A new future could be in store for a drive-in bank at South Lakes Village Center in Reston.

The owner of the nearly 10-acre retail center is seeking the county’s permission to convert a drive-thru bank on the property into a drive-thru fast food restaurant, according to a June 15 application.

“By converting this site into a fast-food restaurant, the applicant seeks to maintain the structure of the building and ensure that the building remains a vital component of the South Lakes Village Center,” the application says.

But the application does not disclose the future tenant, which would be located at 11120 South Lakes Drive. Materials simply note that the existing building will “support a new restaurant tenant while carefully fitting into the surrounding context of the existing South Lakes Village Center.”

The 1,675-square-foot-space was previously occupied by a drive-thru bank. The interior of the space will be repurposed for restaurant use, but the tenant will use most of the previous bank’s sidewalks, landscaping, utilities, drive-thru and parking areas.

South Lakes Village Center and the Chevy Chase Land Company did not return a request for comment from FFXnow. The center is anchored by Safeway and includes tenants like Starbucks, Chipotle, Red’s Table, Custom Ink and Truist.

Great Clips is coming to a vacant suite in South Lakes Village Center (via Google Maps)

A hair salon is slated to arrive at South Lakes Village Center.

Great Clips is set to take over space formerly occupied by Hair Cuttery, according to county permits.

The business did not immediately comment on when it plans to open up shop, but the county’s permit database indicates that an application for minor interior alterations was processed earlier this month. It’ll be located at 11120 South Lakes Drive, Suite E.

The salon joins a village center with other businesses like Custom Ink, Starbucks, Red’s Table, Cafesano, and Chipotle. The center is anchored by Safeway.

Great Clips has other locations across the country and several in the Northern Virginia area, including in Sterling and Ashburn.
