A Reston developer has refiled plans for rezoning property next to Metro's Wiehle Station in the hopes of constructing a mid-rise, mixed-use building.
Charles Veatch, one of the original developers of Reston, envisions 421 rental residential units and up to 10,000 square feet of retail space on 3.8 acres at 11401 thru 11411 Sunset Hills Rd., directly adjacent to Reston Station.
Reston Station is currently being developed by Comstock. Reston Station will be a 1.2 million square foot mixed-use development that will be atop the seven-level underground parking garage at Wiehle.
Veatch says the original plan for the parcels — which he is seeking to rezone from industrial to to Planned Mixed-Use Residential (PRM) — was filed more than two years ago and featured an office building.
"That plan was filed before Comstock had the access and road structure figured out," said Veatch. "That is now resolved."
The land currently is home to Veatch is teaming with Bozzuto Development on the project. Another company, Section 913, has put plans for an adjacent office building on hold but intends to develop it in the future, according to county documents.
The area bordering the Dulles Toll Road wass, which were vacated in January 2011.
Next step: Fairfax County Planning and Zoning will examine the plans and issue a staff report with its comments.
