The site on Jones Branch Drive in Tysons currently home to Hilton Hotel’s world headquarters is the subject of a recent rezoning filed by property owner Bethesda-based BF Saul Company.
Saul’s Tysons Park Inc. and Tysons Park Place II LLC are asking to rezone the two parcels – totaling 7.64 acres – from the C-4, High Intensity Office, to the PTC, Planned Tysons Corner Urban, district to permit, in phases, redevelopment of the prime site (tax map 029-4-07-005B and -005C).
The Providence district property, on the east side of Jones Branch Drive, is book-ended on the south by the Hilton McLean hotel and on the north by the Jones Branch Connector (which will bridge the Beltway and provide a connection to the McLean Metro station on Route 123, within a half-mile of the property).
Two 11-story office buildings – including the 311,600-square foot, 147-foot tall Hilton headquarters building at 7930 Jones Branch – and an above-grade parking garage backing up to the ramps onto I-495 occupy the rectangular-shaped site.
According to the rezoning statement filed on behalf of the applicant by attorney Mark Viani (Bean Kinney & Korman, PC) the applicant has no immediate plans to redevelop the fully-leased, 10-year old building at 7930, but instead is focusing on replacing the “functionally obsolete” Park Place I building at 7926 Jones Branch built in 1975.
