Construction is underway to expand The Boro in Tysons

Where the National Automobile Dealers Association’s headquarters once stood, there is now only dirt.

Demolition of the former NADA building at 8400 Westpark Drive in Tysons is complete, and construction is underway to expand The Boro to the north side of Westpark Drive near the Greensboro Metro station.

So far, work has concentrated on “Block J” of the mixed-use development’s expansion, according to Tanya Graves, senior vice president of marketing & tenant services at The Boro.

That block consists of The Trillium, the 16-story, 198-room continuing care facility from Silverstone Senior Living. Planned amenities include a cafe, lounge and restaurant and a first-floor wellness center with exercise equipment, yoga studios, a day spa, and salon, according to Silverstone.

Construction has also commenced on the adjacent portion of Allsboro Park, a publicly accessible park proposed to connect Greensboro Drive with a not-yet-built extension of Broad Street.

Delivery of The Trillium and that portion of Allsboro Park are expected in mid-2024, Graves says.

The former NADA building’s demolition started at the end of August, and The Meridian Group, the developer behind The Boro, obtained the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors’ approval of its expansion plans on Nov. 9.

In addition to the senior living facility, the 1.1 million square feet of approved housing, retail, and other amenities will include:

  • Blocks I and K: residential buildings with 122 and 421 units, respectively, and approximately 34,000 square feet of retail, joined by a glass bridge over Boro Place
  • Block L: a 145,000-square-foot health club or 42 townhouses with a central green space

A plan for the residential buildings have been under review by Fairfax County since early 2021. It’s scheduled to go before the county’s planning commission for a public hearing on May 11.

“The entitlement process for the residential projects on Blocks I and K is ongoing with construction commencement anticipated for later this year,” Graves said.

While no plans have been submitted for Block L yet, leaving open the question of whether it will be a health club or townhouses, Graves says earthwork, utilities, roads and utility infrastructure for the full, 9.37-acre expansion site are set to be completed by mid-2023.
