14. Amazon closed in on the area by acquiring a Herndon property. The 57-acre site has an assessed value of $80.7 million.

13. A South Lakes High School student was killed in a car crash in Oakton. Police said that speed may have been a factor in the incident.

12. Panera Bread also shuttered in Reston Town Center this month, leaving another vacancy in the town center. No word yet on what will replace the business.
