Herndon Metrorail Station Area Plan
Herndon, VA

The Dulles Metrorail extension project will sustain and promote economic vitality along the Dulles corridor. The extension of the Metrorail Silver Line from West Falls Church through Tysons Corner, Reston and Herndon to Dulles Airport will significantly impact the commercial landscape within the Town of Herndon, providing the Town’s residents, visitors, and employees with excellent regional access and a wealth of economic opportunities. The project will also afford quality of life improvements such as increased public transit access, decreased traffic congestion, and positive environmental changes.

The Town of Herndon recognizes these opportunities and has embarked on a planning initiative that will guide future redevelopment and identify new prospects for economic growth on land surrounding the new Metrorail station. By 2027, the Town Council envisions that Herndon’s residents and businesses will be "connected to the rest of the world by transit-oriented development.” To help reach this goal, the Town selected VHB to provide a wide-range of planning and design services in support of the new station area plan. VHB’s tasks are organized around four key objectives:

  • Establishing an open and inclusive planning process
  • Developing a comprehensive understanding of the site and surrounding area
  • Creating a planning and design framework that evaluates the benefits and risks associated with various development scenarios
  • Creating an implementation strategy built around a realistic understanding of site development, market, financial and funding opportunities
