Tysons Corner: Five-Year Demonstration Project

Fairfax County has selected the Georgelas Group to partner with them to form a plan, the Tysons Demonstration Project, to illustrate the future development of Tysons Corner.

The Tysons Demonstration Project will consist of hundreds of community planning meetings, and will reflect five years of planning.


First and foremost to turning this vision into a reality is good urban planning. All factors must be considered, such as the effect the project will have on the immediate community and the surrounding environment. How a design functions within the community must be considered. The Corporate Office Centre at Tysons II and the 1861 International Drive buildings are perfect examples of good urban planning.

The plan hopes to accomplish a Tysons Corner community that is connected to the Washington D.C. metropolitan district starting with a public transit system that will be the best in the nation.


The Silver Line subway is expected to be open in 2013 and will provide four stations in Tysons Corner. Once completed, traveling to, from, and around Tysons Corner will be a breeze! There will also be a convenient "Kiss and Ride" which will provide convenient metro access for neighbors.


In addition to the metro stations, over twenty-eight acres surrounding Tysons West Metro station have been designated to create a grid of streets to transform Tysons Corner.

In addition to transportation, the Demonstration Project will focus on a mixed-use community. A proper blend of restaurants, hotels, office space, residences, shopping, and entertainment will abound in Tysons Corner.


The future Tysons corner will be a place to work, play, shop, and live...not just a place to work. Many steps are already underway to bring this vision to reality.


There are currently many multi-use projects that are being planned to ensure the Tysons Demonstration Project's vision will indeed be a reality. "A Look into the Future of Tysons Corner" delineates some of these projects.
