Various pieces to redevelop land at the intersection of Bowman Towne Drive and Town Center Parkway — known as Reston Town Center North — are moving along as Fairfax County seeks applications for the project.
Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn directed staff at a Board of Supervisors meeting yesterday (Tuesday) to conduct a master plan study for the county-owned land in RTC North.
Alcorn encouraged staff to work closely with the ongoing effort to amend the Reston Comprehensive Plan and to complete the study by the end of the year.
“The time is right to move forward with a master plan with locations for critically needed community facilities in Reston Town Center North,” Alcorn said.
The project would include a new Embry Rucker Shelter, facilities for services and permanent housing, and a new Reston Regional Library.
In February, the county received an unsolicited proposal from Foulger-Pratt to redeveloping a nearly three-acre parcel of land owned by the county into an apartment building for working families, a new library and free parking.
The unsolicited proposal prompted the county to issue a call for other proposals for the project. The application period closed on May 16.
Alcorn established a Reston Town Center North Public Facilities Community Task Force through a board matter in April.
A review of proposed changes to Reston’s Comprehensive Plan is also underway. Staff are currently going through recommendations from a task force that produced a draft after hundreds of hours of meetings on the topic.
