'Reston Station' Groundbreaking Slated, Breathtaking Marketing Slogan Unveiled

Metro Silver Line Groundbreaking Event.jpeg
The groundbreaking for the awesome Reston Station garage and, eventually, windswept canyon mixed-use development at the future Wiehle Avenue Metro station is slated for 10 a.m. on April 5. We're pretty sure we have a previous engagement at that time, but that won't stop us from enjoying the new graphic treatment and slogan for the project. "Metro + Metropolitan" appears to be the tagline, which makes sense, as nothing is more cosmopolitan and sophisticated than a giant 1 million square foot parking garage, which is likely to be the only thing standing when the first Metro train arrives at the WAMTA-approved shrine to rad '80s art.

Here's the official press release, in case you're interested:
Fairfax County and Comstock Partners will break ground on a 1M SF subterranean Metro garage and bus facility and 1.3 M SF mixed use transit oriented development on Tuesday, April 5, 2011, at 10 a.m. The project is the ONLY integrated parking facility on the Phase 1 extension of Metro’s Silver Line, Rail to Dulles.
When we think "metropolitan," we think "integrated parking facility." That, and "Cheesecake Factory," but maybe that's just us.

  1. I would expect one of those old fashion dead tree new sources to not link to a press release. But for a filthy web log to omit such details? Insane!
