The Sky's the Limit for Washington, D.C.-Area High Rises
"If Fairfax County approves the plans, a skyscraper taller than any in the Chesapeake Bay region could soon rise in Tysons Corner," reports Dan Malouff.
The View at Tysons, as the building would be called, would rise to 48 stories and 615 feet tall. The building would also leave an indelible mark on the cityscape of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The building will be taller 470-foot tall Capital One Tower, currently under construction in Tysons Corner, according to Malouff. The View would also "be 60 feet taller than the Washington Monument, 107 feet taller than Westin Virginia Beach, the current tallest building in Virginia, and 86 feet taller than Baltimore's Transamerica building, the tallest in Maryland."
