New Athletic Field Planned for Tysons

A hotel planned near Leesburg Pike has been nixed by the developers in favor of a new athletic field.

The field is proposed for 8229 Boone Blvd, a street parallel to Leesburg Pike and halfway between Chain Bridge Road and Gallows Road. P.S. Business Parks owns the property.

The athletic field is part of fulfilling requirements associated with the developer’s The Mile project northeast of Tysons Galleria.

The application notes that the field will include synthetic turf, field lighting, bleachers and other equipment. Parking for the field will be located in the Tycon II and Tycon III office buildings next door.

According to the application:

The proposed athletic field will serve the growing needs of the Tysons community. It is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan, which calls for developers to provide athletic fields in Tysons… The proposed soccer field will satisfy the field expectation associated with the rezoning and development of The Mile, a residential mixed use development in the North Central District.

It’s a move that will likely be popular with local citizens groups, which have called for more athletic fields to be added throughout Tysons.
