On the Docket: SVES, Office Tower, Reston Patch, June 28, 2012

Sunrise Valley renovations and 23-story office building slated for decision at Fairfax County Planning Commission on Thursday.
The Fairfax County Planning Commission is scheduled to make a decision on two Reston projects at Thursday's regular meeting.
The 23-story tower planned for 1760 Reston Parkway is on the docket. Read more about the project here.
The RTC Partnership is seeking to demolish the existing five-story "Reston Times" office building and construct a 23-story, 418,900 square foot mixed-use office building, to include office (413,700 SF), retail uses (2,600 SF) and/or an eating establishment (2,600 SF). . . .
Although RA's DRB and the Reston P&Z Committee have endorsed the huge tower to be built where the old Reston Times or Town Center Office Building is, the Reston Task Force's Town Center Sub-committee chair, the Association of Reston Clusters & Homeowners, and RCA's Reston 2020 Committee have all objected to the proposal on grounds that it is inconsistent with Reston's planning principles, undermines the residential-focused mixed use proposed for the North Town Center area around the Spectrum Center, and is massively too dense for the setting.
