As we wrote about last year, Walmart is coming to Tysons West in 2013. It is next to the new metro stop on the Silver Line through Tysons Corner. There is no exact date for the opening of the Walmart – deliveries for office locations have been indicated to be early 2013 so hopefully by the summer.
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 – not a monstrosity by any measure.
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.
