Apartments and Townhouses Coming Near Two Phase 2 Silver Line Stations
Dec. 12, 2016
Woodland Park Waterview will bring townhouses and apartments within about half mile from two future Silver Lines stations in Herndon.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisor approved the project on Dec. 6, 2016, that will rise up on an almost 12-acre site east of Centreville Road and north of Woodland Park Drive. The undeveloped property sits about a half mile east of the Herndon Metro Station and west of the Innovation Station.
Woodland Park will offer three different kinds of housing for people with a mix of incomes:
- 295 apartments in a five story building at the intersection of Verisign Way and Woodland Park Road. The building will wrap around a five-story parking garage at the center of the complex.
- 56 two-over-two, townhouse-style multifamily units that will be four stories tall with units that are about 2,140 square feet in size each. Two parking spaces would be provided for each unit. One in the garage and a second space in on the driveway.
- 32 attached, four-story townhouses that would average 2,800 square feet in size with a two car garage on the lower level.
In total, the project will provide 46 affordable or workforce units.
The development will offer convenient access to transit, including the Herndon Metro Station, through pedestrian trails and bike lanes along Woodland Park Road. Developer NVR Inc will build an on-street bike lane on the north side Woodland Park Road to Verisign Way. From Verisign Way, an off-street, 10-foot shared use path will run along Woodland Park Road to Centreville Road.
Woodland Park also will feature approximately 2.82 acres of public open space onsite. This includes a 1.83-acre community park next to a stormwater management pond on the property’s western side. There is also .23-acre pedestrian promenade that will run north to south between the apartment and two-over-two townhouse units. On the property’s northern edge, the development includes a .76-acre linear park with an eight-foot wide trail, landscaping and amphitheater.
NVR also will contribute $900,000 to the county in order to buy property for an off-site athletic field that will serve the area near the development.
