Final Vote on Residential Project at Reston Arboretum Expected Next Week

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will vote on a plan to add a residential component to Reston Arboretum on Oct. 16.

Pulte Homes Corp. seeks to rezone the property from industrial uses to planned development commercial, which would allow the property to be used for office and residential uses.

The proposal calls for 44 single-family attached residential units and a parking garage. A four-story office building, which was built in 1998, will remain on the property. The site has been marketed as within walking distance from the Herndon-Monroe Park & Ride and the future Herndon Metro station.

The Fairfax County Planning Commission voted unanimously to approve the project, with one abstention. The project is located at 12700 Sunrise Valley Drive and the vote is docketed for around 3:30 p.m.

    Cut down the trees and use them to make free houses

    Of course they approved it. Is there anything they *don’t* approve?

    I hope they require fixing up the paths around there as part of it.

    I recognize the live and work element but i fail to recognize the play element.

    • 30yearsinreston

      if one gets a free house, the play is included

      It really is a terrible place to put housing…between the freeways, the metro station, the office blocks, the left-to-rot “nature” park, and parking garages — who would want to live there?

    So many new houses. And where will the new schools go, when they quadruple the population? I guess we tear out the forest. Thank you SO much Cathy H!

    What concerns me about the development south of the toll road near the Herndon Metro station is Van Buren where it crosses the toll road and goes into Herndon proper. It’s a choke point in every sense of the word and as far as I’ve seen, ZERO plans to make it otherwise.
