Food Trucks Facing Tickets In Tysons Again

September 16, 2014

When Fairfax County announced they would be pursuing sensible regulations to allow food truck operation in Tysons last year, it seemed like a brewing problem between local police and permit carrying food truck vendors was avoided. The issue was stirred up again yesterday as several food trucks were told to move on by Fairfax...

Another New Rezoning For McLean Station

Hit Or Miss Day For Tysons Planning Future

September 10, 2014

Yesterday WUSA9 and WAMU885 ran stories about the glut of car parking provided at the McLean station, an issue that the Board of Supervisors has spent inordinate amounts of time trying to negotiate with land owners, at times giving up other bargaining chips to do so.

Greystar Quietly Begins Construction on Second Tysons High Rise

It’s deja vu all over again. It seems like just yesterday Greystar broke ground on the first post-comprehensive plan high rise building in Tysons, Ascent. Thirty months later, and it seems Greystar’s appetite for fanfare remains low, despite their ambitious plans in town. Just like their ground breaking at Ascent, their newest project 1521...

423 Bus Routing Shows Why Ridership Has Dropped

September 3, 2014

August 27, 2014

About 6 months ago Washington Business Journal ran a story about Kettler’s newest project within Tysons, 7915 Jones Branch Drive; a strip of Tysons known best for being home to two Fortune 500 headquarters.

Month 2 of Parkageddon

August 22, 2014
Parkageddon Tysons

It’s time to once again return to the misery that has befallen our little city of Tysons, #parkageddon. For those of you unfamiliar Parkageddon involves the onslaught of the driving hordes searching for hours in town for a parking space because none was provided for the Silver Line metro. Of course, there were 700...

After a one month hiatus on public meetings, the new schedule for the planning commission was posted for September this week. It came as a big surprise that the Greensboro Place project, Meridian’s rezoning at the SAIC headquarters in Tysons, has been deferred again to a new date… this time in Spring of 2015....
