Construction on New Office Building in Reston Station Begins

Comstock has begun construction on the next office building in Reston Station, located on the southwest corner of the plaza. The eight-story structure, which has not yet been named, is a Class A office building with 180,000 square feet of office space and 8,300 square feet of retail space on the plaza.

The building is designed by HKS Architects with steel and glass structures. The company’s portfolio includes the design of Urumqi International Airport in Xinjiang, China and the King Hussein Cancer Center in Amman, Jordan.

Office space will be restricted to six floors, which sit atop an eight-story, above-grave concrete parking deck. It will also include a private patio with a sky garden and gym.

Construction prompted Comstock to close four of eight kiosks on the plaza. According to Maggie Parker, vice president of communications and community outreach for Comstock, the kiosks were intentionally designed to be temporary. Some vendors will relocate into vacant kiosks.

“They’ve given many budding entrepreneurs an opportunity to test their business models and have added a lot of vitality to our emerging development,” Comstock wrote in a statement.

    Above-grave parking?

    Do you need an app for that?

      Well, this area is where architectural taste goes to die.

    • Why do you bother?

      Companies will be dying to lease space in the building!

      That and profound navigation skills.

    Commuting is a process whereby one’s soul dies a little bit every day so having a grave directly below where you park just makes sense.

    There is a community tramway scheduled where that angled panel is

  • Thank you

    I would like to see the town center replaced with a sister building of same dominance in exchange for free parking.

    This is a good (if you want to call it that) look at Reston’s future density, especially around the Metro stations and in the Village Centers in the absence of major changes in Reston’s plan. Nothing but concrete and glass–and the plans for the hotel aren’t even included here.

    Disgusting.

    If you don’t want this to happen, do all you can to help the Coalition for a Planned Reston (CPR– https://plannedreston.wordpress.com/ ) re-frame the Reston Master Plan.
