The Herndon Town Council unanimously voted 7-0 to move forward with a comprehensive agreement with real estate firm Comstock Partners to redevelop downtown Herndon. The vote was conducted following a public hearing in front of a full crowd at the town’s council chambers on Tuesday, Oct. 24, and was met with a loud round of applause.

The work to be done will build 281 residential apartments, 17,600 square feet of retail space, an 18,000-square-foot arts center and a 761-space parking garage

Comstock will now begin designing the project and will submit a site plan for both the Herndon Heritage Preservation Review Board and town council to review and approve. Comstock anticipates this will take about one year, setting them to begin construction early in 2019, with completion estimated in 2021.

This is the soonest the project could be completed because potential delays could occur. For example, there is a provision in the agreement for a “market pause” for up to two years if “the market isn’t stable enough for this project to succeed,” Bill Ashton, Herndon’s town manager, said during the meeting.
