Google In Talks To Take Space At Comstock's Reston Station

The Reston Station office building at 1900 Reston Metro Plaza

Reston appears to be a beneficiary of Google's planned $13B nationwide real estate expansion. 

Google is in talks to lease 90K SF at Comstock Holding Cos.' Reston Station development, the Washington Business Journal reports, citing two unnamed sources. 

The tech giant would move into 1900 Reston Metro Plaza, the 360K SF spec office building Comstock developed next to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station. The developer signed coworking provider Spaces for 40K SF as its first office tenant in January 2018.

The Reston Station development has two additional office buildings planned, one of which Comstock broke ground on speculatively last year. It also features the 448-unit BLVD apartments, plus retailers such as Founding Farmers, Starbucks and Sweet Leaf Café. 

Google currently occupies 45K SF at Reston Town Center. Its lease at the Boston Properties development expires in 2025 but includes an early termination option for 2020.

Last week, Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced a $13B plan to increase and improve its real estate holdings around the U.S. His announcement specifically detailed growth plans for Virginia, where he said it plans to double its workforce. Google has also been expanding its data center presence in Loudoun County, buying 148 acres of land in Ashburn and Leesburg in 2017.
