Did you know Tysons is divided into eight districts?
The 2010 comprehensive plan for Tysons outlined that “the transformed Tysons will be organized around eight districts, each with a mix of land uses.” Four are transit-oriented, while the remaining four are not.
Here’s where the districts are:
- West Side is a residential area hugging Vienna between Route 123 and the Dulles Toll Road.
- Old Courthouse, in the southwestern part of Tysons, is below Route 123 and to the west of Leesburg Pike.
- North Central is the portion sandwiched below the Dulles Airport Access Road and above Tysons Galleria.
- East Side connects Tysons to Pimmit Hills with a residential area.
- Tysons West covers the area around the Spring Hill Metro station.
- Tysons Central 7 surrounds the Greensboro Metro.
- Tysons Central 123 encompasses Tysons Corner Center and Tysons Galleria.
- Tysons East surrounds the McLean Metro station
Tysons Reporter wants to know if these eight districts have the “neighborhood feel” planned for or if they seem more like arbitrary partitions.
