first place I ran across the work of Wayne Williams was at the
Watergate at Landmark complex in Alexandria. Where he designed the lush
$2 million amenities package.
this California landscape and recreational architect is working his
magic at the soon-to-be-opened Rotonda condominium near Tysons Corner.
is one major difference. At Watergate, Williams was called upon to
place the amenities in and around four buildings that already had been
sited to the land. At the Rotonda, he has done the site plan as well.
a doubt, the Watergate amenities were as innovative a package as had
been seen in the Washington area in some time. But the entire Rotonda
project is even more so. It promises to be one of the most fascinating
in these parts.
AT THE ROTONDA, Williams has designed a "Renaissance Village"
based on the elaborate Hadrian's Palace grounds north of Rome. The five
10-story buildings will be drawn together around a central "piazza" by pathways, gardens and criss-crossing textures, colors and materials.

A Wonderful Experience. . .
Renneye Pike recently handled the preparation and sale of a condominium located
at 8360 Greensboro Drive, #826. We chose Ms. Pike to handle the sale as
a result of her ad in the Rotunda newspaper, recommendations of several
friends, and finally our meeting.
Pike is competent, enthusiastic and most important true to her word. Up
front she told us what we needed to do to get the most from the sale.
There were several items that she said would make the sale move ahead,
but they were our choice. The best part was, she said that with the help
of her team it could "just happen".
condominium had been occupied since 1978, and had all the little rough
spots that come with day to day living. Ms. Pike was able to see through
the clutter and made a plan. She and her team moved in fixing,
painting, carpeting, and coordinating all that needed to be
accomplished. Ms. Pike's love of the challenge, and ability to
communicate with me, make the project transparent. Before all the "fixing"
began we had an offer, and by the time the project was finished we had
eight offers. Ms. Pike negotiated and ended up with a sale price that
was one hundred and forty thousand dollars higher than the original
offer. Integrity and hard work, that is the way Renneye Pike operates.
She really enjoys her profession and it shows.
Thank you, to everyone involved. A wonderful experience.
