In central Tysons, VA, Gensler’s Washington D.C. office has designed a mixed-use building that will house a fitness center, conference spaces, and offices.

The latter will sit atop a nine-story, perforated metal-skinned podium that hosts a parking garage. The tactful metal facade bridges the two glass skins above and below it, mediating transparency in the process.

At street level, glass fenestration encloses 25,000-square-feet of retail, amid other amenities—a bonus for shoppers stepping off the Greensboro Metro station which is a mere 50 yards away. Duncan Lyons, a senior associate at Gensler’s D.C. office, said the building’s design is “unique” for a mixed-use project and is “dynamic, yet flexible enough to attract a variety of tenants.”
