The more than 1,600 two-toned, gray and buff medium acid-washed panels not only contribute to the project’s durability, but they also make the 31-story building visually appealing.
Owned by top retail property owner and developer Macerich, Tysons Corner Center project includes a 429,000-square-foot multi-unit apartment building, a rooftop pool, amenity areas, retail space, a pedestrian bridge (connecting to the Tysons Corner WMATA station), and four levels of below-grade parking.
