Fairfax County Buys Container Store Site in Tysons for $16 Million

Fairfax County plans to turn a vacant retail building in Tysons into a new grid of streets.

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors bought the site that once housed the Container Store (8508 Leesburg Pike) from a JBG affiliate for $16.6M, the Washington Business Journal reported.

The county plans to add a new street that would connect Leesburg Pike and Greensboro Drive, according to the story.

The site sits across from Embassy Suites by Hilton and Ruth’s Chris Steak House by the Spring Hill Metro station.

The Container Store relocated from 8508 Leesburg Pike to 8459 Leesburg Pike near the Best Buy last October.
