Groups criticize proposed Reston tower, August 30, 2012

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors soon will decide the fate of a proposed 23-story tower in Reston Town Center that many residents fear is too tall and too far from the nearest Metro station to be successful. . .
 . . . Colin Mills, president of the Reston Citizens Association, said he is concerned that the more than 1,100 parking spaces that developers say the mixed-use tower's inhabitants would need would worsen traffic in an area already suffering from congestion.
What's more worrisome for Mills, however, is that the tower would be more than half a mile from Reston Town Center's stop on Metro's under-construction Silver Line, which he said would deter people from riding it.
"You just can't ask people to walk more than a half-mile from the Metro," Mills said. "It's too far."
