Brief: Reston Station Wins Top Planning Award

Davis Carter Scott was awarded the first NAIOP Northern Virginia Master Planning Award of Excellence for Reston Station. The project was developed by Comstock Partners through a Public/Private Partnership with Fairfax County. Reston Station is a first-class transit-oriented development, honoring the amenity-rich, pedestrian-friendly environment that Reston Town Center was founded upon. The project features a seven-level transit center which serves as a pedestal for the mixed-use program above, allowing buses and cars easy access to bring commuters to Reston Station's Metro Station while creating a walkable, amenity-rich environment in the civic plaza above.

Reston Station has set a new paradigm for transit-oriented development in the Metropolitan Washington Region and beyond. Much like the transformative nature Reston Town Center had on the idea of what a planned community could be, Reston Station changes the perception of how Public/Private entities can work together to achieve a balanced mix of uses in a dense urban environment. Sustainability serves as the foundation for the planning effort and the prominent location calls for the best in architectural design and construction materials given its high visibility from major roadways including the Dulles Toll Road, Wiehle Avenue and Sunset Hills Road.

Reston Station is being delivered on a fast track schedule and is slated for completion on the Metro station's grand opening late 2013.
