25-story speculative office project to begin construction in Tysons
TYSONS, Va., Dec. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Foulger-Pratt and USAA Real Estate announced that they will begin construction on Tysons Central for delivery in 2021, representing the market’s only full-building opportunity for new trophy-class construction. The 383,628 square-foot office building will be located just 35 steps from the entrance to the Greensboro Metro Station, next to The Boro, offering tenants one of the shortest walks to Metro available anywhere on the Silver Line.
Gensler designed the 25-story tower with 9′ ceilings and column-free floors typically ranging from 26,000 to 29,000 square feet. A dramatic two-story lobby invites the outdoor visitors inside with feelings of spaciousness and openness. Two elevated terraces on upper portions of the building create beautifully landscaped common and private outdoor spaces for tenants and their guests.
USAA Real Estate joined the project last September, viewing its commitment as an early investment into the transformation of Tysons from an office-only business district into a vibrant 24/7 mixed-use urban community. «The rapid pace of change underlines the changing ways that people work and live in today’s urban environments. Decisions today are driven by convenience and a desire for a more balanced experience. Our goal for Tysons Central is to create a workplace that enhances daily work life, including multiple on-site amenities to offer tenants and their employees a first-class business environment that enhances recruitment and retention efforts,» remarks Cameron Pratt, Chief Executive Officer of Foulger-Pratt.
The project has been meticulously planned to provide what tenants seek, including on-site amenities with a «sky lobby» and terrace, approximately 19,000 rentable square feet of retail space, a fitness center with lockers, showers, and towel service, and electric car charging stations. As competition for talent intensifies, companies have increasingly selected highly connected and amenitized locations that appeal to an educated urban workforce. With only a handful of large blocks available in Tysons (all second-generation), Foulger-Pratt and USAA Real Estate believe that the market will respond strongly to the project’s world-class design, modern efficiencies, and its unrivaled walkability to transit, local residential and destination retail.
Avison Young has been retained for office leasing at Tysons Central. The brokerage team consists of Dave Millard, Peter Berk, Mike Shuler, and Nick Gregorios, Principals, as well as Caroline Guidera, Senior Associate, of the firm’s Tysons, Virginia office.
«Leading-edge tenants have repeatedly demonstrated that they want to invest in high-quality space that delivers a uniquely branded environment for their clients and employees,» comments Dave Millard, Principal of Avison Young. «Tenants and their employees have more choices than ever before, and the owners here have positioned Tysons Central as a clear choice for the highest quality space available in this submarket.»
