Fairfax County approves another massive project for Tysons
- November 25, 2012
It looks like Tysons is getting another massive development—Cityline Partners’ Arbor Row. The Washington Business Journal reports that the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has unanimously backed the 2.6 million-square-foot project.
It would stretch along 20 acres on Westpark Drive and is expected to include 1.1 million square feet of office space, three residential buildings with as many as 1,180 units and a 250-unit hotel. The hotel would include 60,000 square feet of ground floor retail, 4,000 parking spaces and four acres of park space.
In addition, Arbor Row will offer eight new buildings within a half mile of the Tysons Corner Metro station, scheduled to open next year. Five office buildings on the site now, which are about 40 years old, would be razed.
Cityline reportedly may start construction of the residential buildings in 2014.
As part of the proffer package, the developer has agreed to contribute an 8-acre parcel to the county for athletic fields, a picnic shelter and stream valley trail, 2.5 acres for a new public elementary school and $600,000 for school design.
The approval comes about two months after the board also supported Capital One Financial Corp.‘s planned 4.6 million-square-foot overhaul of its Tysons campus.
According to the WBJ, there are at least nine other Tysons projects, totaling nearly 28 million square feet of mixed use development, in the county’s pipeline.
