Construction of the Lofts at Reston Station, a redevelopment project with 32 apartments and 12 two-over-two townhouses north of the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station, is underway.
The development, located at 1825 Michael Faraday Drive south of Sunset Hills Drive, is expected to open by early fall, a representative for Pulte told Reston Now.
“Construction is coming along. We are in framing this week and we are looking to open in the early fall,” said Megan Skupien, marketing manager for the Pulte’s Mid-Atlantic division.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved the project, which replaced an office building and a parking lot, in November 2016. According to promotional material, one- or two-level condominiums start at $600,000.
As part of the project, Pulte also plans to extend Michael Faraday Drive and Reston Station Boulevard along the property, beginning to establish a local street grid for the area. Reston’s master planning documents envision turning Reston Station Boulevard into the new main street for the area surrounding Wiehle-Reston East.
Residents of The Lofts will be Reston Association members.
The developer committed to the following proffers, according to a presentation given to the Reston Planning & Zoning Committee in 2016:
- $173,376 for athletic fields
- $168,010 to Fairfax County Public Schools
- $24,040 to help construct a traffic signal
- $44,000 for local parks
- A buyout of $20,898 to separate from the Metro Tax District
