On March 14, 2017, the Board of Supervisors approved an amendment to the Tysons PTC Zoning District that eliminated the FAR maximum of 2.5 for certain uses located within a Transit Oriented Development that is up to one fourth a mile from a Metro Rail Station.  All non-office uses are now generally not subject to an FAR limitation and the appropriate density is determined based on site specific guidelines otherwise contained in the Plan.  This amendment provides needed flexibility to help implement evolving mixed use concepts and eliminates what was proving to be a somewhat arbitrary restriction in favor a more appropriate performance based approach with respect to traffic and other impacts.
