Fairfax County, Virginia USA – Governor Terry McAuliffe announced today that EY (formerly Ernst & Young LLP), one of the world’s leaders in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services and one of Fairfax County’s largest employers, will create 462 jobs over three years as it expands its operations in Fairfax County. Virginia successfully competed against Maryland and Washington, D.C., for the project.
EY is the first major tenant announced for 1775 Tysons Boulevard, which is part of the Corporate Office Centre at Tysons II in Tysons Corner. The company will invest about $12 million as it relocates its offices to 125,000 square feet of space in that building, which is being constructed adjacent to the Tysons Corner stop on Metro’s Silver Line and will accommodate EY’s current needs and plans for growth.
“We are elated that EY selected Fairfax County as the location for its expansion,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA). “We know that a company of this stature has many options in the region and beyond. It is renowned as a progressive company and has been an extremely good corporate citizen in the county. As it continues its expansion, adding great jobs to the Fairfax County economy, it also will further accelerate the evolution of Tysons Corner as a major center of business.”
