This picture captures WDG Architecture's rendition of the future for Tysons Corner.
WDG Architecture is part of the team for the Tysons Demonstration Project.
The vision of the project is to turn Tysons Corner into a community that offers a place to work, live and play; a community that is linked to the Washington DC Metropolitan District via the Metro's Silver Line to make for a community that is truly self-contained.
Any community that is self-contained must include a mix of residences and businesses. It must be easily accessible both by transportation and walking. Tysons corner will achieve this very successfully.
My past blogs have discussed the future growth with the construction planned for 1775 Tysons Boulevard office buildingand Tysons Tower. In addition, construction is planned for Greystar's 25-story, 404-unit apartment complex. The Georgelas Group has plans to sell land at the intersection of Leesburg Pike and Spring Hill Road to Greystar. Greystar in turn will build the apartment complex.
Tyson West is another mixed-use development by JGB Rosenfeld is currently under construction. It will include office space, a fitness facility, apartments, restaurants, a renovated Sheraton Premiere hotel and a Wal-Mart. It will be located next to the Tysons West metro station. The Wal-Mart store will be 79,000 square feet and will focus on fresh foods and groceries.
The future Tysons corner will indeed be a self-sustained city as well as a thriving business district. It will have one of the best transit systems in the nation, and will no longer be a traffic congested nightmare. Citizens will be able to walk to work, home, entertainment and shopping.
Fairfax County has plans for parks, schools and libraries, art and entertainment, as well as additional police and firefighters that we will be needed to sustain Tyson Corners growth.
