Directions from Wiehle/Reston East Metro Station (Silver Line) to the Academy Office
Our office is now accessible by Metro. After passing through Metro turnstiles, exit the station to your right; cross the Dulles Toll Road on bridge. At the bottom of the escalator/elevator, head toward the office buildings/parking garages on the right.
Take a right and briefly walk along the access road with office buildings and parking garages on your left. There is an entrance to a parking garage directly across from the Metro entrance. Enter the parking garage and walk up the ramp on your right, following overhead signs to building 11440. At the top of the ramp, there are two linked chains that prevent auto traffic from moving between the two garages. Cross over/under the chains.
You are now in the garage for 11480 Commerce Park Drive (on level 2). Look to the left for signage “G2 Elevator/Stairs.” Take the elevator down to level 3 or stairs down one flight for entrance to building 11480.
