With easy access to Metro’s Silver Line, The Tysons District has seen developers intensify efforts to build-out residential capacity, hotels, retail and offices. A real estate panel organized by the Tysons Partnership highlighted some of the strengths of the Tysons area, including its place as the 13th largest office space inventory, an average annual income of $130,000 and 2.6 percent unemployment. According to the November panel, McLean Metro ridership is up 9 percent while overall ridership is down.

The Boro is one of several new or emerging developments in the area. And its one aimed at reimagining Tysons as a place for living—not just work. Another is what awaits Tysons East, surrounding the McLean Metro Station. As The Boro gets finalized, attention is turning to Tysons East’s Scotts Run.

Scotts Run takes shape at Tysons East

Tysons East will be developed nearly as a city unto itself. In total, it has 8.8M square feet of office space, 0.5M square feet of retail, 8.3M square feet of residential space, and 0.9M square feet of hotel development. City Line Partners is the master developer of 40-acre Scott Run, which is designed by SmithGroup as the master architectural firm on the project. The 8M square-foot Scotts Run North and South developments abutt the Capital One and Mitre campuses and are divided by Dolley Madison Boulevard.


New luxury residences and hotel space will emerge at Scotts Run, including a new Archer Hotel and a multi-family residence project led by Skanska. According to Bisnow, construction teams will start work on the Archer Hotel this spring. Skanska purchased a site on the development from City Line Partners in July, said its news release. Skanska Scotts Run, consisting of an estimated 350 residential units, will offer major living accommodation in Scotts Run.

A soon-to-open Wegmans grocery store will draw in shoppers at Scotts Run. A Jones Branch Connector road will provide access to the Beltway, and also south to the Tysons Shopping Center, to help move residents, shoppers, commuters, including Capital One employees, in and out of Scotts Run. With that being said, expect this anchor development in Tysons East to be a big hit.
