Great Outdoor Spaces

Outdoor Aerie
An extensive design by Fine Landscapes enhances the new Tysons Financial Institution Headquarters Campus.

This award-winning urban mixed-use landscape encompasses two ground-level public parks with entry designs for existing and proposed buildings, plus specialized bio-retention planters for storm water management, outdoor terraces on the sixth and seventh floors and extensive green roofs.

The park areas include an amphitheater with a sail canopy and granite seat walls; a synthetic turf panel; and raised fountains for sound attenuation. Walkways are made of concrete pavers in varying colors and specialty soils, plantings, irrigation and site furnishings have been installed.

The design accommodates a large outdoor dining space with canopy. The main entrance features a monumental sculpture and radial paving patterns that complement the curvature of the building. Native and adapted plants provide four-season interest and storm-water management.

  • Two public parks boast an amphitheater, water features, art sculptures, native and adapted plantings and bio-retention planters
  • Multiple rooftop terraces showcase native plantings, art sculptures, firepits and lounge and dining areas
  • About 40,000 square feet of vegetated roof area collects and filters storm water
