Look like the FFX county planning board is about to get ready to approve the new development plans for the Great Falls and Reston Town Center II development. Pesky 7-Eleven at the corner of Walker Rd and 193.

Look like the Safeway will get to stay but the rest will be redeveloped to look like the Reston Town Center. Surprised Amazon didn't wait for this for their new headquarters.

It's still 3 years before the new sewer line down 193 and the widening of the road in 2020.

Great Falls will not have high rises like Reston until Tysons Corner is built out about 50 years from now.

Not so, I know two of the developers. One of the developers is associated with Boston properties. They already have the long terms plans on the books. Even re-routing sewer plans and intersection designs. They were trying to get a light rail system from Reston to the Great Falls Town Center but too costly.

BTW, Tysons Corner is already at capacity.

Sauls Centers did a nice job with their recent Clarendon Center. Two very nice High Rises and mixed use areas. http://www.saulcenters.com/properties-metro/va/clarendon/index.htm

I assume that the reason leases aren't being renewed near 7-Eleven and Walker Rd is the developer is getting ready to re-develop. Once these developers gave the properties not much residents can do. American way.

Nope. There must be hi rises on both sides of Gallows Road & Old Courthouse Road before you can claim Tysons is built out.

Not by the density rules. Plus, Great Falls is way under density for the county averages.

What you mean imagine? Already enough wrecks from all the Reston Town Center traffic going through Great Falls. What a traffic clusterfuck the Reston Town Center has made out of Great Falls.
