Construction Tour – The Signature at Reston Town Center
December 2

At 11811 Freedom Drive, Reston, VA (Reston Town Center).

Signature at Reston Town Center, designed by Shalom Baranes Associates (SBA), is part of the final block of Reston Town Center to be developed, completing the original plan. SBA is providing full architectural design services for the 1,277,000sf mixed-use 500+ unit residential building and a future adjacent office building. The 21-story development will act as a gateway between the broader Reston development to the north and east and Reston Town Center.

Composed of an elegant mix of high- and low-rise structures that respond to the surrounding scale, it will be anchored by an engaging streetscape with ground-level retail, open-air social spaces, and gardens. These features will expand on the established landscaping and outdoor amenities of the town center and activate the park along Reston Parkway. The project is targeting LEED® Silver Certification.

This construction tour is organized by the Young Architect’s Forum and led by Gina Volpicelli, AIA, LEED AP BD+C.
