Reston Association Launches New System for Home Resale Documents

Reston Association has launched a new system for members to request resale disclosure documents. The system, which is run through a partnership with WelcomeLink, went into effect on Monday (Oct. 16).

Individuals seeking to purchase resale disclosure documents must set-up an account with WelcomeLink.

Ways to improve the process for requesting and managing resale disclosures have been on RA’s radar for several months. The documents detail design or maintenance violations observed during inspections by staff.

Users of the new system must confirm the address for which they seek documents and orders can be processed using a credit card, debit card or check.

Only owners or the owners’ authorized agent can purchase and review resale disclosure documents — the fees for which are determined by state law.

Shatterproof, a national nonprofit that aims to end the stigma associated with addiction, will host a 5k walk and run at Reston Town Center on Saturday (Oct. 20).

Decision on ‘Midline’ Delayed to November Again

The Fairfax County Planning Commission delayed a decision on the Midline, a 1.8-million-square-foot mixed-use project, for the second time.

The project by JBG Smith, EYA and Chevy Chase Land Co. aims to create a 17.5-acre development east of Wiehle-Avenue and south of Sunset Hills Road with four blocks of development.

Hunter Mill District Planning Commissioner John Carter said the county is still working with the development team to ensure the development has a sufficient number of workforce and affordable dwelling units, as well as a suitable mix of assisted living and multi-family units.

“The applicant is making progress on this,” Carter said at an Oct. 11 Planning Commission meeting. The development team is meeting the county “halfway” on its requirements for a balanced mix of affordable housing and appropriate services for residents of assisted-living units and multi-family units.

Block A would include one building with 127 independent units and a 33-bed assisted living facility. The second building would include a 325-unit multi-family building and around 103,870 square feet of other uses. Block B would include a 225-unit multi-family building and around 260,000 square feet of office space. The 14-story office building is the tallest in the development.  The plan for blocks C and D is more flexible, with a mix of multi-family units and townhouses proposed. Overall, the residential portion of the development would serve up to 1,500 residents.

A decision was deferred to Nov. 1 at 7:30 p.m. The case, which was previously deferred in late September to Oct. 11, has not yet been docketed for the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.
