Photos: Upgrade of Reston Town Center’s public spaces nearly finished

Reston Town Center’s main public spaces have gotten a facelift. 

A visual look shows that much of the work on the public spaces is completed or underway, bringing new life to areas that have been untouched for more than 30 years.

Upgrades to the pavilion include two fire pits next to Market Street, large fans, a wooden deck, the renovation of the lower base area, expanded seating, tiered landscaping, and more outdoor seating areas on artificial turf.

Sasaki Associates led the design work on the project.

The construction of the Fountain Square Pavilion was completed in October as part of a makeover of other common areas. The ice rink also opened in November. 

Boston Properties says work on the fountain area is slated to be completed in early February.

“We will be turning on the fountain in the spring as we normally do,” Sapna Yathiraj, a spokesperson for the company, told FFXnow.

The upgrades come as several tenants aim to open at the town center. Tatte Bakery plans to open at at 11910 Market Street.

Dallas-based wine restaurant Sixty Vines will take space formerly occupied by Clydes at Reston, and Piso y Nazca Ceviche Gastrobar will open in space formerly occupied by Vapiano.
