Fairfax Square

TYSONS CORNER, VA

Fairfax Square is a three building, mixed-use development located in Tysons Corner, Virginia. The seven-story buildings surround a European-style, cobblestone courtyard, highlighted by a fountain, large central granite planters, and traditional Pennsylvania Avenue-type street lamps. The project consists of 376,000 square feet of first class office space, 90,000 square feet of luxury retail space and an 1,800 space parking garage connected directly to the complex via an enclosed bridge. Skidmore, Owings and Merrill designed Fairfax Square to be architecturally unique and functionally efficient. Each building is clad in flame finished Brazilian granite facades, and interior finishes of cherry wood paneling and Italian marble.

Fairfax Square has attracted a concentration of high-end retailers unrivaled in the Washington, D.C. area, including Tiffany & Company, Hermès of Paris, Gucci, Fendi, and Louis Vuitton. Fine restaurants including Morton’s of Chicago and Chef Geoff’s add after hours life to the complex. Fairfax Square has also been home to such distinguished corporate tenants as AT&T, Ernst & Young, Merrill Lynch and PaineWebber. The architectural quality, classic materials, and careful consideration given to the tenant mix make Fairfax Square a truly unique project in the Washington Metropolitan area.

In addition to office and retail properties, Metropolitan has developed large urban projects for third party clients.

Pictured above is 1500 Broadway located in the heart of Times Square. Metropolitan was contracted to reposition an existing office tower to include a major television and movie studio and incorporate massive changes to the structural steel systems and foundation and add vibrant, colorful signage to the building’s facade on Times Square. The three year project culminated in the tenancy of ABC Studios and the production of signage which tripled the asset’s valuation.

Louis Vuitton, Tysons Corner

TYSONS CORNER, VA

Some of the finest retailers in the world have selected The Fairfax Company, a wholly owned affiliate of Metropolitan, as their General Contractor. Clients such as Tiffany & Co., Louis Vuitton, Saks Fifth Avenue and Mark Cross demand the same level of service from a General Contractor that they are accustomed to providing to their own customers.

The Louis Vuitton store in Tysons Corner illustrates the unique needs of the high-end retailer. In order to open for the Holiday shopping season, the store was constructed on a 24 hour a day schedule allowing completion in only three weeks.

Tiffany & Co., Tysons Corner

TYSONS CORNER, VA

The Tiffany & Co. store at Fairfax Square was its first entry into the Washington, D.C. market and Metropolitan’s first development to incorporate luxury retail. As part of the transaction, Metropolitan was required to compliment the tenancy of Tiffany & Co. with other luxury retailers opening within the same time frame. Metropolitan completed lease negotiations with Hermès of Paris, Gucci, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, and Morton’s of Chicago to become Washington’s first and largest luxury mixed-use development.

The Tiffany & Company store at Fairfax Square is the second largest store after Tiffany & Company’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York. The three building project was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill; and it became the local headquarters for distinguished corporate tenants such as AT&T, Ernst & Young, Merrill Lynch and PaineWebber.
