Reston, Virginia was formed in the early 1960's as a pioneering advancement in the comprehensive master planning of suburban communities. The 7,500-acre project founded by Robert E. Simon, continues to thrive. Excellence in planning, design and construction is evident throughout the community, and particularly in Reston Town Center, the community's urban core.
In every meaningful financial metric of every representative product class, Reston Town Center outperforms competing markets by at least 15%. Planned in the 1980's, Reston Town Center has won more 23 awards for excellence in planning and design including the American Institute of Architects Award for Excellence in Urban Design. Reston Town Center is well equipped to continue its success and handle growth that will come from the extension of Washington's Metro, with the Silver Line soon to have three stops in Reston, including one at the Town Center.
The Reston community, developed around the core principles of affordability, diversity, mixed-use, public space, and community oversight, has flourished, offering scenic living and a community-oriented culture not found in most towns.
New City Founder Greg Hamm served in various capacities for Reston Land Corporation and later Terrabrook, the Master Developers of Reston from 1991 to 1999, and then on behalf of third-party developers from 2004 to 2007. Throughout his tenure in Reston, Mr. Hamm has planned or assisted in the development of more than 3.5 million feet of development capacity for office, retail, hotel and residential projects in and around Reston Town Center.
Driven by the desire to see that Reston continues to meet the principals instilled by its founder, Hamm’s work in the community is ongoing.
