Please to be enjoying these exciting architectural drawrings of various parallelogram-shaped buildings. You're not looking at plans for some futuristic postmodern development on a German airport service road, but rather our very own futuristic postmodern development on our very own airport service road: Reston Station, which is now our Facebook BFF.
These fancy Facebook pictures represent three of the buildings that will make up the 550,000 square feet of office space at the Metro development. Here they are again, from a different angle, and also as they will appear in the upcoming CGI movie: Tron: Design Review Board Investigators:
We'll give Comstock credit: When they promised "world class architecture," at least they don't appear to be delivering your typical blocky DC suburban midrise office shlock. But for those who prefer their buildings to join together at right angles, please to be enjoying this drawring of the planned residential complex at Reston Station:
Of course, this is what Reston Station looks like now:
"The hole gets bigger and bigger." "Rough terrain." You'd almost think they were alluding to the ongoing hilarity involving extending the Metro line being built right behind this giant dirt pit. But no worries! The Reston Association has decided to send a letter to the airport authority, urging it to finish building Phase 2 of the Silver Line, so all the recent unpleasantness is as good as solved. (The full text is here.)
So yay, pointy buildings and piles of dirt (viewable in real time via this fancy webcam). The only thing that gives us pause?
Brambleton likes this? What, are they going to clad the pedestrian walkway to the Metro station in vinyl siding or something?
