Mailing address switch reflects growing identity of Tysons Corner
- May 17, 2011
The Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) has adopted a Tysons Corner mailing address for its headquarters, a change that recognizes the area’s growing identity as a business center.
Tysons Corner’s prominence as one of the nation’s largest business districts is well known in Virginia, but until recently many companies and residences in the area had to use either Vienna or McLean as an address.
Now the U.S. Postal Service is allowing businesses and homes in the 22182 and 22102 ZIP codes to use Tysons Corner or Tysons as a mailing address as well. The FCEDA has been located in Tysons Corner for more than 30 years.
“The Tysons Corner mailing address has gained greater reach and resonance as a business location over the year, and we want to capitalize on that,” said Gerald L. Gordon, president and CEO of the FCEDA. “The option to use Tysons Corner as a formal mailing address also helps the Economic Development Authority market the area as one of the nation’s most dynamic business settings.”
Tysons Corner now has more than 26 million square feet of office space and almost 6 million square feet of retail space. About 110,000 people work in Tysons Corner and 17,000 live there.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors last year adopted a plan to transform Tysons Corner into a mixed-use urban center, which eventually would have 100,000 residents and provide jobs for 200,000. Much of the growth would be focused on four Metro stations that are scheduled to open in late 2013.
