Reston Master Plan Special Study Development Scenarios


Scenarios

"SUBURBAN CENTER" DEVELOPMENT SCENARIOS

The following development scenarios are the products of Task Force and Staff discussions of three primary elements reviewed by Station Area Subcommittees and the Vision Committee: (1) General Locations of Uses (2) Mix of Uses, and (3) Relative Intensities.

 

DEVELOPMENT SCENARIO G

Scenario G is the latest development scenario under consideration by the Task Force and Planning Staff. Land use information generated by Planning Staff is now being forwarded to County agencies for analysis. Estimated time line for analysis runs from November 2012 through April 2013. 

Scenario G Density allocation map, estimated development levels, and jobs-housing data

Planning staff and the Task Force discussed Scenario G during the following Task Force Meetings:

  1. Tuesday, October 9th- Discussion of Reston Master Plan Special Study Phase 1 Schedule and Scenario G
  2. Tuesday, October 23rd - Discussion of Jobs-Housing, GMU Updated Forecast, land use Scenario G and Task Force Report
  3. Tuesday, November 13th - Presentation on draft Land Use Scenario G
  4. Tuesday, November 27th - Additional information regarding Draft Land Use Scenario G, Reston Town Center District and Herndon District

 

2030 DEVELOPMENT SCENARIO (Scenario E)

At its September 13, 2011 meeting, the Reston Master Plan Special Study Task Force voted to send a 2030 development scenario to various County agencies for impact analysis. This scenario (also called "blue map" because of the map's blue color palette) will set a benchmark for understanding the development impact of the intensities, locations, and mix of uses derived from the Station Area Subcommittee reports and Steering Committee discussions. The scenario assumes the GMU-High forecast is the projected absorption of development for the Reston/Dulles Rail Corridor, but also includes an additional 20% of residential beyond the GMU-High forecasts.

  1. 2030 Development Scenario map and density allocation tables illustrate the slightly modified forecast of George Mason University's 2030 High forecasts with the addition of 20% more residential than forecasted.

RESIDENTIALLY-INTENSIVE SCENARIO (Scenario F)

At its November 1, 2011 meeting, the Reston Master Plan Special Study Task Force voted to send a second 2030 development scenario to Fairfax Department of Transportation for impact analysis.  This "residentially-intensive" scenario (also called "green map" because of the map's green color palette) is a strictly hypothetic look at the impact of increasing the proportion of new residential development to new non-residential development (particularly new office development) by 2030. 

  1. “Residentially-Intensive” Scenario map and density allocation tables illustrate the addition of significant amounts of new residential development, primarily in the areas between ¼ and ½ mile from the Reston Town Center station platform and the Reston East-Wiehle Avenue station platform.

  3. Reston-wide & Suburban Center Jobs to Housing Ratio Charts
