Leading companies and firms sign leases for over 60,000 square feet at the premier trophy office tower in Tysons, Va.
BETHESDA, Md. (June 8, 2022) — The Meridian Group and Rockefeller Group announced today that five prominent companies and firms are opening offices at Boro Tower, the iconic trophy office tower in Tysons, Va.
The marquee new tenants include a commercial real estate firm, a cloud-led software company and a telecommunications law firm. In addition, a current tenant is expanding its presence there.
Together, they’ll lease a combined 62,034 square feet (sf) at the tower located in the heart of The Boro, Meridian’s popular development featuring an engaging mix of office, residential, retail, entertainment and open park space.
“We are proud to welcome five more prestigious companies and firms to Boro Tower,” said Katie Yanushonis, Senior Vice President of The Meridian Group. “As the premier office building in Tysons, Boro Tower is now the world-class home to a variety of top organizations, companies and firms, and we could not be happier.”

Meridian and Rockefeller Group co-developed the Gensler-designed, 440,000-square-foot office tower at 8350 Broad Street in Tysons, Va. The trophy building is now 95% percent leased, with about 20,000 sf of office space remaining.
Working with The Meridian Group and the Rockefeller Group to lease Boro Tower is a CBRE team of Terry Reiley, Brett Schweitzer, Rosanne Richards and Quinn Reiley.
From its vantage from the highest ground elevation in Fairfax County, Boro Tower offers panoramic views from the Blue Ridge Mountains to downtown Washington. The 20-story building, which has achieved LEED Gold certification, features a shimmering glass curtain wall, accented by a modern, white-glazed terra cotta.
Situated next to Boro Park, the Tower offers 9-foot ceilings and ideally sized, efficient floorplates that minimize columns and maximize daylight and views. Tenants enjoy numerous amenities, including a rooftop terrace, spacious lobby, fitness center, locker rooms, bicycle storage and ample parking.
The new tenants join a number of well-known companies, organizations and firms that have selected Boro Tower for their new offices. They include KPMG, one of the world’s Big Four accounting firms; TEGNA, comprised of a dynamic portfolio of media and digital businesses; and prominent law firms Hogan Lovells and Womble Bond Dickinson.
Boro Tower rises high above The Boro, a 15-acre development located within steps of the Greensboro Metro station. Conveniently located near Route 7, Route 123 and Greensboro Drive, The Boro is designed to bring people outside — with pedestrian-friendly roadways, beautiful open spaces and a host of restaurants with ample outdoor seating.
The development also offers a flagship Whole Foods Market store as well as one of the area’s best cinemas — Kerasotes ShowPlace ICON Theatres.
“It’s great to see so many people outside enjoying all that The Boro has to offer,” Yanushonis said. “A walkable community — filled with restaurants, stores, entertainment and open spaces — is needed now more than ever.”
