Why are European's so fit? In part, because they walk everywhere. Reston in general was model off of that European idea, and is a pedestrian-friendly place. The West Market community in North Reston is the perfect example with grocery stores, restaurants, a movie theater, and anything else you could need just steps from the front door (even Target is walking distance).
West Market comprises two condo communities: Madison Park Condominiums and Lincoln Park Condominiums. Madison Park has 122 condominium units (24 of which are townhouses) within seven buildings. The Lincoln Park community has 104 luxury, 2-story townhome-style condos.
Five different builders came together to create this architecturally diverse community. Most people first notice the rounded exteriors that are unlike anything else in Reston. Spacious common areas include a club house, which includes a main hall and kitchen for meetings and gatherings, a fitness center and sauna, and an outdoor pool.
This neighborhood was built in the late 1990's just a few steps from Reston Town Center. That means dozens of restaurants, shops, and entertainment are next door. In addition, Trader Joe's and Harris Teeter are close by, and the W&OD trail and YMCA are practically in the backyard. You don't need a car to live here, but if you do have one it is a quick hop onto Fairfax County Parkway and the Dulles Toll Road.
West Market is a great choice for anyone wanting to live in the Reston Town Center area without actually being in Town Center.
