South Lakes Village Center seeks to convert vacant bank into drive-thru fast food restaurant

A new future could be in store for a drive-in bank at South Lakes Village Center in Reston.

The owner of the nearly 10-acre retail center is seeking the county’s permission to convert a drive-thru bank on the property into a drive-thru fast food restaurant, according to a June 15 application.

“By converting this site into a fast-food restaurant, the applicant seeks to maintain the structure of the building and ensure that the building remains a vital component of the South Lakes Village Center,” the application says.

But the application does not disclose the future tenant, which would be located at 11120 South Lakes Drive. Materials simply note that the existing building will “support a new restaurant tenant while carefully fitting into the surrounding context of the existing South Lakes Village Center.”

The 1,675-square-foot-space was previously occupied by a drive-thru bank. The interior of the space will be repurposed for restaurant use, but the tenant will use most of the previous bank’s sidewalks, landscaping, utilities, drive-thru and parking areas.

South Lakes Village Center and the Chevy Chase Land Company did not return a request for comment from FFXnow. The center is anchored by Safeway and includes tenants like Starbucks, Chipotle, Red’s Table, Custom Ink and Truist.
