By Keith Loria, Contributing Writer
Renaissance Centro has begun construction on Parc Reston, a planned 360-unit multi-family in Reston, Va., which also features two spectacular penthouse levels that feature sweeping views to Tysons and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
“Parc Reston will offer spacious one- two- and three-bedroom well appointed apartment homes with incomparable amenities,” Douglas Erdman, a partner with Renaissance Centro, told Commercial Property Executive. “Parc Reston is located in a wonderful walkable community with direct access to the popular W&OD Bike Trail. It’s a short walk from Reston Town Center, one of the nation’s most successful shopping, dining and entertainment destinations.”
Renaissance Centro has already developed the nearby Stratford House and Carlton House in the area.
“We developed the first high-rise residential buildings adjacent to Reston Town Center; the Stratford House and Carlton House, both amenity-rich and highly successful,” Erdman said. “The company’s principals also have extensive experience in development of single-family homes and age-restricted multi-family housing. They are combining many of the best features of all these housing types in Parc Reston.”
Amenities will include an outdoor rooftop pool, an indoor lap pool, ultramodern fitness center, an indoor spa, a yoga/Pilates room, a rooftop clubroom, onsite concierge service and an executive business and conference center.
“The homes will feature generous open floor plans,” Erdman said. “Expansive windows, full and French balconies in all units above the third floor, full-size washers and dryers, walk-in closets, oversized bathroom vanities and linen cabinets, gourmet kitchens with granite countertops and ceramic tile accent walls, and more.”
Also close by to Parc Reston are employment centers, a hospital, library, grocery store, child care centers, and the new Silver Line Metro station opening in 2013.
“Reston was founded in the early 1960s by Robert E. Simon, Jr., one of the nation’s first and largest award-winning master-planned communities embodying the founding principles of being a place where residents can live, work and play,” Erdman said. “The community offers miles of trails, as well as multiple lakes, swimming pools, tennis courts, an active community center and more.”
Units are expected to be available for leasing in the summer of 2014.
