Poll: What Do You Think of Tysons’ Eight Districts?

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.

What about the names? Do you like them?
