Satellite services provider Intelsat will relocate its U.S. headquarters to the Tysons Corner area of Fairfax County from its current location in Washington, D.C. The company plans to bring more than 430 employees to the Fairfax County economy when it relocates in mid-2014.

Intelsat will lease approximately 188,000 square feet of space in Tysons Tower, a 20-story office building that is being built by Macerich at Tysons Corner Center, adjacent to the Tysons Corner Metro station. The Metro station is scheduled to open in December 2013.
