What's That Inverted Glass Pyramid on the Left Leaving Dulles Airport?

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gateway, Reston, Herndon, Ashburn, Sterling, Fairfax



Center for Innovative Technology, Herndon VA




If you have flown into Dulles International Airport, you probably noticed this very cool looking glass building peaking above the tree line off to your left as you head up toward the Beltway.






Center for Innovative Technology, Herndon VA







 What is it? It is the Center for Innovative Technology in Herndon VA.

Known locally as: "You know.....that inverted glass pyramid building off the Dulles Toll Road".....CIT just celebrated 25 years of helping co-ordinate and advance Virginia's technology development.












 I love to photograph CIT for obvious reasons. Check out the fall colors as reflected in this beautiful building below:





If you just heard that you have to relocate to Herndon VA from the cosmopolitan area you know call home and are afraid that you will be letting life pass you by as you come to some place out of the movie "Deliverance".....don't worry.

Herndon is one of the nation's leading lights that you never heard of.

 Herndon has 10 hotels, dozens of restaurants,and millions of square feet of high end office space...where there are JOBS!

That is a beautiful building.  I've never seen it.  I'm afraid I'd have a problem on the top floor.

Nice slideshow, Steve. The CIT building probably has some great opportunities for reflective shots, too.

Kay, yes being on the upper floors is a bit weird. We have been to a couple functions there and I spent more time looking around than paying attention to the people I was supposed to be paying attention to.


John, I want to get back over and take some artful photos before the foliage passes on.
