The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors last Tuesday unanimously approved The Boro, a 4.2 million-square-foot development by the Greensboro Metro station that will feature the region’s largest Whole Foods, a six-story Showplace Icon multiplex, multiple multifamily and office buildings and a couple of parks.
Metro’s Office of Planning has been exploring why certain station areas and rail segments have seen ridership gains during the downturn, while other station areas and segments have seen losses.
