The tallest building on the boards for the DC area received a key approval yesterday. 

The Fairfax Board of Supervisors unanimously approved The View at Tysons on Tuesday, a massive six-building project with upwards of three million square feet near the Spring Hill Metro station in Tysons Corner. The overall development will include two residential buildings with retail, one hotel and residential building, and three office buildings.

The focal point of the development, however, will be the Iconic Tower, an office building rising 600 feet with an observation deck. While the lower 400 feet of the building will be occupied by office space, the upper 200 feet will be an unoccupied, making for a purely architectural element of the structure.

"The Iconic, the tallest building between Philadelphia and Charlotte, will be visible as a signature element of the region’s skyline and will feature expansive views from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the National Cathedral and Washington Monument," the development website reads. 

The first phase of The View at Tysons is expected to break ground next spring.
