DC Region's Tallest Building Proposed In Tysons
The region's tallest commercial building is under construction in Tysons, but a new tower has been proposed that would eclipse it by 145 feet.
Clemente Development has applied to build a 2.8M SF mixed-use development next to the Spring Hill Metro stop on the Silver Line, featuring a 615-foot-tall tower, the Washington Business Journal reports.
The project, branded as The View at Tysons, is expected to cost $1.3B. The centerpiece would be the 48-story, 1.25M SF high-rise currently called Iconic Tower. It would be composed of 840K SF of condos, 412K SF of hotel and 44K SF of retail, including an open-air shopping plaza.
The building would be 145 feet taller than the Capital One HQ building, currently under construction in Tysons, and 228 feet taller than JBG's nearly completed Central Place in Rosslyn, which will be the region's tallest tower for a short time. It will be 60 feet taller than the Washington Monument, the region's tallest structure.
The development would also include two shorter office buildings with ground-floor retail totaling 566K SF, two residential buildings with retail and an urban park.
Clemente is under contract to buy the seven-acre site, currently made up of low-rise office, automotive businesses and vacant land. The plan still must go through the Fairfax County zoning process before becoming reality.
