Those Fairfax renderings are great! A good friend of mine lives right there near Chain Bridge. I will have to send him a link to see this site. Hey worldcoupe, is there a dedicated website for these changes that he can check out?

Didn't I read recently of Tysons trying to become a more urban type place.. costing in the millions to convert from mostly suburban to urban type development.

Yes, that is correct. I think there's some opposition to this though. I'll have to check it out and get some more details for u.

Here is a link to Restons proposed tallest buildings. Thanks Sugoiben for the info  :) .

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

The curious thing about that article. They claim those buildings will tbe tallest in Reston, but I don't see how that's possible. They are only gonna be 16 stories. There are several existing buildings in the Reston Town Center that are already plenty taller than that, and a couple others in planning/construction phases that will be bigger too. There are existing 20, 19 and 17 story office towers, and two other 21 story buildings in the works(condos I think). Just don't see how these 16 story condos lay claim to Reston's tallest.

What type of ceiling height/foot per floor ratios are we talking. Are they being built on top of a garage and if so is that garage being included in the height?

I thought of that, but I mean we're talking 21 story offices versus 16 story condos, and they said the garage for it will all be underground. Unless every condo is getting cathedral ceilings, I don't see how it adds up. :P

On emporis there are 9 new, approved buildings, 4 with 30 floors. There all in a complex called Tyson's 2 Phase 2. In an article it says that due to the lack of residential space, 1,250 more condiminiums will be added, i wonder if they are part of this?

Since this is an urban forum, i only posted developments in areas i consider to be urban or becoming increasingly urban. If you want to see sprawl, go to a real estate site and search for loudon county, the fastest growing county in the country, and you'll see what i'm talking about.

It's sad loudon had really nice countryside before all the development :cry:

It is truly amazing how far sprawl is reaching out up in Nova. With so many people moving there it is bound to only worsen.

yeaaaa I wasn't calling what you had posted sprawl. But that springfield interchange is so massive in large part to the sprawl problems up there. Whatever happened with Western Loudoun County? Wasn't a line in the sand supposed to be drawn for development? If I had to commute to D.C. every day from Loudoun .... I dunno what I would do! And those fools that commute from Fredericksburg! Crazy stuff.
