Town of Herndon staff are currently reviewing building permits for the stalled redevelopment of downtown Herndon.

At a Herndon Town Council meeting on Tuesday (Nov. 14), Town Manager Bill Ashton II said the review should be completed by the holidays.

“It’ll be ready to rock and roll,” Ashton said.

Reston-based developer Comstock paused the development — which is a public-private partnership with the town — in April last year, citing unfavorable market conditions. Movement on the project resumed around August when Comstock submitted a revised site plan to the town.

Once expected to break ground in 2019, the project will transform nearly 5 acres of land into a mixed-use development with 273 apartments, roughly 17,000 square feet of retail, a new arts center, and a 726-space parking garage.

Ashton told the council that he plans to meet with Comstock officials today (Thursday) after nearly three weeks.

The development pause can be in place for up to two years since it went into effect. That means the latest construction would begin is April 2024.
