SB Architects and LandDesign have unveiled the first look at Rivana at Innovation Station, a 4.4 million-sf, mixed-use development in Northern Virginia. Rivana is the first phase of the greater Innovation Station master plan.

Rivana will encompass nearly 2,000 multifamily housing units, 1.8 million sf of class-A office space, a 185,000-sf retail village, a 265-room boutique hotel, and a network of green and public spaces. Rivana’s western portion will feature Horespen Park, an 11-acre stream valley public park. To the east, existing boulders and rock outcroppings will be preserved in Boulder Ridge, a publicly accessible green space that honors the areas rich, forested landscape.

Rivana Village will be the heart of Rivana at Innovation Station, drawing visitors from the Metro to a village-scaled environment with restaurants, retail, and entertainment concepts. The design for this area reimagines retail development as a multi-faceted community experience, delivering a fully immersive pedestrian experience with alleys, side streets, and courtyards.

The layout of Rivana Village was designed in a patchwork-like quality meant to be reminiscent of villages and farms that have developed over time in response to environmental factors like hills, rivers, and sunlight. The buildings and individual shops will have a distinctive feel and feature locally sourced natural materials that will age gracefully over time. Michael Hsu Office of Architecture is the design architect for the retail village exteriors.

Rivana is slated to begin construction in the first quarter of 2022 with a completion date in 2024.
