Around The Corner

October 16, 2014

VDOT continues to push for a widening of Route 123, not in Vienna where it’s 4 lanes, not in McLean where it’s 4 lanes, but here in Tysons where the 6 lanes that currently exist don’t even have any congestion on them. Any traffic engineer who has ever been to Tysons (I doubt any...

October 14, 2014

It’s not the pedestrian solution to walkability most North Tysons residents have been hoping for, but it is a start at least. The Ovation apartment park (and walkway) connecting Park Crest with sidewalks along Westpark Drive is complete and looking pretty good.

Fall Construction Updates From MITRE Building 4

October 1, 2014

The last time we visited the new office building under construction within MITRE’s growing Tysons campus the future 14-story structure wasn’t much more than an excavated pit for the underground parking garage.

Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival a Success

September 22, 2014

The line at Porkus Maximus was about as much proof as you needed that combining good drinks with spit fired and smoked barbecue is going to be popular, especially when there’s metro access running (finally).
