On April 7, 2015, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved a special exception request to construct the new Marriott Residence Inn in the Tysons Corner area. Working closely with the applicant (7799 Leesburg Pike, LLLP) and County staff, Shareholder Evan Pritchard secured zoning approval for the 10-story, LEED-Silver Certified designed building. The new hotel will be constructed on top of what is now an underutilized surface parking lot at the intersection of Leesburg Pike and Ramada Road. Shuttle service to nearby shopping and Metro stations will be provided for guests to help reduce the effect of traffic on the area. The project has been carefully designed with several important low-impact development features to retain storm water onsite and minimize the project’s effect on area streams, thereby achieving a major environmental goal the County has set for new development in Tysons. Improved landscaping will dramatically increase the number of trees on the site. New sidewalks and an on-street bike lane will further enhance both the appearance and accessibility of the area for pedestrians and cyclists.
