The architecture consulting firm that helped design Capital One Center’s baseball stadium now has a base of its own in Tysons.

Little Diversified Architectural Consulting moved into a new office in Pinnacle Towers (1753 Pinnacle Drive) at the end of February, a spokesperson for the national company announced on Feb. 29.

Located in Suite 1100, the 7,500-square-foot space is hosting the firm’s 37 D.C.-area workers, who were previously split between offices in Arlington and Sterling.

“This move marks a significant milestone, allowing our growing team to collaborate more closely, innovate together, and better serve our clients,” Little marketing and business development manager Lillian Parker said.

Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, where it was founded in 1964, Little now has more than 400 employees across five offices in the U.S., including ones in California, Florida and a second North Carolina location in Durham.

The company’s D.C. area office was located at 4245 Fairfax Drive in Arlington, but then, it acquired the Sterling-based firm Hughes Group Architects in May 2023. The new Tysons office is roughly 500 square feet smaller than the Arlington space, according to Parker.

Little provides architecture, site design, planning, marketing and engineering services. Its projects in Fairfax County have included Capital One Park, which kicked off its second season last month, and Herndon High School, according to its website.

Little’s arrival comes at an uncertain time for the office market in Tysons. A market study released last year by the Tysons Community Alliance found that foot traffic remained below pre-pandemic levels, and vacancy rates had climbed to 20% in 2023.

In mid-February, one of the area’s most prominent tenants, the media publisher Gannett, moved out of its longtime headquarters at Valo Park, announcing that it will relocate its corporate base to New York City while maintaining a D.C. news bureau for USA Today.

Though not in Tysons, another design firm — Land Design Consultants — announced last fall that it would open a second Northern Virginia office in Dunn Loring. About 20 employees were expected to move into the 4,000-square-foot space this past January.
