New Residential Mid-rise Building Proposed for Reston Corner

A 145-unit residential building could come to Reston Corner on the southwest corner of Reston Parkway and Sunrise Valley Drive.

Atlantic Realty Companies has submitted plans to the county to redevelop about 4.3 acres of the nearly 10-acre site known as Reston Corner, a process that would require the county to rezone land from light and industrial uses to residential use.

The site is within half a mile of the Reston Town Center Metro Station Platform, a location that allows residential uses of up to 30 units per acre if appropriate. The county’s Department of Planning and Zoning is reviewing the proposal, which was filed on Nov. 6 and is in the early phases of the county’s review process. A technical staff report has not yet been completed.

Surface parking spaces for existing office building at Reston Corner currently occupy the area where residential development is planned. The proposal includes up to 1,200 square feet of retail and 12 percent of the multi-family units will be set aside for workforce housing.

In the proposal, the developer wrote the building will provide an attractive, elegant element to Reston.

“The proposed addition of mid-rise residential development to the property will help provide an attractive and appropriate transition from the more intense development of the Transit Station Mixed Use area to the low-rise residential development to the south of the Property and will help provide additional residential uses in an area accessible to the Reston Town Center Metro station,” the proposal said.

The maximum height will be seven floors. The parking garage, have a maximum of four levels and will be screened by the residential building. Offices will continue to use the parking garage. An entrance plaza at the back of the residential building will include 22 surface parking spaces. Roughly 40 percent of the property is set aside as open space.
