Tall Oaks Village Center
Opened in 1974, it was Reston's third village center. The original intention was to model it after European hill towns and was named for the impressive tall oak trees growing throughout the neighborhoods. It was designed by architect Rick Collins of Collins and Kronstadt. It had low visibility and an inward orientation. The design prioritized convenience and comfort, and it had a residential quality to its design. Originally, the center featured 16 shops, 3 office units. The concept assumed that most visitors would walk to this village center. In 2019, redevelopment of this village center began.
