Maintenance issue pending, others resolved at Faraday Park

Residents of Faraday Park, an apartment community in Reston, may have noticed that several pending maintenance issues have been recently resolved.

Rooney Properties recently resolved maintenance issues at the community, according to a statement from the company.

“We take the concerns of our residents and larger community incredibly seriously. There is one remaining maintenance issue that is actively being resolved and scheduled to be completed in the coming weeks,” Rooney Properties said in a statement to FFXnow.

The resolution comes months after a Restonian contacted the company to address the issues on the site. For example, cables and wires that were strewn on a portion of the property were recently removed.

However, a vault still remains raised above the surface and a sidewalk extension appears to be incomplete, according to Adam Rubenstein, the resident.

Rubenstein said he was told that a contractor was unavailable to complete the work.

“Recently, after contacting the press, they suddenly were able to find a contractor and fix a couple of issues,” Rubenstein said.

The spokesperson for the company noted that none of the issues brought to the company’s attention “pose a safety risk to the community.” The spokesperson did not elaborate on what issues were resolved and exactly when they were resolved.

FFXnow contacted the company for a statement in early December about the maintenance issues. Several days later, wires on the property were removed.

The spokesperson did not respond to several requests for additional information.
