The suburban Washington DC community of Tysons Corner has an exceptional redevelopment opportunity within the DC Metropolitan area with the arrival of four new Metrorail Stations. SmithGroupJJR’s master plan for Cityline Partners’ properties at the new Tysons/McLean station will transform that area into a transit-oriented, mixed-use community with the Scotts Run Stream Valley Park at its heart.
The development plan introduces a new pedestrian-scaled grid of streets with an engaging mix of uses along Station Street, the development’s main avenue. A total of 17 new buildings are planned, including residential, office and retail uses along with a full-service hotel.
Scotts Run Station South will feature highly sustainable architecture, site, landscape, and stormwater design throughout. New buildings will be designed for energy efficiency, with minimum LEED-Silver certification for office and LEED certification for residential. The park will add another dimension of livability and sustainability to the area, featuring a restored stream, new trails and public open spaces. The result is a holistic vision for transforming this part of the suburban edge city into a true urban center.
