Zoning maps have been released by the Tysons Corner Planning group. Dark red indicates a FAR (floor to area ratio) of 3.5 to 5.0. Dark orange/red indicates a far of 3.0. Orange indicates FAR of 2.5. Light orange represents 2.0. Yellow indicates a far below 1.99.

I personally favor option 2, but knowing Fairfax County, they’ll probably present an option #3 that is between numbers 1 and 2. Option number 2 while it looks nice to me and others that believe strongly in transit oriented development and more traditional urban development. But lets face it, option 2 is designed to scare the NIMBYs into taking option #1.
