One block away from Reston Town Center, there are plans to build the tallest building in Reston. According to Washington Business Journal, the plans for this 23-story, 330-foot-high office building have changed in a major way. The lobby will now span six stories, and a glass screenwall will be added to the top of the structure for a rooftop terrace. Washington Business Journal further reported that the landscape design on the seventh floor was altered, and a private terrace was added for the 22nd floor. More open space was also increased on the ground-floor.
The structure will be 125 feet taller than any of the neighboring structures in Reston, reported Washington Business Journal. Construction won't begin until 150,000-square-feet of the building is pre-leased. In the development's website, it states that the 400,596-square-foot project will feature 390,050-square-feet of office space, 10,546-square-feet of retail space, and a roughly 7,000-square-foot restaurant. 21 surface parking spaces and 1,160 structured parking spaces will also be provided. The project is intended to be LEED Gold certified. The developers of the project are Akridge and RTC Partnership LLC, which are led by the managing partner of the ownership group Richard Whealen.
This project has been in the works for years now, despite the relatively high office vacancies along the Dulles Toll Road corridor. Currently, the site houses a five-story office building known as the Town Center Office Building that is owned by Whealen.
