What’s Happening In Tysons

Macerich believes in the transformative power of transit access, WMATA riders unite, a new retailer moves into Tysons, and the plaza gets its final tenant.

SV’s Got The Magic, Magic, Magic (WBJ)

Macerich Tells Washington Business Journal about the magic of rail and why they are pushing for their residential build out at Tysons Corner Center. While both Phase 3 and Phase 4 were already part of the overall rezoning Macerich received approval for before the construction of the Silver Line, the next anticipated phase (Phase 2) was supposed to come first.

The commercial market has been slower due to a decrease in Federal spending, and residential has been red hot. Macerich looks to be in good shape in getting the approval of their final construction plans. Based on the effort and change of plans I expect they are looking to begin construction some time in 2016, especially now that Phase 1 is officially complete.

Goodbye (er Hello) Earl (Patch)

Macerich has completed Phase 1 of their Tysons Corner Center redevelopment with the opening of Vancouver based Earls Kitchen (I dig that they too don’t use an apostrophe).

Paperback Writer (Patch)

Wedding and paper focused retailer Dandelion Patch is looking to move closer to the lucrative Tysons wedding market with a shift in the retail location from Church Street in Vienna to Tyco Road in Tysons. Tyco Road has seen a lot of development recently with the construction of Elan Tysons West(on going) and the first Virginia Tesla dealership. What has been lacking is non-warehouse based retail.

The move from Dandelion Patch will hopefully be a trend that continues which ultimately will provide well rounded retail capable of serving the nearly 1000 new residents that Elan will bring when complete.

Get Up, Stand Up

WMATA has a rider’s union thanks to local (and actual) WMATA watchdog FixMetro. Forming this group will let people go beyond just complaining about WMATA and actually unify our voices to enact real pressure and hopefully change.
