Embedded below are the ideas of Dave Edwards, long-time Reston resident and urban planner, on developing the area in the Reston Center for Industry and Government (RCIG), roughly the Dulles Corridor between Sunrise Valley and Sunset Hills, plus Reston Town Center (RTC).
A key principle he introduces is a more nuanced version of the "tapering off" of density described in Fairfax County's TOD policy. In particular, he allocates density and height limits at 700 foot intervals from the center point of each TOD site--the Metrorail platform.
Dave shared these ideas with the Reston task force.
