Nouvelle Apartments (Arbor Row Redevelopment)

The Nouvelle tower in Tysons Corner is just one of the many residential towers that have been rising since the debut of the Silver Line last July. Located at the intersection of West Park Drive and Jones Branch Drive, it sits roughly a quarter of a mile from the Tysons Corner Metro Station. While the cladding and interior of the building still have a ways to go, the building has already topped out at 26 floors and its presence on the Tysons' skyline is already being felt. The building will feature 461 units and 6,588 square feet of retail.

The tower is part of the larger Arbor Row development that covers 19.4 acres along Westpark Drive. Currently, all the buildings on the property are 1970's office buildings many of which have been sitting vacant. At full build out the Arbor Row development will feature up to eight new buildings ranging from 120-300ft in height. The 2.5 million square feet of new development will be divided by 1.1 million square feet of office, 1.2 million of residential, 162,000 square feet of hotel and 58,656 square feet of retail.

Additionally, the Fairfax County web page states that "a large urban plaza is planned to be integrated into the development to create a focal point within the neighborhood". Also, the developer has dedicated an off site 8 acre parcel on Jones Branch Drive to the County for athletic fields and a future public elementary school.

Due to the topography of the site, the 26 floor building appears to stand even with the 18 floor office building currently being constructed next door by Lerner Enterprises. That building is being branded as 1775 Tysons Boulevard. Completion of both buildings will occur in early 2016.
