Marriott International Plans $250M Hotel in Reston Station Near Washington, D.C.
RESTON, Va. — Marriott International (NASDAQ: MAR) has unveiled plans for a $250 million luxury JW Marriott hotel in Reston, located between Washington, D.C. and Dulles International Airport. The building will rise 26 stories, featuring 250 guestrooms, 90 for-sale residential units, 15,000 square feet of meeting space, two restaurants, an executive lounge, swimming pool and fitness center.
Marriott reached a franchise agreement with Comstock Holdings Cos. (NASDAQ: CHCI) to make the hotel the centerpiece for the next phase of Comstock’s Reston Station development. The hotel will anchor the Reston Row District, the newest section of the 60-acre, mixed-use, transit-oriented project.
Reston Row District is located adjacent to Reston’s first Silver Line station, offering public transportation to D.C. via the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority. When completed, Reston Row District will feature two office towers totaling approximately 500,000 square feet; a 350-unit multifamily building; 65,000 square feet of retail, service and fitness spaces; and a 2,500-space underground parking garage, all surrounding a 1.2-acre central park.
The for-sale JW Marriott Residences Reston units will be served by a separate residential lobby entrance and located on the upper floors of the tower. This portion of the building will offer separate spaces and amenities such as an owner’s lounge, fitness center, outdoor area and dog park.
Utility relocations and coordinated demolition of the existing 1970s-era office park complex recently commenced and site development will begin in the coming weeks, according to Comstock. The hotel tower is scheduled to open in 2024.
Crescent Hotels & Resorts Management Co. will operate the hotel. Nunzio Marc DeSantis Architects will serve as the designer for the project.
