New Owners for Hunters Woods Village Center

South Carolina company now runs Reston property.

Hunters Woods Village Center has been sold to a South Carolina based retail developer.

Edens & Avant, a national retail developer and operator, says it purchased the shopping center   for an undisclosed price, an acquisition that brings to 30 the number of Washington area shopping centers owned by the company.

Hunters Woods, which was more than 120,000 square feet of space, was completely redesigned and rebuilt in the last 1990s. It is anchored by Safeway, and also houses Ledo's restaurant, Dairy Queen and a new laundromat. The shopping center is adjacent to the  Reston Community Center and Hunters Woods Fellowship House.

Plans for any redevelopment or changes are not yet known.

When Hunterswoods was redeveloped I had no idea how it would turn out until it was all done. While it is better, and very much needed redevelopment it's still a bit odd. There was not much community input or did not seem to be when it was redeveloped. It still needs ....something. One odd thing is the Community Center behind a row of stores though it's unlikely Edens & Avant will remove them. Maybe knock a few out and that would allow at least visually connecting it with the parking lot? It was suggested on Restonian that Hunterswoods would make a great site for a farmers market and I agree because it has a great feature that lends itself to farmers markets, the ability to turn into it after you have passed it and plenty of parking. Though Wednesdays Smart Market Farmers Market seems to be happy with it's current location and National Reality seems happy with it there also. It's my home village I wished it had more plaza, a Robert Simon contribution at Lake Ann. I wonder what will move into the former Hollywood Video building?

I agree with Rod's comments and add: Many people don't know the Plaza even exists. This applies to the RCC as well. The large brown sign on Reston Parkway is usually hidden by trees and those looking for the RCC and shopping plaza are often past the sign and unable to read it. Possibly eye level signs in the median strip would be helpful.

Another thought: the Glade Road signs on Reston Parkway are much too small and poorly placed for people driving along in traffic.
