The seven-story apartment complex, dubbed “the Lincoln,” will be located next to the site of the future Metro Commerce Center, a multi-acre development by Vornado Realty planned to consist of four towers featuring offices, residences, retail and a hotel.

The Lincoln is slated to be built on three acres near the corner of Sunrise Valley Drive and Commerce Park Drive, where a surface-level parking garage for the Executive II office building is located now.

The firm developing the Lincoln, Wiehle Station Ventures LLC, told the board that the apartment complex will feature an interior Rendering of Lincoln Property Co. Project off Sunrise Valley Drive/Credit: Fairfax Countycourtyard and underground parking.

“The developer will also help to build the planned shared-use path along Sunrise Valley,” the board said in its announcement Thursday.

The site for the Lincoln complex is close to Reston National Golf Course and Soapstone Drive, where a future toll road crossing is planned.

    Hudgins is a disgrace
    The developers should be forced to improve the traffic

      She is the chris christie version of the democrats…

        Can she be removed from office?

      Within a year or two, this will no longer be Reston, it will be Hudginville. Kind of reminds me of “Pottersville” in “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

    Is there any dense thing the Board of Supervisors will NOT approve for construction around a Metro rail station???

      I was thinking Stalin, but we’re on the same page.

      • God help us!

        Hideous looking structures. Thanks Cathy Hudgins for “improving” Reston once again!

          Omg there’s so much in the pipeline too. Crazy. I Google reston metro development. I can barely keep up but curbed gives a nice map.

    There appears to be a fair amount of angst with the development going on around Wiehle-East. The area right now is zoned commercial, and it’s being developed to be a higher quality of commercial/office buildings that currently exist. While I am in agreement that the apartments aren’t particularly inspirational, this area is already developed and is merely being updated and improving South Reston, which in some areas isn’t that hot and need a refresh. Standing by for the haters and insane comments….

    Unlike the end-of-days attitudes most people seem to have on this site, Reston is becoming a better, livable place with this kind of development, encourages walkability and alternate transport mode usage (aka NOT CARS). I’m glad Boston Properties charges for parking as well, most of you entitled morons seem to think that free parking is a constitutional right right up there with freedom of speech. Reston is becoming greater, more urban, and I can’t wait for the next development to be announced because the miserable whining on this website is music to my ears.
