Forging Ahead Through Ownership Exchange
Initially owned by SAIC's land development division, the project was sold to The Meridian Group in 2013, who made the decision to keep the project team intact. For over a decade, LandDesign successfully pushed to maintain the vision for The Boro across multiple owners.
Pop-up for Preview
To solicit community engagement and activate the emerging neighborhood, LandDesign devised Tysons’ first pop-up parklet at The Boro. The vibrant 10,000-square-foot parklet was host to many events during the course of several weeks where the community could gather, enjoy local food truck cuisine, and learn more about the new development. The flexible open space featured a colorful paving pattern and a variety of lounge seating options, allowing the design team to test out new products and ideas prior to construction.
Meeting Open Space Requirements with The SkyPark
Ranging in height from 13 to 32 stories, The Boro’s three residential buildings — Rise, Bolden, and Verse — share an outdoor amenity space overlooking The Boro development. The sprawling 28,000-square-foot SkyPark provides residents with a unique private amenity space unrivaled in the region. Located on a ninth floor podium, the SkyPark was an innovative design element critical to ensuring the development moved forward, helping to offset the need for active recreation space to meet Fairfax County’s open space requirements.
