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 planIn November of 2019, the project team from Inova Health Care Services and the Fairfax County Building Design and Construction Division received conceptual approval from the Reston Design Review Board (DRB) for the proposed street layout, central green and tree save areas and to establish future developable block in conformance with the Reston Master plan. This approval comes after several work sessions between the project team and the DRB and will allow the co-applicants to continue design development. Subsequent DRB reviews will coincide with the resubmission of the development plan/ zoning application to Fairfax County Department of Planning and Development.

A mix of uses is planned for the future of the property that include office, residential, retail and approximately 400,000 sq. ft. of public use. The 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 DRB and Fairfax County zoning review processes.
