In 2019, christopher assisted with the approval of 555 Herndon, a pedestrian-oriented, high density urban mixed-use project located within the Town of Herndon’s transit-oriented core, as shown above. christopher’s services included civil engineering, land planning, landscape architecture and surveying.
An entitlement amendment is now being filed for this project, where christopher will help the client with this approval through the Town of Herndon process, including an amended development plan and assisting with staff and public meetings as well as proffer preparation. The project is still mixed-use, creating a hub of urban development, with a modified development program that includes a 24-story office building with an integrated residential building of up to 10 floors that has ground level retail and structured parking. The site will continue to be designed to provide adequate travel circulation for cars, trucks, bikes and pedestrians alike to create a space in which surface sharing is paramount. Responding to the desire for a more pedestrian-focused development, there will be a multifaceted plaza space including open-use space that could be utilized in many ways, making the space active and adaptable for events, as well as everyday life of the residents.
