A plan to anchor a major Tysons development with a casino is one step closer to becoming a reality.
A bill that would include Fairfax County as one of Virginia’s localities allowed to have a casino passed through a state Senate committee Wednesday.
Although the bill doesn’t stipulate a location for a casino development, the bill’s sponsor, Sen. David Marsden, told FFXnow that it would be intended for 8546 Leesburg Pike, the location of a planned 3M SF mixed-use project from Clemente Development.
That development was approved in 2019 with plans for the region’s tallest tower, but it has been stalled for years as the developer has had difficulty securing office tenants, Bisnow previously reported. It was slated for 1.4M SF of offices, 1.1M SF of residential, a hotel, retail and a black-box theater.
