Major Expansion Proposed for RTC West

JBG Smith’s RTC West project is slowly welcoming new restaurants like Nando’s Peri-Peri, honegrow and Mezeh. But more is coming at the site, including nearly 1.4 million square feet of new development, up to 575 multifamily units in two buildings and three new office buildings.

The Fairfax County Planning Commission will consider the proposal, which transforms the the office park north of Sunset Hills Road and West of Town Center Parkway, on Thursday (July 26).

So far, the project is anchored by three existing six-story office buildings and two parking garages, as well as ground floor retail options.

If approved by the county, the project would have two new residential buildings, an additional 700,000 square feet of office space across three new buildings, two parking garages, a retail-only building and 3.4 acres of open space across nearly 13.4 acres.

County staff recommended approving the project.

    Literally the opposite of what we want. Great to be a Restonian!

      I want this. It *is* a great time to be a Restonian.

    Given the high probability Ffx Cty has traffic issues on the surface I would want to gently remind the general populace not to flush their toilets til the wee morning hours.

    The underground management.

    RIP Reston.

      Hudgins killed Reston years ago
      Just more nails in the coffin

    Another 120 “workforce” housing units?

      and more woonfers aka bike lanes

    This looks great. Definitely hoping for some more experiential retail and perhaps nice nightlife spots for the link between the metro and the town center (especially with the big development across the street in Reston Gateway). Lots of potential here.

      Try Tysons? Or DC?

      Good thing you ride a bike, because you’ll spend hours in a car trying to get there, and trying to park

    And traffic gridlock from 5am to midnight.

    Ffx never met a developer from whom they won’t tale bribes. Excuse me “campaign contributions.”
