An unincorporated census-designated place located 13 miles west of Washington, DC in Fairfax County, Tysons Corner, or just Tysons, serves as the technology and retail epicenter of Northern Virginia and the Washington Metropolitan Area. Tysons is the archetypal edge city, located at the junctions of I-495 (Capital Beltway), I-66, and the Dulles Toll Road. It boasts over 25 million feet of office space, over 3,500 hotel rooms, and the largest retail area south of New York City on the East Coast. Capital One, Gannett and Freddie Mac are just a few of the Fortune 500 companies headquartered here. Upon the creation of Fairfax County in 1742, Tysons served as the location of the first courthouse at the intersection of Routes 7 and 123. The courthouse remained there until it was moved in 1752 to Alexandria. Tysons Corner Center opened here in 1968 and is now home to over 250 stores. Buildings in Tysons typically have McLean and Vienna addresses.
