A public hearing for Boston Properties’ Reston Gateway project, which is designed to bridge the future Reston Town Center Metro Station with the community’s urban core is set for June 27 before the Fairfax County Planning Commission.

Boston Properties has proposed to include up to 3.5 million square feet of transit-oriented development on 33 acres immediately north of the future RTC Metro Station.

The Reston Planning & Zoning Committee will receive a presentation on the proposal at 7:30 p.m. today in the North County Government Center (1801 Cameron Glen Drive).

Fannie Mae will lease roughly 850,000 square feet of the property. At full buildout, Reston Gateway may include up to 1,700 residential units, 570 hotel rooms, 200,000 square feet of retail and nearly 2 million square feet of office space.

    Who couldn’t use 2mil more sq feet of office space?

  • Brian Ray

    Awfully big plans for a company going into receivership. Where is Joe Light to cover this?

  • Overdeveleoped

    When will everyone start calling it reston office park/ reston office center?

    boston properties is not cultivating a ‘town center’ by any means.

    • Peanut

      There is 3.5 million square feet available, of which 2 million would be offices. That leaves plenty of space for other uses. Keep in mind a lot of that square footage is contained in high rises, so it will feel like a lot less. That’s the whole point of mixed-use, and you’ll see it lot in cities/places that know how to develop (take a look at Ballston).

    As I endured the traffic congestion from whiele to reston parkway, my gratitude to Hudgins increased

    Thank you

    30 floors, 400’ tall? I actually like it as a very real centerpiece and signature for downtown. I would just like to limit almost all of the development more than a half mile away.

    We only need one more tall building in Reston – the bio dome. It will be the mother of buildings so to speak the womb of all others. No pollution of course, only bikes and farts. Hudgins, KP, Bulova and crew all will have wet dreams tonite.
