Fill This Space: There’s an Opening on Market Street

11944 Market Street at Reston Town Center

There is a rare empty storefront on Reston Town Center’s Market Street.

PR Barbers recently packed up its styling tools from 11944 Market St. (next to Bow Tie Cinemas) and moved to a more compact spot near RTC’s pavilion.

That leaves a vacant space for now. No permits have been filed and Reston Now does not yet know of a lease signed for the space.

There are several other empty storefronts at the other end of Market Street, where an AT&T Store and Brighton Collectibles used to be housed. That space is being cleared out for redevelopment of that block into an office tower with first-floor retail.

Since no construction start date has been announced, RTC is letting pop-up shops do temporary business there.  A sustainable textiles store, Living Threads, recently opened, and more pop-up shops are expected soon.

Meanwhile, what should go in the PR Barbers’ space? Tell us in the comments.

      Lower cost and stores in the RTC don’t go together in the same sentence.

    An indoor dog park or free parking.
