What’s to Come at One Loudoun

Welcome to the official blog of One Loudoun – your resource for in depth updates on our plans, our progress, and our successes in creating Loudoun County’s New Downtown.

We are One Loudoun, the newest addition to the booming residential and commercial real estate properties of Virginia’s Loudoun County, and we have some big plans. One Loudoun sets out to not only further elevate the area’s luxury living, but also serve as a powerful economic engine by creating up to 14,000 new jobs both locally and nationally.

One Loudoun was designed by Torti Gallas and The Eisen Group in conjunction with Miller and Smith and SEKISUI HOUSE, Ltd. We’ve already received some good recognition in the area from earning achievements like a “Smart Growth Award” from the Smart Growth Alliance, a group that focuses on encouraging land use and transportation policies that protect environmental assets and enhance quality of life.

When One Loudoun is completed, this 358-acre multi-use, master-planned community will feature 1,040 residential homes, 702,000 square feet of retail to include fine dining, upscale shopping, luxury hotel and movie theater, three-million square feet of office space (wow!), a community center and an amphitheater. Plus, we are surrounded by approximately 150-acres of public land and miles of walking trails. Move here, and you’ll never have to leave!

One Loudoun will surely be a dynamic, multi-purposed domain for the local working and recreational communities. If that isn’t enough, One Loudoun will also be home to the World Trade Center Dulles Airport, which promotes both international trade and domestic investment around the world. Since our original launch in 2007, we’ve already created more than $30 million in public infrastructure including an elementary school and 16 lane miles of new roads. We’re off to a great start!

We’re taking things one step at a time, splitting the development into four phases:

1. We’re starting with the South Village which will include the development of 168 single-family homes, 146 townhomes, 39,000 square feet of retail and 124,000 square feet of office space.

2. The second phase will include the North Village featuring 97 single-family homes, 28 townhomes and 500,000 square feet of office space.

3. The third phase will focus on downtown One Loudoun which will include 446 multi-family homes, 155 townhomes, 663,000 square feet of retail, three million square feet of office and a luxury hotel with 750 hotel rooms and meeting space. Since the community is just as excited about it as we are, we’ve started to lease retail space through Potomac Development Group and new home pre-sales will be available as early as fall 2011.

4. Lastly, One Loudoun will concentrate on their recreational facilities including a community Center, pool, tennis courts and amphitheater.

Join us as we transform the way you always envisioned the planned community with an all-encompassing luxury lifestyle, forever changing the way you work and play. Welcome to One Loudoun.
