Reston Town Center North Plans Reviewed by DRB

The Reston Association Design Review Board held a work session last Friday with representatives of Fairfax County and INOVA, the two property owners of the approximately 47-acre Reston Town Center North properties.

The county and INOVA are working to implement the comprehensive plan guidance for this area, which includes a grid of streets and blocks for future development that will align with existing and future connections. The future development for these blocks will be comprised of a mix of residential, office, retail, open green space and community service facilities. The community service aspects include a new library, homeless shelter, human services and a recreation center.

The applicants presented a revision to the site plan that responded to earlier comments from the Design Review Board, which provided a more curvilinear, tree-lined street pattern with specific tree save areas and the addition of a rectangular ballfield.

The DRB was generally pleased with the progress on this revision and suggested the applicant look for additional opportunities for tree save in existing natural areas for community activities, provide more of a sense of character through graphic design to the park-like areas, including parking, and include additional renderings to provide a sense of scale for future buildings in the development blocks and how they will relate to the surrounding buildings.

The applicants’ proposed schedule would include coming back to the DRB and Reston Planning and Zoning Committee this fall.
