This is a promoted post from Knutson at Crescent Place, which is offering new townhomes in Leesburg.

Join the Knutson at Crescent Place sales team and your potential new neighbors Saturday from 1-4 p.m. to celebrate the final phase release of the community.

These final two townhome buildings, featuring the Rockland and Fleetwood floorplans, are situated on and directly behind the community’s courtyard. Those living in the courtyard building will have peace and quiet, while be treated to beautiful brick sidewalks in front of their home with grassy areas in between, featuring park benches and gazebos. No cars will disturb them by driving by the front of their home, so the serenity will never end.

These stunning modern townhomes, located in the heart of Leesburg, have changed the landscape of Loudoun County. The Knutson difference offers you superior finishes and features throughout, distinctive exterior architecture, a large two-car garage, and much more. Floorplans range from 2,000 to 2,800 square feet and include spacious terraces, 9-foot ceilings on all levels, optional two-sided terrace fireplaces, and 2-car garages. Take a closer look at our Fleetwood floorplan in a 3D tour.

Located immediately adjacent to the W&OD Trail, you will be able to enjoy time in nature, while living in an urban area. Access to over 50 shops, restaurants, and more, allows homeowners to live easy and convenient lives, without ever going too far from home. With 98 WalkScore neighborhood ranking, it has never been easier to host a happy hour on your rooftop terrace, listen to live music on a Tuesday night, or become a regular at the hottest new restaurant in town.

With prices starting in the mid-$400s, Knutson at Crescent Place has become one of Loudoun’s fastest selling new developments.

The second annual DC Bike Ride is your chance to pedal down the middle of Pennsylvania Avenue, taking in the iconic sights of Washington, D.C., but without dodging traffic!

As a bonus, this year’s DC Bike Ride offers a fun and exciting Mother’s Day opportunity that the entire family (ages 3+) can enjoy. The 20-mile, car-free ride takes place Sunday, May 14, starting in West Potomac Park and finishing, after traversing closed roads in Washington and Arlington, on Pennsylvania Avenue near the U.S. Capitol.

DC Bike Ride begins at 8 a.m. and music and activities at the Finish Festival wrap up at 1 p.m. Registration is now open at this site. Register by March 26 and use the code RESTONNOW to save $10.

The course, which will have live music and aid stations, is designed for riders of all fitness and experience levels. The ride is mostly flat, very scenic and noncompetitive. If 20 miles sounds like a lot, there is a 6.5-mile turnoff point, but most riders complete the course and start enjoying the Finish Festival in about 90 minutes.

DC Bike Ride was created in 2016 by Arlington-based Capital Sports Ventures as a way to “celebrate life on two wheels,” said Tassika Rodphotong Fulmer, senior director of business operations. “We wanted to do an event locally for the vibrant bike community, to get new folks onto bikes, and to provide a unique perspective in our nation’s capital.”

Tassika said last year’s inaugural DC Bike Ride raised $38,750 for the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, to help support street safety initiatives in the region as part of  Washington’s Vision Zero effort, which works to reduce traffic fatalities to zero by 2024.

New this year is an opportunity to sponsor riders from underserved communities. You can chip in $1, $5, $10 or $48 and sponsor the registration fees for selected participants from organizations like Gearin’ Up Bicycles whose purpose is to create career development opportunities and teach essential workplace skills to teenagers from underserved communities.

Children must be 3 years old or older and those under 7 participate for free but must ride in tandem or pulled in a trailer by an adult. Bike, tandem and trailer rentals from our partner Bike and Roll DC are available at DCBikeRide.com.

This is a promoted post from Ryan Homes — Westmoore, Loudoun County’s new Metro community in the heart of Ashburn.

It’s no secret. Westmoore is Loudoun County’s hottest selling townhome community. And for good reason, too. Coming on the scene a year ago, Westmoore made a bold statement. And the buzz was all around. Westmoore would become Ashburn’s only Metro community with direct city connections via the highly anticipated Silver Line Metro. And the sales are record breaking, with 169 homes sold in less than a year and our newest Phase Two already 30 percent sold out. But that’s not where the differences stop.

Proximity to city lines usually dictate the value of a home. And we’ve certainly seen our share of overpriced residences near the Metro. Homes in Arlington and Reston can easily reach or exceed the million-dollar mark. But the builders at Westmoore are changing the game. NVHomes and Ryan Homes are offering affordable townhomes in Ashburn all the while keeping you close to urban life. And keeping you connected to the best in retail, dining and entertainment, just minutes from the Grammercy District, Loudon Station and Moorefield Town Center. Plus, Reston Town Center is just a short drive or a few metro stops away from home.

The townhomes themselves are designed for a more urban vibe. Open sightlines, lots of natural light and sleek finishes create a completely modern look, often times not seen in the suburbs. Westmoore also is changing the way residents kick back and relax. By connecting indoors and out with the use of rooftop terraces and covered porches. Thoroughly metro and modern, it’s the perfect melding of form and function in an effort to bring out the best of both.

At Westmoore, amenities are rich. See for yourself the many reasons to keep residents entertained right at home:

  • Modern, resort-style clubhouse (opening Summer 2017).
  • Outdoor pool with a beach entry and poolside cabanas.
  • Expansive pool deck with lake views.
  • Club lounge and café.
  • Fitness center and yoga studio.
  • Urban fenced dog park.
  • Amphitheater for outdoor movies and concert series
  • Natural playgrounds.
  • Miles of trails.
  • Urban inspired parks and playgrounds.

New Urbanism has arrived here in Ashburn. A revival of a connected life, outside the city where walkability and energy are its lifeblood. With Phase One sold out and Phase Two over 30 percent sold in just one year, there is no time like right now to make life simplified. Where just by moving in, life becomes easier and more refreshed.

Westmoore is at 43393 Ghazwa Square, Ashburn, VA 20148. The sales office is open Mondays from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays – Fridays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Call 571-707-5090.

The following was written and sponsored by Boston Properties.

Dear Reston:

We are truly grateful to all the Reston Town Center (RTC) residents, visitors, retailers and businesses who have placed their trust and confidence in this wonderful property for several decades. We have shared many special moments with this community and very much want that tradition to continue to grow for generations to come.

After years of research and planning, RTC activated paid parking in January with three primary goals:

  1. Protecting the parking rights of RTC tenants and visitors who patronize the Center.
  2. Enhancing the parking experience of those tenants, visitors and patrons.
  3. Augmenting the Boston Properties revenue dedicated to reinvestment in the Reston community through improved facilities for the general public, family-oriented events, best-in-class retail, innovative technologies and nonprofit donations.

As with the progression from surface parking to garage parking some years ago, we realize moving from a free to paid parking model is a big change and has caused some confusion and dissatisfaction; however, our overriding, long-term goal is to continue to bring you the amenities you expect from a world-class destination. It is in this spirit we are writing this letter to share our perspective, correct misinformation and encourage productive feedback and dialogue. We offer the following thoughts based on today’s most prevalent concerns:

Reston Town Center logoPaid parking will help manage unwarranted commuter parking. Over the course of the last three years, tens of thousands of people used RTC garages for short- and long-term commuter parking, including overnight and out-of-town stays, creating a shortage of spaces that led to frustration for tenants and visitors coming to Reston Town Center. Further, there were numerous instances of residential owners leaving their vehicles in RTC spaces. Since converting to paid parking, we are already seeing significant improvement, allowing for more RTC visitors to conveniently utilize the garages.

We are committed to assisting retailers during this transition. We are in regular communications with our retailers, and welcome open and honest dialogue in order to address the concerns that are most important to that tenant’s ongoing business operations.

Paid parking is not having the adverse impact that has been reported. When analyzing parking occupancy levels in our garages, we found January’s occupancy to be virtually identical to last November’s occupancy. Interestingly, on average, visitors have been staying longer since paid parking was activated, allowing for more time to enjoy RTC retail and amenities.

Additionally, based on the January 2016 versus January 2017 sales revenue data we have received, while sales have decreased for a few businesses, the majority of our tenants’ sales are either flat or have actually increased. It is important to emphasize this is a 30-day snapshot and not necessarily indicative of a longer-term trend. We will continue to closely analyze all revenue activity, as growth is in everyone’s best interest.

Boston Properties logoEach retailer chooses whether and where to validate parking. Each retailer and restaurateur makes its own business decisions about 1) participating in a validation program and 2) what validation terms to incorporate within their unique business model, to include validating for all or select garages.

No retailers have closed as a result of paid parking. Not a single retailer has vacated due to paid parking. In fact, numerous tenants are renewing their leases. Over the last year, 15 retailers renewed leases and four new retail leases are in progress.

We have already made a number of changes based on customer feedback, including:

  • Offering free parking in garages on weekends, holidays and special event days
  • Doubling the number of parking ambassadors, primarily at night to assist retail shoppers
  • Installing additional onsite educational signage
  • Adding a list of validating retailers to the ParkRTC app
  • Regularly updating FAQs on the RTC website

In March, we will be installing an upgraded credit card pay station with a larger screen that provides better functionality in extreme weather.

This is a promoted post by Bright Horizons Family Solutions, which has a child care facility in Reston.

The start of a new year is a great time to take stock and make healthy changes for yourself and your family. As we know, children often times shy away from the raw veggie tray and the fruit salad bowl, preferring a grab-and-go bag of chips or high-sugar cereal instead. But healthy eating isn’t all about broccoli and peas. It’s about habits and routines.

Here are a few ways to help your child get a healthy start on eating habits:

  • Remember that eating habits are established early and often are resistant to change.
    This is an important area of your child’s development, and you should not hesitate to speak with your pediatrician if you have questions or concerns about health, growth, or weight.
  • Make dinnertime together a priority (no matter how difficult).
    The family dinner is an endangered institution, but it is a hugely valuable routine that is critical in establishing lifelong patterns and creating a connection to family memories. This can be a time for interesting discussions that also build language skills. Posing a daily question, such as, “The best thing about my day so far…” can become a family ritual to which everyone looks forward.
  • Involve your children in the meal preparations.
    Children often love to help by washing veggies, peeling carrots, breaking lettuce, or helping to set the table.
  • At mealtime, have age-appropriate table expectations.
    Allow children to serve themselves when possible. Encourage small portions, but let them know that they can have second helpings. Model serving portions that aren’t too hefty. Resist the temptation to push the “clean plate club” as this can result in patterns of overeating. Allow children to stop eating when they are no longer hungry.
