Tysons Corner Land Use Task Force Recommendations
During the next 40 years, Tysons Corner could change from a suburban office park into a livable urban center. The Tysons Land Use Task Force was charged with updating the area’s land use plan within existing boundaries because four new Metrorail stations are expected to be built.
