Clark Construction Group joined representatives from BXP on Oct. 19 to celebrate the topping out of Skymark Reston Town Center, which the contractor describes as “the tallest mixed-use residential tower in the Capital Region”.
Architect SCB designed the 40-story transit oriented development to expand Reston Town Center in Fairfax County.
The residential high-rise will deliver 464 units and is built over a podium containing ground-floor retail, 44 loft-style residential units, and 80,000 sq. ft. of office space across four stories. The building will also feature five levels of above- and below-grade parking.
“Clark thrives on delivering the largest and most complex projects that push the boundaries of engineering and construction,” Clark Construction division president Terry Simon said in a statement. “We look forward to the completion of another successful collaboration with long-time partner BXP to deliver this superstructure.”
Since breaking ground, concrete crews from Baker Concrete Construction have placed a combined 46,000 cu yd. of concrete to shape thetower. With this milestone complete, the team will shift its focus to completing the building envelope and interior work.
Skymark comes on the heels of the delivery of 1950 and 2000 Opportunity Way, the first two office buildings at the expansion of BXP’s Reston Town Center. In addition to the two office towers, the 1.1 million sq. ft. development project includes street retail, a shared below-grade parking facility, a public plaza, and multiple outdoor amenity and green spaces.
“BXP is thrilled with the progress of this iconic landmark project in Reston,” said David Miller, senior vice-president of construction at BXP. “This achievement is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the talented men and women who have worked tirelessly to get us to where we are today.”
Substantial completion for Skymark is slated for early 2025.
