Springfield

Springfield is a census-designated place (CDP) in Fairfax County, Virginia, United States. Homes and businesses in bordering CDPs including North Springfield, West Springfield, and Newington are usually given a “Springfield” mailing address. The population of the collective areas with Springfield addresses is estimated to exceed 100,000. The CDP is a part of Northern Virginia, the most populous region of the Washington Metropolitan Area.

Springfield became a major retail destination with the opening of the Springfield Mall (now Springfield Town Center) in 1973–75 (the second regional shopping center in Northern Virginia after Tysons Corner), as well as the Springfield and Brookfield shopping centers. The 1980s and 1990s saw the expansion of retail and high-density housing in the area, at least until the opening of the Franconia-Springfield Parkway in 1996, and the Franconia-Springfield Metro and Virginia Rail Express Station in 1997. The mall was renovated from an indoor facility into a town center with a mixture of shopping, office, and residential development; its first phase opened in 2014.

Springfield Mall was a large indoor shopping mall near the Springfield Interchange, the intersection of Interstate highways I-95 and I-495. It contained several anchor stores and a food court. In 2005, the mall was purchased by Vornado Realty Trust, which closed the structure, renovated it to add housing and office space, and reopened it in 2014 as “Springfield Town Center”.

The median income for a household in the Springfield CDP as of 2010 is $84,309, and the median income for a family is $95,158. In 2000, males had a median income of $45,679 versus $36,075 for females. The per capita income for the CDP is $36,405.
