Reston Gateway, a major mixed-use project slated to house two key corporate headquarters and other features, has reached a development milestone.

Clark Construction Group, a Maryland-based company,  said it’s completed the core construction of two office buildings, and the business is now, with other contractors, fitting out tenant spaces — with the first one slated to be ready for use in November.

Volkswagen’s North American headquarters and Fannie Mae are moving operations to the commercial space of the development, dubbed Reston Gateway. Developer Boston Properties has also looked to build a 570-room hotel there along with residential towers that could be as high as 36 and 12 stories.

“Clark really set a high bar with their delivery of this cornerstone project in our next phase of Reston Town Center,” Mike Holland, vice president of construction at Boston Properties, said in a statement. “Not only did they deliver the project on time, but they did it despite the unprecedented challenges COVID presented.”

Construction began in 2018 and took just under three years.

Per a news release:

2000 Opportunity Way is a 28-story, 800,000 square foot office building, including 8,000 square feet of retail space and a six-level parking structure. 1950 Opportunity Way is a 20-story, 623,000 square foot office building with 8,000 square feet of retail space and a six-level parking structure. The two office towers are structurally adjoined at levels 7 and 8 by a 20-foot-high connector floor. The project also includes a 7,000 square foot fitness center, a roof deck, and multiple private roof terraces.

The project also calls for six acres of public open space, featuring a public plaza as well as multiple outdoor amenity and green spaces.

The development is by the forthcoming Reston Town Center Metro station, which would extend service westward but has undergone numerous delays.

An opening date of April or May 2022 for the Metro line extension would be years after it was supposed to have been completed.
