Meridian Group Hoping The Boro Will Encourage More Projects Nearby

The new Boro development may change the way people live and work in Tysons — or so developers hope.

The Boro has taken more than five years to design and execute, Caroline Flax, a spokesperson for Meridian Group, told Tysons Reporter, adding that it is designed to be its own neighborhood complete with everything residents could want.

“We hope that by bringing a walkable urban experience to what used to be a solely office environment, other projects in the area will follow suit, which will create an overall better experience for employees and residents alike,” she said.

As the development nears completion, businesses and eaters are beginning to open around the area including Flower Child, Whole Foods and Tropical Smoothie Cafe. Two new apartment complexes also opened in The Boro near the end of September.

Flax didn’t answer Tysons Reporter’s question about how the new Boro development might affect pre-existing businesses and developments around the area, like Pike 7 Plaza where several new businesses have recently opened.

However she did say, “The Boro offers something different with the neighborhood feel we are trying to achieve.”

Flax was unsure how many people the development will draw to the area, but said that she hopes The Boro will become a model for future developments in Tysons.

“By creating this new neighborhood, it will help knit the rest of the community together with improved infrastructure, access to amenities and to more public transit options,” Flax said.
