RESTON | 1760 Reston Parkway | 100m | 330ft | 22 fl | Pro

A new tallest tower has been announced for Reston Virginia, a Washington DC suburb.


Akridge and RTC Partnership Announce Plan for Iconic New Office Tower at Reston Town Center

WASHINGTON, Feb. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Akridge and RTC Partnership announced a joint venture to develop 1760 Reston Parkway, a $210 million, trophy-class, office tower in the heart of Reston Town Center. The approximately 420,000 square foot building will climb 330 feet, nearly 115 feet higher than the next tallest building in Reston Town Center. This will afford 1760 Reston Parkway unparalleled, panoramic views extending from the Blue Ridge Mountains to downtown Washington, DC.

RTC Partnership's Rick Whealen originally acquired the property in 2005 and guided 1760 Reston Parkway through the entitlement process. He retained Mike Shuler of Avison Young to structure a joint venture with a top office developer, leading to the joint venture with Akridge, a full-service commercial real estate company that has been investing in the DC area for over 40 years.

Designed by Thomas Dinneny of Polleo Group in Reston Virginia, 1760 Reston Parkway will redefine Reston's landscape. The office tower will include state-of-the-art building systems, feature a large rooftop plaza, and target LEED Gold certification. Its breathtaking panoramic views will be the landmark structure's most notable feature and will be further enhanced by the floor-to-ceiling vision glass and 9.5 foot ceiling heights.

The building will offer an easily accessible location with the abundant amenities of Reston Town Center, the most desirable office submarket in Northern Virginia. 1760 Reston Parkway will be just 10 minutes east of the Washington Dulles International Airport and about 30 minutes west of Washington DC. Unique to Reston Town Center, 1760 Reston Parkway will have dedicated parking, with a parking ratio of three spaces per every 1,000 SF. Reston Town Center offers a unique outdoor venue with more than 60 retail shops, 30 restaurants, a multi-screen movie cinema, and the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

New name: One Reston Town Center. It's also 23 floors now; I'll see if I can get the thread updated.

Reston's future tallest tower has a new name: One Reston Town Center

The 23-story building will be dubbed “One Reston Town Center.” Even though its location at 1760 Reston Parkway puts Akridge’s project slightly outside of what a shopper would consider Reston Town Center, it still falls within what planners have zoned for Reston’s urban core (and therefore technically part of RTC).
If I don't credit a photo, I took it.

Definitely a tall building for the area, but not iconic by any definition of the word. The descriptors that developers use to market their buildings are very obnoxious sometimes.
