Lumen Helps Shape Tysons Skyline

Analiese Kreutzer Around Town

As the redevelopment of Tysons continues, there are plenty of changes to see on the street level. But, lately, another change is taking place. Driving toward Tysons from the west, a skyline has started to emerge, giving the area a distinct presence that it hasn’t had before.

One building making an impact on the view is Lumen at Tysons. Located near the former site of Clyde’s at the intersection of Routes 7 and 123, Lumen occupies one of the highest points in the Washington Metro area and will be one of the tallest buildings in all of Virginia

The 32-story, mixed-use luxury apartment community sits adjacent to the Greensboro Metro Station. Its 398 apartments will occupy 25 floors. Penthouse units on the top three floors will enjoy views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and DC. Below the apartments will be ground-level retail and above- and below-ground parking.

Lumen will incorporate three two-story green outdoor living spaces on the 6th, 15th and 23rd floors. The building’s amenities will include a fitness center, rooftop pool, patio terrace, fireplace area, and club lounge.

Lumen expects its first residents will be able to move in in the spring of 2019. For more information, visit
