Reston's First Clusters:
Waterview & Hickory Cluster
2021, by Alex Campbell
These two clusters were considered a radical concept in Virginia in the early 1960's, designed without large individual yards but with broad community spaces. Waterview Cluster was designed by Cloethiel Smith. The first residents to move into Reston were Mr. and Mrs. Samuel A. Furcron, who moved into a Waterview Cluster home on December 9, 1964. Waterview Cluster consists of 90 townhouses.
Hickory Cluster townhouses, designed by Charles Goodman, originally featured an underground parking lot. The cluster is divided into three blocks of homes arranged around acres of green space and a pond.
