Charter Oak Apartments Under New Management

Wheelock Street Capital acquired Charter Oak Apartments in partnership with local investment firm Canandaigua & Pratt Holdings this month.

The news comes as Wheelock Communities, an affiliate of the company, acquired Hidden Creek Country Club in October. The club is adjacent to the apartments, which are located at 11637 Charter Oak Court.

The real estate firm has no immediate plans to redevelop the apartment community, which has 262 units and a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments.

“As for future plans, they have retained Gates Hudson to manage the property in its current form,” wrote Jeff Laliberte, Wheelock’s managing director, in a statement to Reston Now.

“We plan to invest additional capital into the property in the coming years and look forward to continuing to provide the Reston community with attractive housing options,” he added.

At the adjacent golf course, however, the company’s affiliate has hinted at possible redevelopment, including “new housing choices,” in the future.

A company representative would not disclose the terms of the apartment acquisition, including the purchase price.

WBJ: Former NFL Pro Bowler Joins Reston Firm

Former NFL Pro Bowler Charles Mann has joined Verity Commercial, a Reston-based commercial real estate services firm, the Washington Business Journal reports.

Since retiring from football in the 1994, Mann, 56, helped broker major deals, including the lease for Southland Industries at the Brick Yard Business Park in Prince George’s County, Maryland and the $7.9 million sale of Franklin Farm Medical Office, according to the report.

Before turning commercial real estate, Mann was a former Washington Redskins defensive end and played 12 years in the National Football League. After graduating from Strayer University he shifted to business development by working for companies like Mechanical Design Group, according to the report. He launched a government contracting firm called Charles Mann Enterprises three years ago.

He will handle sales and business development at Verity Commercial.

Construction to Begin Monday on 210 New Senior Living Units

On Monday, construction is set to begin on 210 new senior living units in Reston.

The units, to be called Hunters Woods at Trails Edge, will be located in place of the former United Christian Parish Church at 2222 Colts Neck Road.

Of the 210 units, 90 will be designated as independent living, 81 for assisted living, 15 for special needs, and 24 assigned to memory care.

The project will offer 20 percent of the independent living units as affordable units, and 4 percent of the assisted living beds will be available for residents who are eligible for the Virginia Department of Ageing and Rehabilitative Services Auxiliary Grant Program.

The project will offer 20 percent of the independent living units as affordable units, and 4 percent of the assisted living beds will be available for residents who are eligible for the Virginia Department of Ageing and Rehabilitative Services Auxiliary Grant Program.

Fairfax County supervisors approved the project in May 2016. A ceremonial groundbreaking was held at the site in March.

The community will occupy a 4.3-acre lot across the street from Hunters Woods Village Center. Hunters Woods at Trails Edge will offer modern units with dining rooms, family rooms, activity rooms, fitness centers and indoor parking. The facility will also include an arts studio, barber shop, and salon.

Advanced security and communication technology will be installed, and residents will have access to community-wide WiFi, say project representatives.

In addition, a new bus shelter will be built on the property to allow for access to public transit, and the facility’s shuttle service will provide transportation to additional transit, medical facilities and shopping centers.

Developers said Reston’s Turquoise Trail pathway will be lighted, as it passes under Colts Neck Road to Hunters Woods Village Center, where residents will have access to Reston Community Center, and six “Life-Trail stations” designed specifically for senior fitness will be installed along the nature pathway on site.

Additionally, five outdoor terraces will overlook landscaped grounds, mature woods and nature trails.

Hunters Woods at Trails Edge is being developed by a team comprised of Atlantic Realty Companies, AEW Capital Management and IntegraCare.

“Hunters Woods at Trails Edge has been a long time in the planning,” said David A. Ross, president of Atlantic Companies. “We are proud to bring this leading-edge amenity to the community, the first of its kind in Reston.”

Helping to put the project together was Avison Young senior housing expert Jim Kornick, who works on a team with Dan Baker that specializes in senior housing investment across the country.

“It will be an exceptional community that will provide the highest quality of care,” said Kornick, “You could not ask for a nicer community in a better location.”

Representatives said construction costs are estimated at $72 million for the 230,000-square-foot project. Construction is set to begin Monday, and is expected to be complete by January of 2019.

Comstock Submits Plans For New Development Near Reston Station

Reston StationIt looks as though another huge development could soon go up near Reston Station.

Developer Comstock Partners has submitted plans to Fairfax County for a new mixed-use development, to be located south of Sunset Hills Road and immediately north of Reston Station and the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station. The Washington Business Journal first reported on the new development last week.

If all goes according to plan, the new development would consist of 500 residential units, about 91,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and another 178,000 square feet for office or hotel use.

Comstock, which had its eye on the site earlier this year, will reportedly call the development The Promenade at Reston Station. Additionally, the developer plans to connect the new building to its adjacent developments via a “woonerf” on Reston Station Boulevard, WBJ reported.

County Supervisors OK Planned Apartment Near Wiehle-Reston East

Aerial view of Lincoln apartment complex location/Credit: Fairfax CountyThe Fairfax County Board of Supervisors this week approved plans for a new 260-unit apartment complex near the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station.

The seven-story apartment complex, dubbed “the Lincoln,” will be located next to the site of the future Metro Commerce Center, a multi-acre development by Vornado Realty planned to consist of four towers featuring offices, residences, retail and a hotel.

The Lincoln is slated to be built on three acres near the corner of Sunrise Valley Drive and Commerce Park Drive, where a surface-level parking garage for the Executive II office building is located now.

The firm developing the Lincoln, Wiehle Station Ventures LLC, told the board that the apartment complex will feature an interior Rendering of Lincoln Property Co. Project off Sunrise Valley Drive/Credit: Fairfax Countycourtyard and underground parking.

“The developer will also help to build the planned shared-use path along Sunrise Valley,” the board said in its announcement Thursday.

County Supervisors Approve Plans for Vornado Development Near Wiehle-Reston East

Vornado's Wiehle Reston East development, photo via KTGY Group and Studio Landscape ArchitectureThe Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has approved the rezoning of nearly 12 acres of office space near the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station along with Vornado Realty Trust’s plans for its transformation.

The area, adjacent to the Metro station at Wiehle Avenue and Sunrise Valley Drive, will be redeveloped by Vornado into 1.5 million square feet of residences, hotels, restaurants and retail. Washington Business Journal first reported on the approval yesterday.

The nearly 12 acres have long been zoned as industrial. With Vornado’s redevelopment plan, three existing six-story office buildings will remain, but the rest will be transformed into a live-work-dine-shop destination for those who want to be close to Metro and Reston’s busy business corridor.

The development will include a seven-story building that will fit up to 200 residences, another 24-story building that will fit up to 300 residences, a new 22-story office building of more than 350,000 square feet, and a new 14-story hotel that will feature around 175 rooms, according to Vornado’s application as reported by the county.

These new buildings will be among some of the tallest in Reston.

Occupants of the new development will have access to both the north and south sides of the Metro station, from Sunrise Valley Drive via Commerce Park Drive. Retail and dining businesses would be on ground floors of the buildings and would aim to minimize car use.

The plans also include a total of 1.5 acres of open space, with small parks, bicycle tracks and a promenade along the businesses, and will feature public art including a water feature.

Residents of the development will also be Reston Association members, and therefore would have access to the pools, tennis courts, event and recreation opportunities that come with membership.
