The 383,628 square-foot office building will be located just 35 steps from the entrance to the Greensboro Metro Station, next to The Boro, offering tenants one of the shortest walks to Metro available anywhere on the Silver Line. Gensler designed the 25-story tower with 9′ ceilings and column-free floors typically ranging from 26,000 to 29,000 square feet. A dramatic two-story lobby invites the outdoor visitors inside with feelings of spaciousness and openness. Two elevated terraces on upper portions of the building create beautifully landscaped common and private outdoor spaces for tenants and their guests. USAA Real Estate joined the project last September, viewing its commitment as an early investment into the transformation of Tysons from an office-only business district into a vibrant 24/7 mixed-use urban community.
