    Supervisors leaning strongly toward Comstock, Nexus for Metro garages

    Two companies are out front in the competition to build parking garages at the two forthcoming Metro Silver Line stations in Loudoun, but the deal isn't done, according to Board of Supervisors Vice Chairman Shawn Williams (R-Broad Run).

    On Wednesday, supervisors voted unanimously to direct the county's purchasing agent to “enter into negotiations for an agreement with Comstock Parkners for the design, construction and operation of a parking garage on Comstock-owned land for the Route 772 North Station.” Additionally, the motion directed staff to enter into negotiations for an agreement with "Nexus Properties for the design, construction and operation of a parking garage at the 100 percent preliminary engineering site for the Route 772 South Station and the 100 percent preliminary engineering site for the Route 606 Station.”

    The supervisors took the vote after a closed-door session, and the item wasn't slated for action on the meeting's agenda.

    Williams said the board decided to take the vote following consultation from staff on the proposals in the closed executive session. The action will help to move along the process with two companies, both of which appear to be the best position to construct the garages, Williams said.

    The vice chairman stressed after the meeting the county will continue to consider other bidders applying for build the garages.

    Comstock is developing the Loudoun Station mixed-use development at the Route 772 Station, located at at Route 772 and Dulles Greenway, the terminus for the second phase of the Silver Line project.

    Nexus Properties is a commercial and residential property building company based in New Jersey with extensive experience in the parking garage sector.
