Tysons, Virginia, January 24, 2014 - Lerner Enterprises, one of Washington, D.C.’s largest private real estate developers, has begun vertical construction of 1775 Tysons Boulevard, an 18-story state-of-the-art office tower in The Corporate Office Centre at Tysons II in Tysons, Virginia. The 476,000-square foot, Class ‘A’ office tower will deliver in late 2015. The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company of Chantilly, Virginia is the general contractor for the project.
“We are excited to begin construction of 1775 Tysons Boulevard, as the iconic building symbolizes the new urban landscape of Tysons, Virginia,” stated Mark D. Lerner, a principal of Lerner. “With the upcoming opening of the new Tysons Corner Silver Line Metro Station, we have received an elevated level of interest in our newest project within The Corporate Office Centre at Tysons II,” he added.
Designed by the internationally acclaimed architectural firm of Kohn Pederson Fox Associates of New York (KPF.com), 1775 Tysons Boulevard will be located a block from the new Tysons Corner Metro Station that is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2014. The building will be connected via a climate controlled skywalk bridge over Tysons Boulevard that provides connectivity to the entire Tysons II development including The Corporate Office Centre at Tysons II; Tysons Galleria, Washington’s premier luxury shopping and dining destination; and The Ritz-Carlton Hotel • Tysons Corner.
The building will be one of the most modern work places in Northern Virginia and in the Tysons district. The green building standards will provide healthy indoor and outdoor environments to tenants while conserving natural resources and energy. The state-of-the-art office tower is registered with the certification goal of LEED® Platinum – the first building within Tysons planned to do so.
