The Container Store Could Anchor Ground Floor Of Tysons West Phase 2 Building


Some clues have emerged that provide a sneak peek into what The JBG Cos has up its sleeve for Phase 2 of Tysons West.

The company has submitted a sign plan application that includes a rendering of a residential over retail building for Tysons West Phase 2. The renderings show a Container Store anchoring the ground floor, and also seeks permission to expand an existing mounted project sign to accommodate additional tenant panels, including one for The Container Store, the Washington Business Journal reports.

Back in 2013, JBG acquired the 1.8-acre Container Store site at 8508 Leesburg Pike for $15.2M. Long-term plans for that site are unclear, but The Container Store is locked into a lease until June 2017. The retailer has additional area locations in Clarendon, Reston, Rockville, Tysons and Tenleytown.

The Container Store would anchor a planned mid-rise residential building known as Tysons West Building C, which appears to be next on the list for JBG at Tysons West. Already developed portions of Tysons West include a mixed-use building anchored by an urban-format Walmart and a Sheraton Premier Hotel.

On tap for the final phase are two high-rises—one office and one residential—at the corner of Westwood Center Drive and Route 7. Additional projects in the pipeline for JBG include Central Place, a mixed-use development with twin 31-story towers in Rosslyn[WBJ]
