Lake Anne Development Partners will host an Open House Monday, Feb. 3 to help the public to learn more about redevelopment plans for the plaza and the surrounding areas. 

In 2009, Fairfax County passed a Comprehensive Plan Amendment "designed to foster redevelopment of the [Lake Anne Village Center] in a well-designed, integrated, and efficient manner that is supportive of the unique character of the historically significant Washington Plaza."

Since then, an interim agreement has been reached regarding the Crescent Apartments, and a controversial land swap was approved by the Reston Association Board of Directors. 

The redevelopment of Lake Anne has several objectives:

  • Serve as a catalyst for revitalization
  • Embrace the objectives of the Comprehensive Plan for a vibrant, mixed-use community
  • Create a high-quality development that complements the existing Lake Anne community
  • Ensure diverse housing options, including senior, workforce and affordable housing
  • Enhance pedestrian and bicycle connections throughout the area
Lake Anne Development Partners now has a website and Facebook page, where members of the public can see the latest development and sign up to receive news and other information. 

The open house will take place Monday, Feb. 3 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Reston Community Center, 1609-A Washington Plaza in Lake Anne.

As John Lovaas already pointed out there is no revitalization of Lake Anne unless homeowners get an air conditioning and heating system that allows for temperature controls; also a modern system that would reduce the potential for moisture and dangerous moulds. So unless you have that addressed no revitalization of Lake Anne. Who wants to buy an apartment that has no temperature controls? Its also ridiculous how high the maintenance fees are and so just based on that RELAC should be on the way out. How anyone from RA can promote this idea of holding residents hostage to RELAC by not allowing them to convert seems even more crazy. Maybe we need an independent commitee to review this. Ultimately all of Reston will carry the costs of this boiler boondoggle. $1 worth
