The Washington Post reported today that the visionary real estate developer who hired Hickory Cluster Architect Charles M. Goodman, FAIA, to design major Tyson's Corner office parks and The Commons at McLean multi-family apartment complex, WestGroup Management LLC former founder Gerald T. Halpin, died August 14, 2017 at age 94. Like Reston's founder Robert E. Simon, Jr. earlier at Hickory Cluster, Halpin commissioned Charles M. Goodman and Associates to transform raw land into notable and successful works of Modern, and later Post-Modern, Architecture. Goodman's WestGroup buildings exhibited many of the same design elements used earlier at River Park Mutual Homes in Washington, DC and then in Hickory Cluster, including bi-panel and tri-panel aluminum window units, and jutting structural component ends later expressed larger as building mass.

HCA typically holds Regular Meetings on the third Wednesday of each month, except when holidays or other schedules conflict. However, the Wednesday, August 16 meeting has been rescheduled to 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, August 23, 2017 at RCC Lake Anne to ensure full and timely Executive Session discussion and award of street asphalt re-paving proposals, and to accommodate a key HCA Director unavailable the previous week. In addition, because of an RCC facility scheduling conflict on Wednesday, September 20, the HCA Regular Meeting that month will be held instead at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, September 21, 2017 at RCC Lake Anne. As usual, HCA will follow its typical Regular Meeting agenda.
