The Reston Association Planning and Zoning Commission will hear from the developers of Reston Spectrum Monday about its latest plan to turn the 23-acre shopping center into a mixed-use, transit-oriented development with hundreds of residences and hotel rooms.
Reston Spectrum, owned by Lerner Enterprises, secured county approval of a finalized conceptual site plan in 2008 using extra density from the neighboring Reston Regional Library, which was deemed a park in 1992, allowing it to transfer density to nearby developers.
The project is divided into three Land Bays (A through C). Land Bay A (north of New Dominion Parkway, south of Bowman Towne Drive, west of Reston Parkway and east of Fountain Drive) is planned for up to 546 dwelling units, 255 hotel rooms, 172,000 square feet of office space and 62,500 square feet of retail uses within buildings of up to 180 feet.
Land Bays B and C are bounded by Baron Cameron Avenue to the north, Bowman Towne Drive to the south, Reston Parkway to the east and Fountain Drive to the west.
Land Bay B is planned for up to 643 dwelling units, 270 hotel rooms and 48,650 square feet of retail uses.
Land Bay C is planned for up to 237 residential uses and 134,896 square feet for retail and bank uses.
Approximately 84,000 square feet of this retail space houses
Building heights of up to 120 feet are proposed in Land Bays B and C.
Fairfax County Planning Commission is scheduled to review the plans at a public hearing on Sept. 29.
