Harrison Wins Awards — The Harrison at Reston Town Center has been honored with two top industry awards. The 28,000-square-foot common area earned a Multifamily Pillars of the Industry Award in the interior merchandising category for designers Carlyn and Company. The Harrison’s architecture by Lessard Design, Inc. was also honored by the Great American Living Awards (GALA) program for best multifamily design and architecture. The GALA award cited the project’s open floor plans with views of the Reston skyline.

    “Harrison Wins Awards” – How precious. A committee of developers, bought and paid for by developers giving other developers awards. Why am I not more excited?

    Can you say “Propaganda”?

      I am starting to believe that living in a shipping container is not such a bad idea. Some of these dwellingsites look better than the neo classical arch in this area and offer far more flexibility.

      Local real estate and developer clowns should by law required to live at least five years in their own designs to prove that what they produced is worth living for.

      Direct hit!

      The only thing worse is when they give “awards” to the local politicians.
