Kaine To Announce New Corporate HQ in Tysons
Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) is expected to announce next week the relocation of Science Applications International Corp.'s corporate headquarters from San Diego to Tysons Corner, several sources said.
Speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of negotiations, several government and business leaders said the move would bring more than 1,000 high-paying jobs to SAIC's existing Tysons operations.
In an interview today, Kaine would say only that he will make a major economic announcement next week.
SAIC, one of the region's largest federal contractors, employs 45,000 around the world, including roughly 16,000 in the Washington region. In Tysons, SAIC occupies a building on Leesburg Pike in front of a future Metro station on the Silver Line, which is under construction from Arlington to Dulles International Airport.
With the addition of so many new employees in Tysons, SAIC could become a cornerstone of planned redevelopment there.
An SAIC spokeswoman did not immediately return phone calls seeking comment.
