Plans for ‘One Tysons East’ Heading to Board of Supervisors This Month

A rezoning request for a proposed office tower near the McLean Metro station will be considered by the Board of Supervisors later this month.

Akridge and the Ronald D. Paul Companies are looking to develop 1690 Old Meadow Road, a triangular spot between Dolley Madison Blvd and the Old Meadow Road, into a 15-story tower with Class A offices.

Called One Tysons East, the project would include a 8,300-square-foot restaurant and cafe on the main level, along with retail space and a bike room, according to the website.

The project plans for five levels of parking with 500 spaces — two levels of parking would be underground, while three would be above the lobby. Above the parking, the tower would have 11 floors of office space totaling 24,500 square feet.

The tower also plans to have a landscaped outdoor terrace with a bocce court on the fifth floor, which would also include a client-only cafe, coffee bar, conference room, fitness center and yoga space.

The developers are looking to increase the floor area ratio and receive approval for their plans.

The Planning Commission recommended approval for the rezoning last April after discussion on how the distinctive curved-glass tower could potentially kill birds.

Now, county documents indicate that the Board of Supervisors will hold a hearing on March 24.
