The neighboring properties nearby Westwood Village are quickly evolving to help turn Tysons Corner into a model of Urban Transit Oriented development. This means a more pedestrian and bike friendly environment where people can work, shop, live, and play. The primary catalyst of these recent changes is due to the development of the Dulles Metro which extends through Tysons Corner to the Dulles International Airport.
The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) is constructing a 23-mile extension of the existing Metrorail system, which will be operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority from East Falls Church to Washington Dulles International Airport west to Ashburn.
The extension will serve Tysons Corner, Virginia’s largest employment center, and the Reston Herndon area, the state’s second largest employment concentration. And, it will provide a one-seat ride from Dulles International Airport to downtown Washington.
The closest station entrance to Westwood Village is 1/4 mile away at the corner of Rt. 7 and Spring Hill Rd. For, more information, please visit the Dulles Metro website here: http://www.dullesmetro.com/about/index.html
Tysons West is immediately adjacent to Westwood Village. This development consists of Walmart as its anchor tenant, along with 24 Hour Fitness, SmashBurger, and Moby Dick House of Kabob. There will be several other small scale retail establishments and medical office suites that complete the development.
