A new mixed-use development is heading to Tysons, Virginia. 

The 420-unit residential and commerical space called Hanover Tysons has been unanimously approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. The project includes retail space, as well as affordable housing units, and a 1.3 acre public park. The development will replace a vacant 7-story office building that was built in 1983. 

“It has pretty much everything we’re looking for in Tysons. It has residential which we’re attracting, it has recreational, it’s mixed-use, it’s walkable and all around a good application,” Sharon Bulova, Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors said. 

If adjacent land becomes available, board members say, the park will be expanded to also include an athletic field.
