Fairfax Square is an upscale mixed-use development located directly south of Tysons Corner Center across Leesburg Pike in Tysons Corner, Virginia. It includes 400,000 sq ft (37,160 m2) of Class A office space, primarily occupied by financial tenants such as American Express, Merrill Lynch, and New York Life, and high-end ground-floor retail among its three identical high-rises. Fairfax Square was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Its buildings are clad in Brazilian granite, and its lobbies are finished with Italian marble and wood paneling.[1] Ground was broken for the development in 1988.

When it opened in 1990, the Tiffany & Co. store at Fairfax Square was the largest outside of New York with 14,500 sq ft (1,350 m2) of retail space.[2] Hermès has its only Washington metropolitan area store in Fairfax Square and doubled its retail space after a reopening in 2006 due to store consistently outperforming the rest of the U.S. market.[3][4] The Tiffany and Gucci stores in this location are twice as large as their newer counterparts in nearby Wisconsin Avenue.[5][6][7] Fendi opened its fourth store in the nation at Fairfax Square but it has closed, and they currently have no fashion boutiques in the metropolitan area.[8] Fendi however has a Fendi Casa showroom nearby in Washington. The Equinox fitness facility replaced an 8-screen movie theater, which closed in 2007, shortly after a 16-screen theater opened in Tysons Corner Center.

The following stores are located in Fairfax Square:

This location should not be confused with another older development, also named Fairfax Square, located in the City of Fairfax and consisting of a small amount of office and retail space.
