Mars Inc.’s McLean headquarters expansion features an environmentally friendly design, public and private amenity spaces, and connections with an adjacent property’s pathways.
The proposed expansion includes the current headquarters building and adjacent property where an existing office building will be razed to make way for improvements. Also included in the proposal is the addition of a publicly accessible outdoor area on the site, which would marry up with similar amenities being planned at the adjacent Astoria development. The 2,000 sf public space will feature a curved pergola. There will be a private landscaped area for employees, which will be dog friendly, as well as an elevated patio area.
