Tysons, also known as Tysons Corner, is in the process of transforming itself from a business and shopping center into a place where people can live, work and play, a walkable, sustainable urban center with a plan for foot and bike paths, green spaces and cultural events. Part of that plan also includes housing, and that part of the plan is well underway.
Tysons housing almost exclusively consists of apartments, condominiums and townhomes. Many new complexes have been added to the landscape and feature luxurious amenities to attract the single, established professionals that make up most of the community’s population.
Once a country crossroads, Tysons became an urban commercial area in the 1960s when construction of Tysons Corner Center mall, the Capital Beltway and Dulles Airport spurred its growth. More businesses moved into the area in the decades that followed, and it became a major retail and employment center.
Residents of the community enjoy some of the shortest commutes in the Northern Virginia area if they work in Tysons or along the Dulles Toll Road, but even those who work in DC can get there in about 30 minutes on Metro’s Silver line, which includes three stops in Tysons. Route 7 and Route 123 serve as the main thoroughfares through Tysons. Residents also have easy access to Interstate 495, the Dulles Toll Road and Route 66.
