The demolition of vacated Lake Anne Fellowship House will begin in the first week of November, according to Reston Association.

The work will continue through January of next year of the former fellowship house.

“Residents of the area are advised to be very vigilant while outside the Lake Anne Fellowship building. During this work, there will be additional noise and higher traffic in the area,” RA wrote in its weekly newsletter distribution to the community.

In anticipation of the planned demolition, the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department has been using the vacated building — which was previously home to more than 300 older adult residents — as a training location for local fire departments.

The affordable housing nonprofit Enterprise Community Development plans to redevelop the fellowship house after demolition takes place sometime next year.

Over the summer, residents of the fellowship house moved into a brand-new residence across the street, leaving behind the 1970s building that was one of the first high rises and the first affordable senior housing property in Reston.

The new Lake Anne House — located at 11444 North Shore Drive — is a $86 million project spearheaded by ECD and Fellowship Square Foundation.
