Reston is getting another mixed-use development, and on Tuesday the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors agreed to expedite the process for the contractor.
The new development has been in the works for about two years and construction only recently started. On Tuesday, the board agreed to speed up the process for proposed changes to the placement of 80,000 square feet of streets.
“That’s a norm that we do at the board if you need a little bit more time on something,” said Supervisor Cathy Hudgins of the Hunter Mill District. “As long as it doesn’t hack our initial zoning it’s appropriate to do.”
The new neighborhood will be next to the Reston Town Center Metro station and several office buildings.
“They can live here, they can work there, and all of that is going to respond to what their needs are going to be,” said Hudgins.
The development, which will include a Wegmans grocery store, is expected to open in about two years.
