Construction on Herndon Downtown Development Pushed to Early 2020

Comstock Partners will not break ground on the public-private redevelopment of downtown Herndon until early 2020 –sometime after the previously anticipated groundbreaking this year.

The project, which includes a $3.6 million contribution from the town, would create a cultural arts district in the town and a multi-family development with around 273 apartments, 17,000 square feet of retail, an arts center, an arts plaza, and a 787-space parking garage.

At a recent Herndon Town Council meeting, staff indicated that the developer and the town were working through legal agreements on the approved project.

A spokesperson for the town declined to comment on why the groundbreaking was pushed back. A spokesperson for Comstock Partners did not provide comments on the record.

The town’s website states the following as of Monday night:

The following actions are anticipated prior to closing on sale of the 4.675 acres of town-owned land to Comstock, at a date yet to be determined: 1) further agreement to protect town financial interests, as outlined in the Comprehensive Agreement and requiring Town Council approval; 2) application by Comstock to the town’s building official for building permits; and 3) completion by Comstock of its internal processes, in preparation for construction on the project

The 4.7-acre site on which the development would take place is north of Elden Street, east of Center Street, west of Station Street and south of the Washington & Old Dominion Trail.
