Lake Anne Village was created in 1963 as part of the new town movement, and Reston was the first modern, post-war planned community in America by Robert E. Simon. Conklin Rossant Architects were hired as master planners to incorporate higher density housing to conserve open space, as well as mixed use areas. Lake Anne Village Center was designed by James Rossant.
In the Village, all businesses are local, as there are no chain stores or chain restaurants allowed in Lake Anne. Lake Anne is now designated a historic district.
There are also some lovely lake-side dwellings as you can see in these photos.
The shots above and below are Gregg's. His second photo is a reflection of the sky in the water.
In this photo Gregg can be seen standing in the middle. Condominiums are on the top of the building and shops and restaurants are on the bottom.
