Lake Anne was the first Village Center built as part of Robert E. Simon’s planned community, Reston. Today the Plaza sits in a Historic Overlay District, and is home to a diverse and vibrant community. Residents of the Lake Anne Village area, and Reston as a whole, are committed to local living and to supporting independently owned businesses.


Come experience living local on Lake Anne Plaza in Reston, Virginia. Lake Anne epitomizes the goals for the new town of Reston that founder Robert E. Simon envisioned:

A wide choice of leisure activities

A variety of housing

Concern for the dignity of the individual

The opportunity to live and work in the same community

Commercial, cultural and recreational facilities available from the beginning of development

Financial success

And a high standard for structural and natural beauty

Modeled after a coastal village in Italy, Lake Anne is the model for those 6 goals.

Whether you come to Lake Anne for one of our festivals and concerts, the seasonal Farmer’s Market, a paddle boat ride, or you just come to enjoy the architecture, we hope you have a spectacular experience with Lake Anne.
