This report focuses on the Dulles Metrorail extension (the Silver Line) in Fairfax County, Virginia and its impacts on demographics, development and the overall real estate market. Fairfax County’s growth as an information technology and government contractor center has warranted an expansion of public transportation. A 2009 report issued by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) indicated that the Dulles and Route 28 Corridors (encompassing such areas as Tysons Corner, McLean, Falls Church, Vienna, Reston, Herndon, Chantilly and parts of Loudoun County) generated 4.0 percent of the metro area’s economy in 1980. At the time of this report, that portion had jumped to 25.0 percent.
