As we wrote about earlier this year, Walmart has been “coming to Tysons West in 2013” for a while. Now, the opening date has finally been set – August 14th is the date! The Walmart is next to one of the new metro stop on the Silver Line through Tysons Corner.
The urban style Walmart will be about 78,000 sq/ft. For comparison – the new “urban style” Target in Merrifield is about 163,000 square feet. So, this new Walmart is half the size of that Target – it won’t be a monstrosity by any measure I would say.
The Walmart is part of Phase 1 of the Tysons West development. The area between the Walmart and Rt-7 has been scheduled to be developed as well as part of a Phase 2/3 development.
Developments that will benefit from this development include Fountains at McLean, Rotonda and Westwood Village. All are great communities – please contact us if you would like more information on any of those.
