Community Center in Tysons (at The Exchange at Spring Hill Station)

The Exchange at Spring Hill Station (formerly Dominion Square West) will soon become the largest fully committed affordable housing community in Tysons with more than 500 affordable rental homes for residents earning 60 percent or less of Area Median Income. This affordable housing community will be designed, built, owned, and operated by APAH in coordination with the owners of the land – the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority. In addition to providing essential workforce housing in one of the area’s largest urban centers with easy access to mass transit and employment opportunities, The Exchange at Spring Hill Station will also incorporate a 30,000 square-foot community center on the site. Once completed, the community center, and its recreational programs, services, and resources, will be managed by the Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services.


Project Scope and Site

The Tysons Community Center will be a 30,000-square-foot facility and serve as a multi-generational facility for the surrounding communities. It will be part of the Exchange at Spring Hill Station development and reside just a few blocks away from the Spring Hill Metro station in Tysons. The two-acre parcel where the development will be constructed will be purchased by the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) that will lease the property to APAH for the development, construction, ownership, and operation of the affordable housing community.

  • The 30,000-square-foot community center will be located in the Exchange at Spring Hill Station apartment community.
  • The community center will serve the entire community, not just residents of the Exchange at Spring Hill Station
  • The community center will be designed and constructed by Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH) in consultation with the Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES).
  • Once complete, the community center will be owned by Fairfax County and operated by the Department of Neighborhood and Community Services (NCS).
  • The below renderings outline the footprint for the community center within the apartment development.  While the overall footprint and some features are fixed, feedback from the community will help shape and define spaces within that footprint.

Public Participation in the Design/Construction Process

Fairfax County Community Centers are multi-service facilities that serve the needs of individuals of all ages and abilities throughout Fairfax County. To that end, county staff is seeking public input to ensure that the new facility is designed to meet the needs and interests of the surrounding community. Multiple community engagement sessions will be offered to allow for community involvement throughout the process and discussion everything from construction logistics, amenities and curb appeal to the programming and activities desired at the location.
