Lennar Multifamily Communities (LMC), the apartment development and operations arm of No. 2-ranked BUILDER 100 home builder Lennar Corp., has broken ground on Lumen at Tysons, a multifamily development located on the edge of the Washington, D.C., metro area in Tysons Corner, Va.

This mixed-use property, located next to the Greensboro Metro station in the “epicenter” of Tysons, will stand as both the tallest building and the highest elevation in Fairfax County, Va., once completed. The site is set to include 398 apartment units and 11,000 square feet of ground-level retail space across 32 stories. The residential spaces will feature high-end appliances and finishes, arranged in collaboration with Faulkner Design.

In addition to the development’s proximity to the Metro, the Tysons area provides potential residents with access to employment, small businesses, fine dining, and the Tysons Corner and Tysons Galleria shopping centers. Major employers headquartered in Tysons include Booz Allen, Capital One, Freddie Mac, Intelstat, Hilton Worldwide, and many more. Tysons Corner and Tysons Galleria include Apple, Coach, Gucci, Nordstrom, Macy’s, and Louis Vuitton high-end outlet stores, among other local and national businesses.

"Lumen at Tysons will offer a suite of unparalleled amenities on multiple levels throughout the high-rise, creating both a visual aesthetic and a true cutting-edge experience for our residents," said Stuart Cain, LMC's vice president of development for the Mid-Atlantic Northeast, during the October groundbreaking for Lumen at Tysons. "We believe the thoughtful design, combined with the LMC's hospitality-driven services, will make the community the finest in the surrounding area and one with long-term, sustainable value."

LMC has set an early estimated move-in time of fall 2018 for the community, which will be built in conjunction with TENGA Construction, also headquartered in the area. The community’s retail tenants have not yet been determined.
