Petition to Save API Building in Reston From Demolition
At 48,000 sq ft, the API building is big enough to house Reston Regional Library which will be bulldozed to make way for residential high-rise buildings in Reston Town Center.
The county has said they want 39,000 sq ft on the ground floor of one of the residential towers for the new library; however, parking will be limited. The middle of Reston Town Center is not an ideal location for a regional library. Additionally, the community will have no library during construction and that could be 2 to 4 years.
There is $10 million available in library bond funds to pay for the new regional library.
Here is the petition which has more information on Marcel Breuer and the API building. Please sign the petition by June 13 so signatures can be sent to the Fairfax County Planning Commissioners.
