The skyline around Tysons Corner is not the only thing changing as Metro’s Silver Line moves closer to reality. The owner of Tysons Corner Center is busy adding new attractions as well.
Zara, the clothing and accessory shop, plans to open a massive two-story, 21,000-square-foot store in the mall, according to Macerich, the mall’s owner. The store should be open by September or October. Zara has two stores in the District and another in Bethesda, but none in Northern Virginia.
Shake Shack is also arriving, Macerich said. The New York-based chain is one of several burger restaurants aggressively expanding in the Washington area, having already added stores locations in Penn Quarter and Dupont Circle in the District. It’s slated to open in July.
Both of the new stores will be served by a 55,000-square-foot plaza being built to connect the mall to the Tysons Corner Silver Line station. More on that later.
