Reston’s Vantage Hill redevelopment moves forward on expedited timeline

The redevelopment of the Vantage Hill condominiums in Reston could move forward on a faster track than previously anticipated.

At the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday (Aug. 2), the board unanimously approved a request to expedite the redevelopment of the southwest portion of the property — largely the pool area, which closed years ago — with 28 townhouses.

The 152-unit complex was built in 1962 and was later converted into a condominium community known as Vantage Hill condominium. The development team, CM Vantage LLC, plans to redevelop the abandoned pool area for for-sale residential units.

“The sale is intended to generate revenue to address a backlog of capital improvements facing the existing condominium development,” Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn said.

The redevelopment application is set to go before the Fairfax County Planning Commission on Nov. 2. The applicant wants a set and expedited date for a hearing before the board once the commission approves the project.

A public hearing before the board — which is typically tied to a vote — is currently set for Dec. 6 at 3:30 p.m.

Plans to redevelop the community have been brewing for years, as the boxy condominium homes continue on a steady decline in maintenance.

Sales generated from the for-sale townhomes are expected to help finance $4.5 million in needed upgrades. Target items include new windows and doors, upgraded heating, new plumbing, a bigger playground, and metered electrical service for each unit.
