Already several years in the making, Scotts Run, a 40-acre development, includes a number of new buildings in transit-rich surroundings, reversing decades of urban sprawl and creating a new opportunity for Tysons to lead in contemporary mixed-use development.
SmithGroup worked closely with developer Cityline Partners to master plan a new urban place with parks and open spaces that integrate the natural features of the Scotts Run stream valley park. The plan introduces a new pedestrian-scaled grid of streets with an engaging mix of uses along Station Street, the development’s main avenue. The new mid-rise and high-rise buildings planned for Scotts Run will lay the groundwork for new retail, office, hotel and residential blocks, fostering a variety of rich experiences at street level.
