Taking Advantage of Topography
LandDesign employed creative strategies to integrate the elevated rail line with the open space network, using topography to provide a unique multi-level open space experience while transitioning to street level. In shaping the spaces between buildings, LandDesign is able to craft the urban expression that is key to making Tysons a great urban place.
Improving Access to Recreation
LandDesign worked with public and private sector stakeholders to locate full-size sports fields throughout Tysons, including Quantum Field at Tysons Technology Center, providing an important recreational amenity for the growing population, while retaining valuable developable land. Strong relationships with Fairfax County staff, consistent communication with the community, and realistic 3D graphic presentations have been key to navigating individual project progress, while also advancing the larger vision — creating a successful new downtown in Tysons.
The View: Making a Grand Entrance
Planned to include over 3-million square feet of mixed use development spread across six buildings and a multi-block urban park, The View will be one of the largest developments ever built in Tysons and is set to completely transform the western gateway of Tysons. Directly adjacent to the Spring Hill Metro station, The View is designed to be the optimal location and gateway that draws people off the Metro and into Tysons’ various districts.
Mere steps from the Greensboro Metro Station, this 18-acre mixed use development features one of the first signature green spaces in Tysons — Boro Park. This one-acre urban park is thoughtfully designed to enrich the everyday experience of The Boro community, hosting a number of events such as movies on the green, concerts and markets.
Ovation at Park Crest
As Tysons’ first luxury high-rise apartment complex, Ovation at Park Crest brought upscale urban living to Tysons. Featuring modern amenities and sustainable practices, this community achieved LEED Gold certification, setting the standard for future developments.
