Bike facilities part of new Tysons developmentToday the Board of Supervisors approved a mixed use development near the new McLean Metro station. The Cityline Partners development, Arbor Row, will include the following bike facilities: "Bike racks, lockers and storage facilities will be provided throughout Arbor Row. CityLine also will build bike lanes on both sides of the street on both Westpark Drive and Westbranch Drive." From the County news release:
Cityline will construct eight new buildings on a 19.4-acre site along the south side of West Park Drive near Tysons Galleria. The plans call for three high-rise residential buildings with up to 1,179 units in total, four office towers, more than 58,000 square feet of retail and an approximately 250-room hotel. Construction could begin on some parts of this six-block development soon since CityLine’s application includes final development plans.
Arbor Row will be walking distance from the future Tysons Corner Metro station. Of the entire project, about 28 percent will be 1/4 to 1/3 mile from this station, and 70 percent will be between 1/3 and 1/2 mile from Metro.
