Tysons Corner is an unincorporated place in Fairfax County, Virginia, near Washington, D.C. between Tysons,
Virginia and Vienna, Virginia along the Capital Beltway (I-495). The community's population was 18,540 as
of the 2000 census. It is home to Tysons Corner Center, a large shopping mall, and to a second, more
upscale mall called Tysons Galleria (Tysons II), which is located on the other side of Virginia
Route 123. As of 2005, Tysons Corner has 25.6 million square feet (2,400,000 m²) of office space and over
4 million square feet (4,000,000 m²) of retail space (largest on the East Coast after New York City),
making it an important business district in its own right and the classic example of an edge city.
Tysons Corner contains one-fourth of all office and hotel space and one-eighth of all retail space in Fairfax County.
To local residents, Tysons Corner is the area around the intersection of State Route 123 (Chain Bridge Road) and State Route 7 (Leesburg Pike), which, as recently as the 1950s, was a quiet rural intersection flanked by a few small stores. Tysons Corner Center, a large shopping mall, is located here, and is often the only reason that nonresidents have heard of Tysons Corner. Tysons Corner also houses many smaller shopping centers (including the Tysons Galleria mall) and a significant number of car dealerships. In recent years, the influx of technology companies into Northern Virginia has brought many new office buildings and hotels to the Tysons Corner landscape.
