For Verse Residents, The Boro Shines as Tysons’ Staycation Destination

Allison Chase Sutherland Home & Design, Talk of Tysons

The Boro, Tysons’ exciting new neighborhood, continues to thrive, as residents enjoy its community-inspired design. Enhanced with  a line-up of cleverly conceived  summer events that strive to support local businesses while at the same time keeping people safe. This is one place where staying at home is not just a necessity, but a delight.

Conveniently located at the intersection of Westpark Drive and Greensboro Drive, The Boro is an upscale mixed-use development, anchored by the enormous flagship Whole Foods store, right in the heart of Tysons, VA.  

The Boro offers an eclectic array of restaurants and a variety of services in conjunction with the three residential buildings: luxury apartment living at Rise & Bolden and the exquisite condominiums at Verse. 

The design of The Boro intrinsically provides everything residents desire – without feeling the need to venture far from home. When the project opened in 2019, The Boro already featured pedestrian-friendly streets, green public spaces where residents and visitors could  lounge and play, everyday conveniences, and high-end retailers—all within steps from the Silver Line.   With everything so accessible, there is no need to venture far from home.

“The Boro is doing a great job of allowing life to still happen—safely. Drive-in movies, poke bowls, live music, and outdoor happy hours in the park—and that’s just the beginning…”

However, while The Boro is not immune to the challenges brought by 2020, a combination of creative summer programming and deft handling of Virginia’s phased reopenings and social distancing requirements has allowed residents and visitors to the neighborhood to continue enjoying the energy that comes from smart, community-focused urban design.  

On weekends, Boro Place tranforms into a pedestrian-only zone to accommodate outdoor dining and social distancing. So far this  summer, The Boro has experienced a hugely successful pop-up drive-in movie theater, a community blood drive and free live music on Fridays and Saturdays enjoyed from the restaurant patios of Flower Child, North Italia, Fish Taco, and Poki DC. 

 “The Boro is doing a great job of allowing life to still happen—safely. Drive-in movies, poke bowls, live music, and outdoor happy hours in the park—and that’s just the beginning of how residents here are enjoying their summer,” says Tom Boylan, Senior VP of The Meridian Group, who together with developer partner Kettler, was responsible for bringing the vision of The Boro to reality.   

As we all spend more time at home, homeowners are finding out what type of space is really valuable to them—what really matters. All the homes available at The Boro immerse their residents in an enviable walkable lifestyle; however, with delux amenities, 24/7 concierge services, and one-acre Sky Park, the jewel in The Boro’s crown is Verse.  

“The Boro is sort of this hidden gem in Tysons right now, and Verse is the most luxurious new condo building in the area that you can move into now,” says David Mayhood, President of Mayhood Company, who provides sales and marketing services for The Boro.  

Verse is a private refuge for homeowners searching for tranquility without having to compromise walkable convenience. Whether enjoying epicurean designer kitchens or practicing yoga on the outdoor Zen terrace, residents of the Verse know why The Boro is perhaps the only neighborhood in the area where residents can still have it all.
