Click HERE to register.

Reston Next is a new, 2.5 million square foot, development located in Reston Virginia, situated in the Reston Town Center, adjacent to the future WMATA Silver line Reston station. The project consists of a 5 story below-grade shared parking garage, a 20-story office tower, a 28-story office tower, and a 13-story hotel (hotel construction anticipated to start in 2022). The two office towers are connected by a long-span king-post-truss connector structure at Levels 7 and 8. The ground floor plaza includes active retail space and a quarter acre of public plaza and green space. The structure is primarily constructed with cast-in-place concrete with 2-way mild steel slabs below grade and post-tensioned concrete slabs above grade. Steel construction was utilized over the 80' clear span loading dock and the 100' connector structure between the two towers. Thornton Tomasetti provided structural engineering for the project, working in collaboration with the Owner: Boston Properties; Architects: Duda | Paine Architects and Cooper Carry; and Contractor: Clark Construction.
