LMC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lennar Corporation and a leader in apartment development and management, today announced the land closing for Paxton, a luxury mixed-use community in Tysons, a Northern Virginia suburb of Washington, D.C.
The high-rise community will feature 447 apartment homes and offer 14,713 square feet of retail space. First move-ins at Paxton are projected for early 2024.
“Tysons possesses a unique, diverse mix of urban, walkable spaces, with public parks and nature preserves. Paxton will provide well-appointed apartment homes in Tysons close to a variety of dining, entertainment, and transit options,” said Stuart Cain, Vice President of Development of LMC’s DC Metro Office. “Paxton will offer a broad range of apartment types, with spacious floor plans and ample, modern indoor and outdoor amenities and workspaces in a growing urban community.”
Situated at 1750 Chain Bridge Road, Paxton is located in Scotts Run, a one-of-a-kind experiential neighborhood now taking shape in Tysons. When fully built out, Scotts Run will include as much as 6.5 million square feet of mixed-use development. The heart of the project is the Scotts Run stream valley with walking trails and plenty of spaces for relaxation, reflection and connections to nature. Scotts Run is conveniently located near the McLean Metro Station on the Silver Line and is also close to I-495, the I-495 Express Lanes, Route 66 and Route 123. It’s the epitome of urban sensibility.
Pedestrians and recreationalists can access local parks and trails at nearby Scotts Run Nature Preserve, Freedom Hill Park, Great Falls and Carderock Recreational Area.
Paxton will be located within close proximity to several neighborhood attractions, including the McLean Farmer’s Market, Nova Central Farm Market, Capital One Hall, Art Whino Gallery, Kennedy Center, Eagle Bank Arena and McLean Project for the Arts. The area is also home to a variety of dining options, including Eddie V’s Prime Seafood, Seasons 52, The Capital Grill, Founding Fathers, Agora, North Italia, The Palm and Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse.
Nearby sporting venues include Capital One Arena, Nationals Park, FedEx Field, Audi Field and RFK Stadium. Notable employers headquartered in Tysons include Capital One, Gannett Company, Hilton Worldwide, Mitre Corporation and USA Today.
The modern community will offer studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes. Apartment interiors will be appointed with wood plank-style flooring, quartz countertops, under-cabinet lighting, stainless steel appliances, walk-in closets, floor-to-ceiling windows, recessed lighting and additional storage space. Resort-inspired amenities at Paxton will include ample co-working space with a conference room and business center, swimming pool, cabanas and lounge seating, firepits and fireplace, outdoor grills, lounge, entertainment kitchen, club room with a gaming area and billiards table and fully equipped fitness center with weightlifting and cardio machines. Residents will also have access to a seven-story parking garage with electric vehicle charging stations, package lockers, additional storage space and a pet park with a dog grooming room.
