NEW: Paid parking is coming to RTC West

(Updated at 11:45 a.m.) Reston Town Center and its neighboring development RTC West now have one thing in common: paid parking.

Real estate investment trust company JBG Smith plans to institute paid parking at the office and retail complex, a representative for the company told FFXnow.

The first three hours of parking will remain free at the site, said a spokesperson for JBG Smith. The timeline for implementing paid parking and the parking rates have not yet been determined.

The spokesperson said no further information on the change — including why it is under consideration — was available.

Tenants of the center reported varying understandings of how and when paid parking will go into effect. A representative for Starbucks noted that a parking garage tucked away behind the building still remains free.

Other tenants said it was unclear if parking will be validated beyond the three-hour free period.

This is not the first time parking has been a topic of discussion at the development, which has tenants like Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant, Bombay Velvet, and Tiki Thai.

In the past, frequenters have reported challenges navigating tight turns and on surface parking lots.

RTC West is also served by a four-level parking garage with 1,619 parking spaces.
