Completed 2004

4.65 acres, 9-stories, 240,000 sf, build-to-suite headquarters and conference facility.


This build-to-suit headquarters and conference facility is located within the urban core portion of Reston Town Center on a 4.65-acre site provides. The building is nine stories tall and encompasses over 240,000 square feet of office and conference space for more than 700 employees. In addition, structured parking is located below an entrance-landscaped plaza.

The design of the project is intended to reflect Sallie Mae’s mission of service to the higher education community with an image of a progressive, forward-thinking design that complements the other buildings within the Town Center while maintaining its own identity. The recipient of an AIA Maryland Design Award, the jury noted, "The quality of the interior spaces is great. The material selections, particularly the expression of each floor of this building and plan, and how that translates to the elevation were very successful. The overlapping and intersecting different massing was effective in making a large building not look quite so large. They also did a nice job integrating the landscape and the parking structure to make the parking disappear as much as possible, creating an attractive curbside for the whole project."

WDG was the Executive Architect working in association with Design Architect Boggs & Partners.
