Ashburn, VA and One Loudoun Featured on Times’ List of “Best Places to Live 2016”

Just today, Time Magazine released their annual list of “Best Places to Live” for 2016, where Ashburn, VA made the Top 50 and included a special mention of our very own One Loudoun! According to the article, Time’s rankings are based on 60 factors including taxes, school districts, job opportunities, etc., with economic factors taking priority in the ranking system. 

Ashburn, VA ranked #22 on the Top 50 list for this year, and with good reason! According to Time, the abundant job opportunities at major corporations, in addition to the close proximity of Dulles International, boost Ashburn high on the list.

Time stated, “At the town’s epicenter is One Loudoun, a community that blends offices, shops, restaurants, entertainment, condominiums, and hotels where people gather for outdoor concerts, farmer’s markets, 5K races, and the December tree lighting ceremony.” In this article, they also mention the new home market that continues to grow here at One Loudoun.

That was ONE Amazing Celebration!

In case you missed it, we celebrated the opening of One Loudoun’s Welcome Center over Veterans Day weekend. And it certainly was one amazing celebration.

We started kicking things off on Friday with Private Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, and in the words of Potomac Development, One Loudoun’s retail venture partner, “We are open for business!”

A huge crowd listened closely as our speakers – who didn’t skip a beat – painted a beautiful picture of One Loudoun’s promising future.

Come Saturday, the community turned out by the hundreds for the Welcome Center grand opening.

Upon entering the tent, guests were greeted by an iPad giveaway, a mime, a caricature artist, a face painter, a One Loudoun photobooth, a DJ, Main Event Caterers’ out-of-this world mac n’ cheese, and The Chocolate Chick’s candy bar that was its own work of art.

Community renderings lined the pathway to tables from Cassidy Turley commercial real estate, retail broker Potomac Development Group and One Loudoun’s home builders, Camberley Homes and http://www.nvhomes.com/.

Make your way through the big tent and you arrive at One Loudoun’s Welcome Center, where guests learned their way around One Loudoun with our official site map and got a sense for the One Loudoun community with our virtual tour.

Missed the big weekend? The One Loudoun Welcome Center is ready and waiting for you to stop by and see for yourself. Open every day from 11 am – 5 pm.
