Fairfax County's evolution into a more urban suburb advanced last night as the Board of Supervisors approved plans to overhaul Tysons Corner Center by surrounding the mall with a ring of eight towers containing offices, more than 1,000 apartments and at least one hotel.
The vision for the transformation according to Tysons Future, includes four office buildings for a total of 1.4 million s.f., 1385 new homes (124 of which is affordable units), a-300 room hotel, under 200,000 s.f. service oriented retail, street-level restaurants, parks and rec center. The development -- and Dulles metrorail with four metro stops for Tysons... will be so welcome for this burb!
Rendering of the future of urban Tysons.
Looking at the master plan, urban Tysons redevelopment will be divided into four phases. The first phase looks like will be around Tysons 1 Lord & Taylor with office, hotel, residential and retail (close to the parking garage). The second phase is to develop the area that connect Tysons 123 station to the mall with retail, office and residential. Phase three is to develop near the parking garage over at Bloomingdale's side with offices. The last phase, phase four -- to build office towers around where Macy's is along with residential.
