  • John Higgins

    I was curious to know what makes proposed the Akridge building “iconic”. The linked piece in the Washington Business Journal didn’t answer my question, but was informative in another way. It says that the building will be within a 10-minute walk of four Metro stations. Remarkable!

    • Mike M

      The standards for truthiness in that industry seem lower than elsewhere. I am not sure why.

      Its iconic because this monstrosity will make a mockery of Old Reston Avenue’s Virginia Byway status
      No need to.mention impact on a already gridlocked corner
      Oh,it must be a monument to Hudgins skills in town planning

    • Walter Hadlock

      The property noted as being within a 10-minute walk of four Metro stations is located elsewhere in the area (see the small note at the bottom of the article). On another note, this building looks to have thousands of square feet of wasted space. Also, One Reston Town Center is at 1760 Reston Parkway–go figure. What a monstrosity. Only time will tell when (if?) it is built.
