Reston Station at Wiehle Avenue is the terminus of the Phase 1 Metrorail extension project and a station located along the growing Dulles Toll Road Corridor in Reston, VA. This is the gateway station to Reston and the first station after passing through Arlington and Tysons Corner. Reston Station provides a tremendous opportunity for smart Transit Oriented Development (TOD) at the hub of a transportation center within Reston.
The TOD master development plan consists of approximately 700,000 square feet of office, 50,000 square feet of retail, a 200-room hotel, and approximately 700 residential dwelling units. This project is also spurring other adjacent development with the goal of creating a consolidated mixed use transit development at the gateway to Reston.
In order to create a thriving and functioning project, Gorove/Slade Associates and the development team carefully planned a balance between a transportation terminal and a development created to provide a mixed use live, work, and play environment. This balance was struck by providing accessibility for a variety of travel modes and different trip types. Through planning and transportation modeling, Gorove/Slade established the methods necessary to test access and circulation scenarios that route and circulate the traffic destined for this project. This includes access for pedestrians, bikes, vehicles and buses from regional roads, internal circulation, entering and exiting garage structures and internal garage circulation.
