Welcome to Tysons Corner
Tysons Corner is located between the community of McLean and the town of Vienna along the Capital Beltway (I-495). Home to two major shopping malls - Tysons Corner Center and Tysons Galleria - and the corporate headquarters of numerous companies Tysons is Fairfax County's central business district and a regional commercial center. It has been characterized as a quintessential example of an edge city. Among the reasons for calling Tysons Corner an edge city is that in contrast to typical "bedroom" suburbs people coummute into it in the morning and away from it at night with a daytime population greater than 100000 and a nighttime population of fewer than 20000. Planners envision up to 200000 jobs and 100000 residents in coming decades.
