NEWS:

Bette Ridgeway has been selected to create the feature artwork for The Boro Building, located in the heart of The Boro, a premier, multi-phase development that brings together a lively community in the heart of northern Virginia.

The tryptych 15 x 21 feet will be installed in January 2019.

Mere steps from the Greensboro Metro Station along the new Silver Line, this 
mixed-use residential, retail, entertainment, and office environment captures the spirit of a true downtown experience in Tysons Corner. From its vantage on “The Hill,” Tysons Corner’s highest ground elevation, The Boro offers unparalleled views and visibility and is uniquely poised to reinvent modern living.

 

The Boro. This vibrant, new live/work/play town concept is being co-developed by The Meridian Group and Rockefeller Group, with Gensler Architects.
