After more than a year-long pause, the redevelopment of downtown Herndon appears to be moving again.
Reston-based developer Comstock Companies has filed a revised site plan for the long-anticipated project, which will transform nearly 5 acres of land into a mixed-use community with 273 apartments and roughly 17,000 square feet of retail. A new arts center and a 726-space parking garage are also planned.
At a Herndon Town Council meeting earlier this month, acting town manager Scott Robinson said the town received the revised site plan, which he described as a “big step” in “reworking their design to bring it up to the current code.”
The revised site plan was not immediately available for review.
Comstock declined to offer any comment on the redevelopment project, which is a public-private partnership between the company and the town.
The company elected to pause the project in July last year due to “economic conditions.” The cost of the $101 million project increased by $25 million due to issues related to materials, labor and workforce restrictions, FFXnow previously reported.
The pause can be in place for up to two years since it went into effect. That means the latest construction would begin is April 2024.
The project was anticipated to break ground nearly two years ago.
A sign on a fence surrounding the site of the project has since said “excitement is building.”
