Snow May Disrupt Evening Commute — “The main band of snow is likely to come through during the evening and overnight hours.

Finding a place to live in Tysons can be difficult, even outside of the problems with affordable housing.

Jonathan LaCroix from the Tysons Regional Chamber of Commerce noted that the ratio of jobs to housing units in the area is lopsided, with roughly 100,000 jobs but only 19,000 residents. So for those hoping to live a little closer to where they work the housing market can be scarce and expensive.

To help, Tysons Reporter has put together a list of apartments and condominiums available to rent or buy currently and a look at housing coming down the pipeline over the next few years.

According to apartments.com and other sources, these are the places in Tysons that are available for rent:

Several apartments and condominiums are clumped together at Park Crest just north of Tysons Galleria:

Other existing condo buildings include:

There are several apartment complexes currently in development:

  • Westpark Plaza – Four planned buildings with a planned 1,300 residential units in two of them
  • The Boro – Several mixed-use development buildings — including the “Rise” apartment tower and “Verse” condominium tower — near the Greensboro Metro station
  • The Monarch – A planned luxury condominium building
  • Tysons West Phase III – A planned development hub that will include 669 residential units
  • Residences at Tysons II – A planned pair of 30-story residential towers adjacent to Tysons Galleria
  • Lumen – A 32-story residential tower with 398 apartment units planned for completion by the end of 2018 and open for renting spring 2019.

Apart from the above list in and around central Tysons, there are also a number of other residential options just east of the Beltway with McLean and Falls Church mailing addresses, including but not limited to: Tysons View, Tysons Glen, Eaves Fairfax Towers, the Oaks at Falls Church, PeachTree of McLean, Tysons Landing Apartments, Regency at McLean condos, Encore of McLean condos, the Colonies of McLean condos, the Commons of McLean, the Gates of McLean condos, McLean Chase condosRenaissance 2230 condos, and the Fountain at McLean condos.
