In the last 10 years there has been an explosion of technology, telecommunications and software companies moving into the Northern Virginia area, hence the reference “The Northern Virginia Technology Corridor.” Downtown McLean can be found at the crossroads of Old Dominion Drive (Rt. 309) and Chain Bridge Road (Rt. 123). This is a central location around which many highly regarded subdivisions have been planned and developed. Various communities include McLean Hills, McLean Crest, McLean Chase, Evermay, Balls Hill, Chesterbrook, Evans Farm, Potomac Hills, West Langley, Woodside Estate and The Reserve.
