With little fanfare and discussion yesterday (Tuesday), the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved Tishman Speyer’s proposal to redevelop a Reston office park into seven mixed-use buildings next to the future Reston Town Center Metro Station.
The project, known as Reston Crossing, would replace two office buildings with 2 million square feet of development at the intersection the Dulles Toll Road and Reston Crossing. Plans were first pitched in January last year.
Details of Reston Crossing are below:
- Building 1: Up to 390,000 square feet of office and up to 15,000 square feet of retail
- Building 2: Up to 130,000 square feet with between 89 or 144 residential units
- Building 3: Up to 290,000 square feet in a residential-only building with between 144 to 322 units
- Building 4: Up to 510,000 square feet with office and retail use. The building could have up to 22 stories — the tallest of all the buildings
- Building 5: Up to 245,000 square feet with up to 261 residential units and some retail
- Building 6: Up to 230,000 square feet with up to 244 residential units and some retail
- Building 7: Up to 205,000 square feet with up to 222 units and 5,000 square feet of retail
The plan includes 890,000 square feet of office space, more than 1 million square feet of residential and up to 50,000 square feet of retail. More than 1,000 residential units are planned on the 14-acre site. Open light wells called “oculi” will allow pedestrians in open spaces to look down onto the parking level of the site.
The board also approved tweaks to Halley Rise, which will be anchored by Wegmans. One Reston Co. LLC and Two Reston Co. LLC sought to redistribute previously approved square footage to break up what the team called a “crowded block” on the project.
A plan to scale back the amount of office space at Reston Heights (11830 Sunrise Valley Drive) was also approved. The change reduced the amount of previously approved office space by 215,000 square feet.
