Meridian Proposes 1M SF Addition To The Boro
An affiliate of The Meridian Group filed an application this month with Fairfax County to add 1M SF of residential, senior living and retail development to The Boro, the Washington Business Journal first reported.
The new buildings would be constructed along Westpark Drive on two sites totaling 14 acres, one of which Meridian acquired in late 2018, the other owned by a Northwestern Mutual affiliate. The application said Meridian was acting as an agent for the Northwestern Mutual property.
The proposal calls for a mix of uses across four buildings. It would include one 90-foot-tall residential building totaling up to 430 residential units and 25K SF of retail, another 90-foot building totaling 210K SF of residential space and 25K SF of retail, and a 175-foot-tall senior living building with up to 210 independent living units and 53K SF of assisted living and memory care units, plus 18K SF of retail.
The fourth site has two options laid out in the proposal: a 145K SF health club building and a 42-unit townhouse community. WDG Architecture is working with the developer on the project.
The project's first phase welcomed tenants in the fall with a 20-story office building, three residential buildings, a movie theater and 250K SF of retail anchored by the region's largest Whole Foods. The Meridian Group has continued to acquire properties in Tysons this year, paying $58M for two office buildings near the Tysons Corner Center mall in April.
