The plan to construct a “smart city” in Ashburn has expanded by 8.2 acres, thanks to a new partnership with 22 City Link and Ashburn 2005. Bisnow reported that this new section is expected to open a year before the rest of the 16-acre development.

The addition will be named “Gramercy West.” Here, there will be a mixed-use project with office and retail space as well as a parking structure. The delivery is slated for late 2018.

According to Bisnow, the 16-acre site will total 2.5 million square feet of mixed-use space with three multi-family buildings, a 350,000-square-foot office building, and 150,000 square feet of retail.

Partners of the project include George Washington University, the Center for Innovative Technology, FedBid, and Microsoft.
