Reston Town Center combines elements of the ideal European downtown: the vitality of an Italian piazza with the diversity of a French boulevard. Easily accessible stores make shopping a year-round pleasure. Famous names and specialty shops line the brick streets. The centerpiece of this project is beautiful Fountain Square, an open civic plaza with Mercury Fountain at its center. Lush plants, low seating and broad steps make the area inviting to pedestrians. Beyond the fountain, a variety of different artworks and an open-air pavilion complete this lovely area.
TEG provided master planning, market analysis and merchandising strategies for this second phase, as well as streetscape and storefront design guidelines. Today, Reston II is a busy commercial center that makes Reston Town Center the focal point of the community and Northern Virginia’s “downtown.”
