Comstock Holding Companies, Inc. announced that Google has signed a lease in Comstock Development Services, L.C.’s signature office building at Reston Station.
The global technology company has had a longstanding presence in Reston and will start moving its current employee base into Reston Station later this summer.
Google will occupy the top floors of the trophy building designed by world-renowned architect Helmut Jahn. The sixteen-story building with a concrete exoskeleton over a glass curtain wall is now an icon in the Dulles Corridor, towering above the Dulles Toll Road and Metro’s Silver Line Wiehle-Reston East station.
“Google first opened a small office in Reston back in 2005 and we’ve since grown to close to 200 employees, working on major projects across engineering, sales and more,” said Liz Schwab, Head of External Affairs for Google in Virginia. “We’re confident that Reston Station will be a great new home for us and will provide room for future growth. We’re proud to call Reston home.”
This new space will give the company room to continue growing their short and long-term local presence in the state. Google joins office tenant Spaces, and restaurants Founding Farmers, Matchbox, Starbucks and Sweet Leaf in the rapidly-expanding neighborhood.
“We are most thankful for the opportunity to be home to an industry leader like Google. We had the opportunity to discuss with Google our vision for the Reston Station neighborhood – what it is today and what the future holds – and are very happy that our ideas intersect,” said Tim Steffan, Comstock EVP.
Comstock recently announced the addition of CVS to its Reston Station tenant roster, which will be located on the Plaza level at the entrance to the Metro station in Comstock’s second office building that is currently under construction.
