TYSONS CORNER IS AN EDGE CITY
With Tysons Corner just to the west in McLean, it has become Fairfax County’s central business district and regional commercial district. Some of the employers in this area are AT&T, Boeing, Capital One, Freddie Mac, Gannett (USA Today) and The MITRE Corp with Intelsat moving there this year.
With the largest concentration of office space, 46 million square feet, in Northern Virginia, Tysons Corner is making a great example of an “edge city”. This is an area where there is a concentration of employment, shopping and entertainment are all located outside of the traditional central business district or downtown area in what had previously been a rural or residential community. Occupying one quarter of all office space and one eighth of all retail in Fairfax County, Tysons serves as its “downtown”. With a daytime population of more than 100,000 and a nighttime of fewer than 20,000, this is the reason Tysons Corner has obtained the name of an “edge city”, it is not anywhere near the typical “bedroom community” and only predicting it to reach a 200,000 employment opportunities to 100,000 residents in the future.
With all those people coming in and out of the area, and such a wonderful planned out area, there are two super-regional shopping malls, the Tysons Corner Center, being the nation’s tenth largest and one of the top five malls in the U.S. and the Tysons Galleria, the “Rodeo Drive of the East Coast” inclusive of valet parking and concierge services. With the Washington Metro’s Silver Line, easy access from the recently opened McLean Station and the addition of four Metrorail stations to Tysons this community is easily accessible. Soon to have a 23 mile extension of the Orange Line, linking to into Loudoun County and the Washington Dulles International Airport this is sure to prove that it is still a very increasing area of growth in the Fairfax County.
