Description: Tysons Corner area experienced massive development in the past decade. One of the projects opened in 2018 is our stunning Commons at Maclean. The project has an exceptional location just a few steps from silver metro line, Tysons Corner Center, and Tysons Galleria. Commons have unique amenities such as resort-style pool, courtyard with grilling and dining areas, rooftop lounge and gardens, golf simulator, professionally designed fitness center, and two-story sky bridge with fully equipped catering kitchen. Meeting requirements for roof space, extensive amenities, LEED Gold standards, and green roof was the most challenging part of the project. Metropolitan Engineering provided a thoughtful design of VRF systems, central hot water heating systems, and electrical systems that met all these requirements.
