The Boro


A National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) and Landscape Contractors Association (LCA) award-winning project. The Boro is a 17-acre, multi-phase development in the heart of Tysons Corner, VA. The project is just steps from Greensboro Metro, and is home to mixed-use residential, retail, entertainment, and offices as well as a two-acre urban space known as Magnetic Park—all designed to capture the vibrant spirit of a true downtown neighborhood. This multi-level project has been designed to improve Tyson’s walkability and connectivity, demonstrate how the area’s old office parks can be reimagined, and tie it to the city’s storm water management plan.
