Around Tysons: Dinner With a Show

DCEater announces the soft opening of Roll Play, Which Brings Fast Casual Vietnamese To Tysons. There is a significant asian population in Tysons, and despite Eden Center in Falls Church being the epicenter of Vietnamese food in Northern Virginia, Roll Play’s owners decided to test their fast casual concept in Tysons. Roll Play will have to compete against many heavy weight fast-food and fine dining restaurants nearby but being at the corner of International Drive and Route 7 may give an access advantage for those looking for food from the nearby Gallows Road office area.

In entertainment news, a huge announcement that Cirque Du Soleil has selected Tysons as its new home for 38 shows this summer, with an option to continue for further years. Another big entertainment attraction to add to the annual list of festivals and concerts will help put on display all of the changes happening in Tysons. The event will be located at Lerner Townsquare, directly adjacent to the Tysons Corner metro station. Hopefully, one of the big changes in the direct vicinity of the big tent will be pedestrian improvements at the Tysons Boulevard intersection which should happen this year. (Washington Post)

The Tysons-Pimmit Library will close for 18 months to undergo renovations that are both functionally necessary for upkeep and help to modernize the library interior. A temporary location will be located about a quarter mile up the road, closer to Tysons, and across the street from Marshall High School at 7700 Leesburg Pike.

A contentiously debated application heads to the Planning Commission on Wednesday when Renaissance Centro Tysons, a proposed 25-story residential condominium looks for approval on their final development plans. County staff have previously noted their objection to the affordable housing method of compliance as covered in a WBJ article last month. The FDP plans are publicly available now within the February Planning Commission schedule PDF, we’ll be delving into the details this week.
