The owners of Tysons Corner Center, already the region's largest mall, are developing a plan that would double its size and move toward transforming the iconic suburban shopping destination into something like a small city.According to documents presented to Fairfax County planning leaders last week, the mall would be ringed by office, residential and hotel mid-rises, essentially increasing the amount of floor space on the property to more than 5 million square feet, or more than twice as much as in the Empire State Building.
