Phase two of Reston Station — a massive mixed-use project at the Wiehle-Reston Metro Station — is officially coming to life.
Comstock Holding Co. Inc. has filed plans to activate nearly 16 acres south of the Dulles Toll Road with new development that mirrors the first phase of the project on the opposite side of the toll road.
The Reston-based company plans to replace one building at Commerce Metro Center — 11400 Commerce Park — with 1.28 million square feet of office, 469 residential units, a 163,000-square-foot hotel, 30,000 square feet of retail, and a child care center. Three office buildings at the site will remain.
“The purpose of this demolition is to achieve a tremendously enhanced public realm with essentially at-grade pedestrian pathways to the Metro Station and a large, centrally located urban park/plaza area flanked by ground-floor retail uses,” says a Feb. 8 application submitted by Comstock to the county.
The company could also use the space for an underground parking garage. A new mid-block street with a cycle track is planned through the center of the property.
Along Sunrise Valley Drive, two seven-story residential buildings are planned, along with three office buildings and a 16-story hotel. Called One Commerce, the 22-story building’s design will complement the Reston Station building designed by world-renowned architect Helmut Jahn.
The Washington Business Journal first reported news of the company’s project.
In planning materials submitted to the county, Comstock says the project has the potential to “transition the overall Metro Station area to a more balanced mix of uses given the significant number of existing office buildings in the area, many of which are likely to remain for years to come.”
The company did not return a request for comment from FFXnow. The application is currently in the county’s review process. Public hearings have not yet been scheduled.
Like the first phase of Reston Station, Comstock envisions creating districts with a unique identity.
Located at Sunrise Valley Drive’s intersections with Wiehle Avenue and Centennial Park Drive, Boulevard Commerce District would include two multifamily units with 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.
The 16-story hotel that would front the Dulles Toll Road will be called Commerce Hotel.
Comstock says open space is a vital part of its design, proposing a central plaza and a metro plaza to welcome pedestrians arriving from the Metro Station. Another park will flank residential buildings located at the property.
The developer paid more than $150 million for site acquisition in 2019 and 2020.
