Foulger-Pratt, USAA Break Ground on 25-Story Spec Office Project in Tysons, Virginia
TYSONS, VA. — A partnership between locally based developer Foulger-Pratt and USAA Real Estate has broken ground on Tysons Central, a 25-story speculative office project located within the Tysons Corner submarket of Northern Virginia.
Tysons Central will span 383,628 square feet. Approximately 91 percent of the space will be dedicated to office use, with the remainder for retail and restaurant use. The building will feature 9-foot ceilings and column-free floors that support floor plates ranging in size from 26,000 to 29,000 square feet.
Amenities will include a penthouse and fitness center on the top floor, as well as elevated terraces on the upper portion of the building. Gensler designed the project, which will be located just steps away from the Greensboro Metro Station.
“As competition for talent intensifies, companies have increasingly selected highly connected and amenitized locations that appeal to an educated urban workforce,” says Cameron Pratt, CEO of Foulger-Pratt. “With only a handful of large blocks available in Tysons, we believe the market will respond strongly to the project’s world-class design, modern efficiencies and unrivaled walkability to transit, local residential and destination retail.”
Avison Young has been tapped to lease the building, completion of which is scheduled for 2021.
Tysons Corner is an unincorporated area of Fairfax County that is considered part of the Washington, D.C. metro area and houses the headquarters of companies such as Capital One, Hilton Worldwide, Gannett and Freddie Mac.
