The selected operator for 8508-Uncontained recently informed the County that COVID-19 has rendered their RFI proposal infeasible until such time as it is safe to gather again. Concurrently, the County identified several space needs that can be met by use of the building into the second quarter of 2021. The 8508 Steering Committee will consider future opportunities to activate the space; updates or details will be posted at https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/economic-success/activate-fairfax-rfi.
The Department of Economic Initiatives seeks expressions of interest to temporarily transform as an interim use a vacant, county-owned space in Tysons into an economic development destination.
The space is located at 8508 Leesburg Pike which is the former location for Container Store in Tysons.
The goals of the Request for Interest (RFI) are to:
- Promote and support innovation, local entrepreneurs and the small business sector.
- Create vibrant experiences through creative placemaking.
- Feature the Made in Fairfax network and other local producers or makers.
Responses will be accepted through April 20, 2020.
