Reston Town Center North (RTCN)

arial map of redevelopment areaLocated midway between Tysons and Dulles International Airport, future Reston Town Center North is part of a quickly urbanizing area in northwestern Fairfax County. The Board of Supervisors envisions redeveloping the property from a collection of irregularly-shaped parcels, which are incompatible with Reston Town Center and surrounding development, into a vibrant urban, mixed-use environment that transitions from the Reston Town Center to the existing surrounding development. Reston Town Center North will be accessible from Dulles Toll Road, Fairfax County Parkway, and Reston Parkway, and nearby public transportation includes the Wiehle-Reston East Metrorail station (two miles) and the Reston Town Center Metrorail station (one mile).

Community Benefits of Redevelopment

  • Creation of a central green space open for public use
  • Mixed-use development compatible with adjacent Reston Town Center
  • Walkable community connected to surrounding communities, Reston Town Center, and public transportation
  • Expanded library to serve growing population
  • Upgraded delivery of human services
  • Affordable housing provided for workforce 

Consistent with Fairfax County's commitment to economic growth and revitalization, as outlined in the Strategic Plan to Facilitate Fairfax County's Economic Success, and commitment to social equity, as outlined in the One Fairfax Resolution, and in partnership with Inova Health Care Services (Inova), the county is leveraging its assets to help create a transit-oriented, pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use development that embraces Reston's motto of "Live, Work, Play", while also upgrading public facilities and services.

Approved Conceptual Plan

approved conceptual planOn July 20, 2021, the project team from Inova Health Care Services and the Fairfax County Building Design and Construction Division received approval from the Reston Design Review Board (DRB) for an amended concept plan for the proposed street layout, central green and tree save areas. The amended plan included a minor modification of the street layout to allow for the size of the central green to be increased to 3.5 acres.

A mix of uses is planned for the future of the property that include office, residential, retail and multiple expanded public uses including the Reston Regional Library, the Embry Rucker Shelter and Supportive Housing, and the North County Human Service Building. Approval of the final development plan will allow the co-applicants to adjust the property lines and exchange real estate. Actual development within the resulting blocks will be subject to future community input in addition to the DRB and will follow the adoption of the Amendment to the Reston Comprehensive Plan. Refer to the Reston Comprehensive Plan Study site for additional information.
