Maggie Parker, spokeswoman for Comstock, the company that is building the parking garage (along with Fairfax County) and the adjacent Reston Station development, says the lot's proximity to the W & OD Trail, along with the safety issues of pedestrians crossing Sunset Hills to get the the Metro, makes a park there an attractive idea. Comstock and Hunter Mill Supervisor Cathy Hudgins have approached the Virginia Department of Transportation about the idea, but no agreement has been reached.
What do you think? Could Reston use some more green space as more high-rises go up near the Metro? Or do you say "the more parking, the better"? Let us know in the comments.
