New apartment towers at Halley Rise expected in 2025

A pair of 480-unit buildings in the massive Halley Rise mixed-use development in Reston is nearing completion.

The Arbor at Halley Rise, located at the intersection of Reston Parkway and Sunrise Valley Drive, includes a pair of towers built on a common podium. It will also include 9,500-square-feet of retail, outdoor courtyards, a pool, amenities areas, club rooms and a fitness center.

Fairfax County is in the early phases of considering a sign plan for the project. In the application, the developer notes that the branding of the apartment building was “inspired by the serenity of nature.”

“This concept focuses on creating a sanctuary at home,” the application says. “A stylish font paired with a vintage illustration set creates a system that feels chic yet comfortable.”

Construction on the apartment component began in July of last year. Retail is expected to deliver in October 2024, with opening slated for April 2025, according to a site plan.

At completion, Halley Rise will include nearly 2 million square feet of office space, 1,600 residential units, 246,000 square feet of retail, 5 acres of parks and 3,700 parking spaces. The development’s most recent addition was the long-anticipated opening of Wegmans in January.

The project is divided into two phases. The first phase, which will be completed this year, includes 90,000 square feet of retail, 480,000 square feet of office space, 532 residential units and 771 parking spots.
