Tysons Pipeline Dream: Four Projects In The Works
Tysons has one of the most active development pipelines in the region, including several multi-building, mixed-use projects coming up.
The Meridian Group’s multi-phase, 4M SF, mixed-use project The Boro is feet from the Greensboro Metro Station. It combines residential, retail, entertainment and office space to “capture the spirit of a true downtown experience in Tysons Corner,” according to Meridian.
The first phase will introduce 750 residential units spanning four buildings. It embodies the type of project that brings Tysons closer to a live/work/play neighborhood, with streetscapes, pedestrian-friendly roadways, green space, grocery, entertainment, high-end restaurants and destination retail.
Highlights include the 70k SF flagship Whole Foods Market, the largest in the DC area, a 15-screen ShowPlace ICON Theatre and the Gensler-designed Greensboro Tower office space.
Capital One will redevelop its 24.5-acre corporate campus to adapt to Tysons Corner’s changing landscape and its 4,000 local employees’ needs. Its 930k SF tower, standing at 470 feet, is underway and on track to be completed in 2018.
Capital One is working closely with Fairfax County on its 5M SF build-out to accommodate the foot traffic the new Wegmans, included in Capital One's project, and McLean Metro Station bring.
The microcosm, according to the bank, will “fully incorporate its existing and proposed office towers and add a host of retail and cultural options.”
Kettler’s $57M, 425k SF, five-story Highgate at Metropolitan Mile will arrive this spring, at 7915 Jones Branch Drive, with 395 units.
Kettler enlisted Design Collective as lead architect to help deliver 28,500 SF of amenity space, featuring a clubhouse, a pool, courtyards, a fitness center and a party room. Accompanying the LEED Silver Highgate will be 157k SF of parking.
LCOR’s 338k SF Kingston at Anderson Park is southwest of the intersection of Anderson Road and Ambergate Place, and is comprised of two towers, one with 13 and one with 15 stories, connected by a skybridge.
Baltimore-based Design Collective is the lead architect. The building will feature a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units and amenities, including a landscaped courtyard with an outdoor swimming pool and fire pits, a dog-grooming station, a golf simulator, a fitness center and a community room. All this is packaged with 383 parking spaces, and it is anticipated the building will receive LEED Silver certification.
