Reston StationIt looks as though another huge development could soon go up near Reston Station.

Developer Comstock Partners has submitted plans to Fairfax County for a new mixed-use development, to be located south of Sunset Hills Road and immediately north of Reston Station and the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station. The Washington Business Journal first reported on the new development last week.

If all goes according to plan, the new development would consist of 500 residential units, about 91,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and another 178,000 square feet for office or hotel use.

Comstock, which had its eye on the site earlier this year, will reportedly call the development The Promenade at Reston Station. Additionally, the developer plans to connect the new building to its adjacent developments via a “woonerf” on Reston Station Boulevard, WBJ reported.

  • Wonder if they have talked to The Donald? He is determined to slash federal spending and employment.. So we may see a pause coming until the US economy adjusts..

    A woonerf — how marvelously European in the land of failed Burtalist eyesores.

      “Woonerf” comes to us from the Netherlands where they have no choice but extremely dense development. Here, it suits only developers.

  • Why do you bother?

    And they better surround it with a bubbl….er….grocery store, drug store, etc. because while those residents may Metro to work, they’re still gonna drive to everything else. You think traffic is bad NOW?

    Renaissance Centro has also submitted plans for a 20 story condominium that would take the place of the existing four story building which is there now. This is the company that developed the Harrison, Stratford House, Carlton-almost everything along Reston Parkway in front of the Town Center.

    I am surprised this isn’t the lead story of this article. This will be the first new condominium building near Town Center. Everything else has been rental for the past several years. Its height will be 254 feet which is almost as tall as One Freedom Square.

    I’m actually in favor of this building: it’s the right location for a signature building that reflects optimism that Reston’s housing market is improving. Considering how fast the Harrison rented and how well the Stratford House condos have supported their price, this should be extremely successful.

      The four-story looks very dated and out of place these days. Happy to see it go. Now, what about the equally dated conglomeration along Bowman Green Dr.?
