JBG Retail has plans to replace the current Cadillac car dealership with a mixed used project. It will include an office tower, condo/apartment tower, and retail. The project will be built in phases, according to the density increases that the property will receive when a full funding agreement is signed for the Silver Line. The project will be across the street from the Tysons West station.

We reported a month ago that utility relocation – an essential step in rail construction – would begin in December. The outcry over even worst congestion during the holiday season delayed the start again. But now VDOT has announced relocation will begin in early January. We’ll see.

Washington Gas will move it’s gas lines that lay under Route 7’s service roads, and the project will take about four months. Other ulities will move overhead and buried gas lines. Route 7 will stay open during the process, but when unities cut across the road, nigh construction will be used.

The so called Silver Line project will be brought to Wiehle Avenue in 2013, and construction to Dulles Airport will be finished in 2016.
