Take Action Now: Help Save Breuer’s API Building in Reston

Marcel Breuer API

The Fairfax Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing tomorrow (July 26) at 4:30 pm to determine the fate of  the American Press Institute (API) building in Reston by modern master Marcel Breuer and Hamilton P. Smith. Last month, the Fairfax County Planning Commission recommended that a developer’s plan for the site be denied. Take Action Now to help efforts promoting its preservation. Here is a good piece by local advocates on why the building should be saved. The petition has nearly 1,600 signatures as I write this. Add yours now.

The API closed up shop and joined with the Newspaper Association of America, which is based in Arlington. The move left API’s 1972-1978 brutalist headquarters vacant, sitting on 4.6 park-like acres in the Northern Virginia suburbs.  The 42,334 square foot office building is located at 11690 Sunrise Valley Dr. A developer wants to build townhouses on the spot amid the Metro expansion to Reston.
