Comstock Selects Davis to Build Metro Parking Facility
Located on the Dulles Toll Road at the Wiehle Avenue exit in Reston, Virginia, the Reston Station Metro Facility is being built as part of a public-private partnership between Comstock and Fairfax County and will form the foundation for Reston's first transit oriented development, a 1.3 million square pedestrian friendly mixed-use development to be built above the Reston Station Metro Facility.
Ground breaking is scheduled for spring of 2011. Completion of the Reston Station Metro Facility is scheduled to coincide with the completion of the Metro rail station in late 2013.
The Reston Station Metro Facility is the only dedicated commuter parking facility currently planned for the first phase of the Silver Line extension to Dulles Airport and will replace the existing 800 space commuter parking lot currently located on a portion of the Reston Station property.
The Reston Station Metro Facility will be constructed substantially underground and will include a commuter park and ride facility, a transit bus depot, 2,300 commuter parking spaces, and several hundred parking spaces for the retail portion of the mixed-use development to be constructed above the Reston Station Metro Facility.
The mixed-use development planned by Comstock will include office, retail, residential and hotel uses in multiple buildings surrounding a public plaza which will be connected to the Metro rail station currently under construction in the median of the Dulles Toll Road.
The public-private partnership between Comstock and Fairfax County provides for all costs associated with the private development portions of the Reston Station Metro Facility and certain public improvements to be paid by Comstock.
Costs to be covered by Fairfax County are limited to costs associated with the commuter transit facility portion of the Reston Station Metro Facility and certain other public improvements, expected to be approximately $87m.
Will the move enhance market share of the firms?
