Reston Then and Now: North Point Village Center

Most of the new developments around town profiled by Reston Then and Now are village centers with new residents cropping up around them over time, but North Point Village Center is a little different.

Fairfax County’s Historic Imagery Viewer shows how the village grew first with the center being placed later at it’s heart — filling in Reston’s northern frontier.

Not including the Reston Town Center, North Point was the last of Reston’s village centers. In the 1960s, while the other villages were under construction, North Point was a sweeping expanse of untamed wilderness.

Construction on North Point Village started in 1982, and in 1993 the North Point Village Center opened to the public.

The area has changed very little from overhead since 2002, but there’s plenty of turnover on the ground. In December Koko FitClub closed, and a new Thai restaurant opened two months later down the street.

A Reston Now poll earlier this year ranked North Point Village Center as Reston’s second favorite, behind Lake Anne.
