Tysons Embracing Smart Growth

Known for reinventing itself time and time again, it appears Tysons Corner is now embracing smart growth for the future that could have a real impact on drawing more residents to the area. Long identified as a mostly business-related and shopping destination, efforts are finally underway to grow housing in the area and two planned grocery stores could be the catalyst for bringing that change.

The largest Whole Foods in the region is set to open in 2019 while the area’s also preparing to welcome its first Wegmans the same year. Proponents say two major grocery stores will help immensely in delivering a more residential-friendly vibe to Tysons Corner. While currently there are homes priced from the low $200,000s to upwards of $600,000 they are mostly on the outskirts of Tysons Corner, and ambitious plans call for new growth. 

Already some developers seem to be on board. A new, 120-unit luxury condo high-rise could break ground in spring of 2017, the first to be built in Fairfax County in years. Aimed at an older buyer, the larger units are expected to appeal more to empty nesters and established professionals who want a walk-able, urban-like neighborhood, but don’t want to buy in one of the newer neighborhoods currently attracting a younger clientele. An extension of the Silver Line into the community was one way planners had hoped to make the area more attractive to new and existing residents, alike.

As the area eyes smart growth for the future, it should be noted that office space is being absorbed at a quicker pace in Tysons Corner than other areas, while dining and entertainment options remain plentiful. Still, though, planners know that to make the area desirable to more residents it needs to become more pedestrian friendly, with additions like new grocery stores that will appeal to those searching for a new home surrounded by all of the things they need and want.
