Reston TOD Traffic & Profit Comparisons between DPZ & Reston 2020 Plans, Fred Costello, July 18, 2011

Reston Task Force member Fred Costello has analyzed the traffic and profitability impacts of the County's and Reston 2020's TOD development proposals as reflected in RCA Reston 2020's "Reston TOD Planning:  More Balance, Less Density Needed."   He concludes:
  • Reston 2020's proposal for a strong emphasis on residential development in Reston's TOD areas offers nearly the same economic return as the County's non-residential centric proposal does--14% vs. 16%.
  • Reston 2020's proposal results in one-eighth the additional traffic that the County proposal would create if implemented--1.11 more than current traffic under the Reston 2020 proposal and 1.80 more traffic under the county's proposal.
