Groundbreaking Wednesday for The Boro in Tysons
A groundbreaking ceremony will be held Wednesday as construction moves forward on The Boro, a 4.2 million-square-foot development in the heart of Tysons.
The Boro will include a mix of office, residential, entertainment and retail space, including a Whole Foods Market and a cinema. The development will be located within steps of the Greensboro Metro station on the new Silver line.
Representatives of The Meridian Group and Kettler, the project’s developers, will attend. Also scheduled to speak are: Sharon Bulova, chairman of the Fairfax Board of Supervisors; and Jim Corcoran, president and CEO of the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce.
The ceremony will begin at 4 p.m. with speakers beginning at 4:40 p.m. It will be held at the corner of Greensboro Place and Solutions Drive in Tysons, near the site of the demolished Enterprise Building, a 13-story office building that once stood at the former SAIC campus in Tysons.
The Meridian Group acquired the former SAIC campus in 2013. The Bethesda, Md., investment firm renovated the three exiting office buildings and demolished the fourth.
