RA Headquarters Building Auction: Run, Don't Walk to the Fairfax County Courthouse and Pick Up the Bargain of the Century

foreclosure-auction-sign.jpegRemember that time the building the Reston Association moved its headquarters to was on the verge of foreclosure? Yeah, that was awesome. A Confidential Restonian Operative shared the news that it and a variety of other Reston office buildings are actually being auctioned off today.

A major advertisement in the Washington Post (December 8 F4) on December 8th revealed that the properties below will be auctioned at the County Court House on December 16, 2010. The assessed value of these properties exceeds $100 million.

Properties to be auctioned
12001 Sunrise Valley Drive, Reston(At the intersection of Sunrise Valley Drive and Reston Parkway.)
12006 Sunrise Valley Drive, Reston
10780 ParkRidge Boulevard, Reston (At the intersection of Hunter Mill and Sunrise Valley)
10790 ParkRidge Boulevard, Reston
10803 ParkRidge Boulevard, Reston
10805 ParkRidge Boulevard, Reston
What are you waiting for? Grab your checkbook and run over to the courthouse before the close of business, and maybe you can be the landlord writing nasty letters to the RA warning them to maintain their window treatments!

Update: Hold onto those checkbooks. Turns out the building's owner filed for bankruptcy protection yesterday, according to Business Week, which took time away from counting curse words in Google searches to do some actual reporting. Not sure if that forestalled the auction.

  1. Damn. And I had so wanted to buy the Monkey House as a Winter Solstice present for Da Missus.
