Greensboro Place (RZ 2010-PR-022)
Application OverviewArea: 18.33 acres
Status: Under Review
Applicant Name: TMG Solutions Plaza Land
The subject site is currently developed with four office buildings
with structured and surface parking associated with SAIC. Under the
proposed redevelopment, eight new buildings would be added; the three
existing SAIC office buildings closest to Leesburg Pike and the
Greensboro Metro Station would remain. The redevelopment would include
a mix of uses, including office, hotel and residential with supporting
retail. Building heights would range from 125 to 400 feet in
This application is being reviewed in conjunction with RZ 2013-PR-009 (Westpark Plaza). Previously, the land area included within RZ 2013-PR-039 was part of this application; although the two applications have been separated they will be heard concurrently. An FDP has been submitted for Building A, a proposed residential building located at the corner of Westpark Drive and Greensboro Drive.
Major transportation improvements proposed include the creation of several new grid streets, the most significant of which is Park Avenue, running parallel to Greensboro Drive and Leesburg Pike. Park Avenue will be part of a crucial new collector that, in the long term, is intended to extend through the entire north side of Tysons. In addition, Station Place will provide improved access to the Greensboro Metro Station. The Tysons Circulator is accommodated along the Westpark Drive frontage. Discussions regarding contributions toward the Tysons-wide and Tysons Grid of Streets transportation funds are ongoing.
The applicant has proposed to construct an interim sidewalk from Solutions Drive to the Greensboro Metro Station within 18 months of approval of the application (if such can be coordinated with the adjacent landowner). The ultimate design also proposes a pedestrian bridge at-grade with the park promenade located in between the E and F buildings directly into the Metro entry pavilion. This connection would be constructed with Building E2.
The proposed layout includes five on-site parks, including Science Square (located in Block C) and Energy Park (located on the parking structure between Proposed Towers E1 and E2). Discussion regarding athletic fields is ongoing. As part of the redevelopment, the applicant has proposed space to accommodate a new library. Discussions regarding this public facility are ongoing, as are discussions related to LEED standards and stormwater management goals.
