Fairfax Square

Coordinates: 38°54′44.9″N 77°13′26.5″W / 38.912472°N 77.224028°W / 38.912472; -77.224028 Fairfax Square is an upscale mixed-use development located directly south of Tysons Corner Center across Leesburg Pike in Tysons Corner, Virginia. It includes 400,000 sq ft (37,160 m2) of Class A office space, primarily occupied by financial tenants such as American Express, Merrill Lynch, and New York Life, and high-end ground-floor retail among its three identical high-rises. Fairfax Square was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Its buildings are clad in Brazilian granite, and its lobbies are finished with Italian marble and wood paneling.[1] Ground was broken for the development in 1988.

When it opened in 1990, the Tiffany & Co. store at Fairfax Square was the largest outside of New York with 14,500 sq ft (1,350 m2) of retail space.[2] Hermès has its only Washington metropolitan area store in Fairfax Square and doubled its retail space after a reopening in 2006 due to store consistently outperforming the rest of the U.S. market.[3] The Tiffany store in this location is twice as large as its newer counterpart on Wisconsin Avenue.[4][5][6] Fendi opened its fourth store in the nation at Fairfax Square but it has closed, and it currently has no fashion boutiques in the metropolitan area.[7] Fendi does, however, have a Fendi Casa showroom nearby in Washington. The Equinox fitness facility replaced an 8-screen movie theater, which closed in 2007, shortly after a 16-screen theater opened in Tysons Corner Center.

The following stores are located in Fairfax Square:

This location should not be confused with another older development, also named Fairfax Square, located in the City of Fairfax and consisting of a small amount of office and retail space.
