Samson Realty Reston VA Real Estate - Northern Virginia Lake Anne Plaza
 Lake Anne Village Plaza - The first village to open in the new town back in the 1960's, Lake Anne Village has withstood the test of time. Water front and water view housing is a key component of the Lake Anne design: Condos, town houses and detatched single family.

Photo above: Lake Anne Village Plaza which is a multi-use urban core centered around beautiful Lake Anne. Below: Town Center, the highly regarded downtown urban core.
Begun in 1990 and planned as the downtown core, Reston Town Center has finally reached and far surpassed the designers vision. The highly regarded and awarded urban core has come of age as both a place of business and the local entertainment hot spot. Weekday, weekend ... morning, noon and night, today Town Center is bustling with activity.

About Reston VA

There have been multiple attempts in the past 120 years to develop the land known today as Reston. Robert E. Simon, Jr. is the father of modern day Reston and the community is named from Mr. Simon's initials and the English variation of town or Reston.

Robert E. Simon was clearly the visionary who brought together the revolutionary design for the new town and sold the concept to local government. His design vision has been borrowed and copied from ever since across the region, country and world. Reston's master plan is just about completed in 2006 and there can be no doubt that Mr. Simon was the master planner.

Many of the villages and urban cores of Reston have been highly recognized and awarded. The nearly completed Town Center is both a tremendous financial success as well as a community focal point and residential and commercial success. Town Center has become the hub of Reston and beyond ... just as it was planned with some minor modification roughly 40 years ago. Town Center is rapidly becoming some of the most valuable real estate in Northern Virginia.

Reston has fulfilled the dreams of many as a place to call home and as a economic success. The possibility of rail mass transit coming to the town in the future grows more and more likely by the day.  Reston Town Center Blog.
