While life continues on at other parts of Commons of McLean, a residential complex between Tysons East and Pimmit Hills, a collection of buildings at the southernmost point of the property are being reclaimed by nature as they await reconstruction.
The property was separated from the other residences at the Commons of McLean when it was purchased by Toll Brothers.
Mark Simms, the vice president of land development at Toll Brothers, said the property is planned to be converted into 211 townhomes and condominiums. The new properties are planned to be offered for sale starting spring 2020.
Currently, the area is a Chernobyl-like clearing of empty homes and litter dropped by people using the homes as a cut through. Weeds have started growing up to knee or waist height in front of some of the buildings and birds are nested in the cutaways for appliances in the sides of former homes.

The Vienna Town Council agreed on Monday (Dec. 4) to raise the town’s cap on funding for the new library’s construction to approximately $4.7 million — a $590,000 increase from the previous maximum set in 2020.
