Luxury Apartments is holding a celebration Tuesday from 5 to 8 p.m. Stop by the building off the Reston Station Plaza for food, wine and a tour of Comstock’s newest residential project.

BLVD features 450 apartments and is the first building to open at Reston Station. Coming soon will be a 16-story office building (under construction), a hotel, and a Founding Farmers restaurant.

If you can’t make it to the party, BLVD’s leasing center is located on the plaza at Reston Station and is now open seven days a week.

Rents will start at about $1,900 a month for a studio to more than $3,000 for a three-bedroom plus den model. There are a number of floorplans available.

Among the features and amenities:

  • Stainless steel, gas appliances, hardwood laminate floors, quartz countertops and other high-end finishes in all units.
  • A concierge lounge, business center, and cold-storage space for grocery delivery, as well as an exercise room and yoga/martial arts space.
  • 20 percent (88 units) of the apartments are priced for workforce housing.
  • A ninth-floor “skypark” with green space.
  • Penthouse-level lounge, pool, media lounge, dog walk and demonstration kitchen with 360-degree views.

Residents of the building will be Reston Association members. Comstock has paid RA $650,000 in developer contributions, $300,000 of which is an association initiation fee under a new membership fee structure for buildings along the Dulles Toll Road, which were not previously RA property.

    It’s scary to think that I pay less for my single family home with half acre lot than a studio in a place like this.

      Seriously. We used to doubt we could get $1,800/month for our two bedroom condo in town center (the garden-style condos across from the hospital), which is pretty much what our mortgage plus the HOA fee is, but with all these new apartments going in, our current payments look like a steal.

        Yep. I bought in the 90s. My deal is a steal. But it’s easy to overpay for housing these days. The mortgage interest deduction has done a huge amount of damaging distortion in the housing market. I think, at some point the new apartments will put downward pressure on prices.

    Any idea whether or not they are charging us to park for this event?

      Take Metro! It’s the future! 🙂

      • suburbancorrespondnt

        I’m in Reston already, or I would.

        • Mike M

          Nope. Work with me. Breathe deeply the dysfunctional mythology!

          Try bikeshare! Wasn’t 800 million just spent on it?
