Silverline Center at Tysons offers parking for metro commuters
Silverline Center in Tysons has a new amenity for Metro Silver Line commuters: parking spaces.
Washington REIT, which just completed a $35 million renovation of the 526,000-square-foot office complex at 7900 Westpark Drive, signed an agreement with Fairfax County last fall to offer 100 parking spaces in its underground garage to Metro commuters. Now that building renovations are complete, the company is telling the public about the parking space availability.
To get out the word, the REIT illuminated the exterior tower of the center with a giant silver “P.”
“We are pleased to provide more commuters with easy access to Metro as Tysons evolves to become a more walkable urban center,” Anthony Chang, senior director at Washington REIT, said in a statement.
Silverline Center is three-tenths of a mile from the Tysons Corner Metro station, or a seven-minute walk. In addition, the Fairfax Connector route 423 bus runs between Silverline Center and the Metro station.
Spaces are available on the P1 level of the seven days a week. Commuters pay $1 for the first hour, $4 for three hours, or a daily maximum of $5. Monthly passes are available for $50.
The garage is located next to the McLean Hilton, about a half mile from Tysons Galleria, with access to the Capital Beltway and Route 123.
Washington REIT is one of two private office property owners near the new Silver Line Metro stations in Tysons to offer interim parking to commuters under agreements with Fairfax County. When Silverline Center is nearly fully leased, commuter parking will no longer be available.
