Google signed a 164,000-square-foot lease to anchor Comstock Development Services, L.C.’s signature office building at Reston Station in Reston, Virginia.
The global technology giant plans to take occupancy of 90,000 square feet to start, with the balance over the next two years. Google will occupy the top floors of the trophy 16-story building that features a concrete exoskeleton over a glass curtain wall. The tower has become an icon in the Dulles Corridor, rising above the Dulles Toll Road and Metro’s Silver Line Wiehle-Reston East station.
Google’s Liz Schwab says, “Google first opened a small office in Reston back in 2005 and we’ve since grown close to 200 employees, working on major projects across engineering, sales and more. We’re confident that Reston Station will be a great new home for us, and will provide room for future growth.”
The company will start moving its current employee base into Reston Station later this summer. Roughly 500 employees will eventually be housed in the new space.
