Tysons Corner Center, located in Tysons Corner, Virginia (part of Fairfax County, near McLean), opened to the public in 1968, becoming one of the first fully enclosed, climate-controlled shopping centers in the greater Washington area. (The fully enclosed Iverson Mall in Marlow Heights, Maryland, opened in 1967).History
Tysons Corner Center was one of the first super-regional malls in the country, drawing customers from a multi-state area. As of 2007, the mall's four department store anchors are Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Lord & Taylor, Macy's; and a recent expansion (opened fall 2005) off the former JCPenney structure is anchored by a 16-screen AMC multiplex movie theater, a Barnes and Noble bookstore, and an Old Navy. Tysons Corner Center is the largest mall in the metropolitan area and the 13th largest in the United States. A second, more upscale mall, called Tysons Galleria, operates across the street from Tysons Corner Center within the Tysons II office development (with many people referring to the mall itself as "Tysons II"); it opened in 1988. To distinguish, many call the original mall "Tysons I."
Until the late 1990s the mall featured a wide and diverse retail mix, ranging from low-end Woolworth's and Hot Shoppes Cafeteria to high-end names like Liz Claiborne. Since then the stores added to the mall have mostly skewed upscale, reflecting the demographics of the surrounding area.
Soon after Tysons Corner Center was constructed, the land surrounding the area ² which had previously consisted of farms, auto dealers, and rural residences ² became prime real estate, prompting the construction of hotels, office buildings, and apartment complexes. Some of the major retailers located in this area are Borders Books & Music, Crate and Barrel, Tiffany & Co., Hermes Paris, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci.
Originally, the mall consisted of 1.2 million square feet (110,000 m²) on one level, three department stores (Hecht's, Lansburgh's, and Woodward & Lothrop), and 100 specialty stores. In 1988, the mall was expanded to add a bottom floor, at which time Lord & Taylor and Nordstrom opened; this was the first Nordstrom east of the Mississippi River. Today, the mall has 2.1 million square feet (195,000 m²) of retail space on three levels, 16 movie screens, and nearly 300 stores. It serves as an entry point for new retail concepts, such as Cusp by Neiman Marcus, MNG by Mango, and Martin + Osa. Apple Inc. also opened the first of its retail stores there in 2001, and L.L.Bean opened its first full-line store outside of its Freeport, Maine, headquarters at Tysons in 2000.Anchors
