Located in the northeast portion of Fairfax County, the 230 acre McLean Commercial Revitalization District (CRD) is centered at the intersection of Chain Bridge Road, Dolly Madison Boulevard, and Old Dominion Drive. The CRD is 3-miles from Tysons Corner Urban Center, and approximately 10-miles from both Washington, DC and Bethesda, MD. Its enjoys excellent access and proximity to the Dulles International Airport, Ronald Regan National Airport, I-495, I-95, George Washington Parkway, and the Metrorail Tysons Silver Line stations (opening 2013) connecting Tysons, Reston, Herndon and the Dulles International Airport to the rest of the region.
The Mclean CRD consists of a wide variety of community serving office, retail and business uses bounded by stable residential neighborhoods. Seeking to preserve and enhance the McLean's small town environment while stimulating change, the revitalization concept for McLean centers on the creation of north and south villages to create a unique sense of place, encourage stability of surrounding residential neighborhoods and stimulate opportunities to direct future change that will transform and revitalize the heart of downtown McLean to a lively, community activity center.
