The newly completed Silver Line begins at the Largo Town Center stop in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, and runs alongside the Blue and Orange Lines until splitting off from the Orange Line at the East Falls Church stop in Falls Church, Virginia. With 11 stops planned, only 5 along the Dulles Access Road have been completed so far, beginning with the McLean stop, and moving on to Tysons Corner, Greensboro, Spring Hill, and Wiehle-Reston East.

The Tysons Corner stop is located at 1943 Chain Bridge Road. Placed at the intersection of State Route 123 and Tysons Boulevard, this station, although one of four within the Tysons area, is considered the main Tysons stop. Within walking distance of both Tysons Corner Center and Tysons Galleria, this stop brings you right to the center of Tysons. The housing in this area is all located a few blocks away from the metro station, due to the massive amount of stores and restaurants surrounding the station, the location is still incredibly convenient.

The Tysons Court Townhomes are located a few blocks away, and range from 1,500 square feet to 2,700 square feet. With 3 to 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, these town homes also come with a fire place, a deck, a fenced in yard, and a mostly brick exterior.
The Spring Hill stop is located just up Route 7 from the Greensboro Station at 1576 Spring Hill Road. Nearby housing consists mostly of high quality condominiums, perfect for the young professional.

The Wiehle-Reston East Station is the last completed stop on the Silver Line, and is located at 1862 Wiehle Avenue. The station rests in the median of Route 267, more commonly referred to as the Dulles Toll Road, and has two main entrances on either side of 267. The Leeds Castle Apartments, located just a few streets away, average around 1,500 square feet and have 2 bedrooms and 2-2.5 bathrooms. These condos are located within a gated community, and also come with a balcony, walk-out patio, and access to the pool and fitness center.
