Countless apartments and condominiums have begun popping up near the ever expanding Silver Line, but there’s no need to wait: current rental options, luxury included, are both gorgeous and affordable. Spacious one bedroom apartments can start as low as $1,300 per month and two bedrooms hover just around the $1,600 mark. Leases vary from building to building, but with good credit, proof of employment and a willingness to pay a little extra for pet friendly apartments, new residents shouldn’t have an issue.
Presently, Tysons Corner is 4.9 square miles and bordered by the Virginia suburbs of McLean, Pimmit Hills, Idylwood and Vienna, among others. So while the city maintains a compact feel, the options nearby are abundant. Fixtures like Wolf Trap National Park are just a few miles to the west and provide residents with some of the best theatrical and musical performances in the country. Plus, big things are in store for Tysons’ future: by 2050, city planners will have transformed it into a proper, flourishing downtown area modeled after the city of Chicago—a plan which will double the current city limits. It also means that for the city’s projected 100,000 residents, there will be 200,000 available jobs; fantastic news given that the median household income for Tysons Corner is $103,000—and over $140,000 for families.
Tysons is serviced by the D.C. Metro’s Silver Line, the newest addition to the city’s subway system which will eventually let riders reach Dulles Airport. There’s also a great bus system that moves residents quickly and efficiently through the surrounding suburbs. But, overall, Tysons is far more conducive to cars than a city like New York, where the very idea of driving is absurd.
Those in the know on shopping, industry and luxury will fall instantly in love with Tysons Corner. Few other cities in the country are growing as rapidly, and even fewer are growing into such vibrant, cultural attractions. While Tysons Corner is a nice step away from the breakneck pace of D.C., it’s a far and exciting cry from your parents’ suburbs.
