This is what it looks like when an earth-toned dream dies.
A Confidential Restonian Operative sent us these exciting photos of demolition work at Parc Reston, where three of the midrise condo/apartment buildings are getting torn down to make way for two 14-story residential towers. (The remaining buildings will stand, although we think the ones in the picture above are next for the wood chipper, warily eying their ultimate fate with the blank, soulless eyes of the vacated rental unit.
Will the tree be saved? We just don't know.
With approved redevelopment projects across the street at the Reston Times building and just down North Shore at Fairway Apartments, it's going to be a busy couple of years for demolitioners, or whatever you call people with the awesome job of bustin' stuff up real good, in our neighborhood. They might want to consider getting a Frequent Eater card at the Macaroni Grill across the street, at least until the Spectrum Center, too, falls under the wrecking ball at some point in the future, the end.
