Tysons Corner residents upset over Spring Hill Station development
A handful of residents in Tysons Corner are up-in-arms because they say developers are pressuring them to move from their homes to make room for playing fields.
The residents are caught up in a move to redevelop Spring Hill Station. The developer for the project, The Georgelas Group, agreed to buy 2.8 acres of land around Raglan Road Park so residents will have a sports field, according to the Fairfax Times.
The county can use eminent domain if The Georgelas Group can’t reach agreements with the residents.
But some residents say they aren’t being offered a fair price for their homes. One woman told the Fairfax Times that the developer offered $100,000 less than she was offered.
The Georgelas Group couldn't be reached for comment.,
