17Fifty at Reston Town Center - the global headquarters for information technology contractor Leidos - is a 17-story office tower on the eastern side of Reston Town Center in Fairfax County, Virginia. The 373,000-square foot complex includes 8,000 square feet of retail space and four below-grade parking levels on reinforcing concrete slabs to accommodate 230 vehicles.
We provided structural design services to Shalom Baranes Associates for the office tower, which opened in 2020.
- The building’s design features dramatic angles which create multiple opportunities for outdoor spaces to serve as private terraces on the third and ninth floors and a rooftop greenspace with amenity spaces.
- Columns were carefully configured to coordinate with optimal column-free office space above, and efficient parking layouts below, by sloping and transitioning sizes of individual columns.
- The tower is designed to achieve LEED Gold certification.
