The Meridian Group has been recognized with three Best of NAIOP Northern Virginia Awards.

The real estate investment and development firm was honored for three of its properties – The Boro, Boro Station and EastBoro – that are helping to transform Tysons, Va.

“We’re honored to be recognized for our efforts to create the Boro District, a vibrant new urban center in the heart of Tysons,” said David Cheek, president of The Meridian Group. “We are creating an amenity-rich community that offers easy access between our sites and the Greensboro Metro station. The Boro District will be an outstanding place to live, work, shop and dine.”
