Developers retain Transwestern to provide leasing for The View
Transwestern announced Thursday that it has been retained by international joint venture Tysons Development LLC to provide leasing services for 873,830 square feet of space in the office tower proposed for The View.
The mixed-use project proposed for Tysons is currently under zoning review by Fairfax County. Tysons Development recently submitted an updated plan for The View to the county that includes 1,418,586 square feet of office, nearly tripling the office space of 529,673 square feet submitted in the original plan in spring 2017.
Tysons Development is a joint venture between Northern Virginia-based Clemente Development Co. and its international development partner, Khaled Juffali Co. of Saudi Arabia.
The View would consist of a block of office, residential, retail, hotel, cultural and recreational venues at the Spring Hill Metro Station in Tysons.
The development would encompass about 3 million square feet of space in six buildings. At the center of the project, designed by Gensler Architects, would be the office tower which, at 600 feet, would be the tallest commercial structure between Philadelphia and Charlotte, N.C. It would be topped by a sky garden, accessible to the public.
“The View will be to the nation’s capital region what Rockefeller Center is to New York City. It will become an epicenter of global commerce, regional entertainment and hospitality, and luxurious living, as well as a signature element of the Washington-Maryland-Virginia skyline,” C. Daniel Clemente, a principal in Tysons Development LLC, and the CEO of Clemente Development, said in a statement.
With a Tysons location, the View would be close to downtown Washington, D.C., Washington Dulles International Airport, and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
Transwestern said it plans to market to an internationally-connected range of businesses, corporations, law firms and consultants.
The development will include over 90,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, a cultural center with a performing arts space and outdoor amphitheater and a five-star hotel. Developers hope to break ground in 2019 and finish the project by in mid-2021.
“The View will redraw the Tysons skyline and infuse the area with a new sense of vibrancy,” Phil McCarthy, a member of Transwestern’s leasing team said in a statement. “This development offers a city center environment, sophisticated design, and modern urban planning with a grid of streets and a vibrant cultural center and arts destination. It presents an unprecedented branding opportunity to corporations seeking to make a bold statement.”
