The redevelopment of a seven-acre site on Reston Station Boulevard is nearly complete transforming low-rise office buildings into a residential development with some ground-floor retail.
Faraday Park, which includes two residential towers with 408 units and 26 townhouses, has opened its second tower — Faraday East — for pre-leasing. The building, which was formerly the site of a parking lot and is located at 11201 Reston Station Boulevard, includes 166 apartments.
Faraday West, which includes 242 apartments and 10,000 square feet of retail on the corner of Reston Station Boulevard and Michael Faraday Drive, is roughly 70% leased.
A spokesperson for the company tells FFXnow that the development distinguished itself from other housing options because of its makerspace and commercial kitchen, along with ground-floor retail.
“Faraday Park is also walkable from the Wiehle-Reston Metro Stop and within blocks of major offices including Google, Microsoft and Oracle,” the spokesperson said.
Townhouses flank both buildings.
The east tower includes a range of apartments from studios to three-bedroom units ranging from 465 to 1,500 square feet. The seven-story building also includes a makerspace with woodworking tools, a photo room, two fitness centers, two kitchens, common rooms, outdoor dining areas, a rooftop pool and sundeck, along with a playground and co-working space.
“Rooney Properties and BMC are pleased by how well the West Tower was received by the community and to see how current residents are taking advantage of amenities like the state-of-the-art fitness center and beautiful rooftop,” said Chris Oursler, Director of Construction and Development for Rooney Properties.
The project was designed by DC-based architecture firm MV+A Architects and will be managed by The Bozzuto Group.
Monthly rent for the smaller apartments — at 590 square feet — starts at around $1,817 while the larger apartments go for $3,885 per month.
The project includes 31 workforce dwelling units in the west tower and 20 in the east tower as part of the county’s affordable housing program, according to the spokesperson.
