Loudoun County used to be a rural community just a few decades ago until recently. The population has almost quadrupled and it has now become a technology center and a popular residential area in Virginia.

Loudoun County has done just that by making the area self-contained with new mixed-use communities like One Loudoun. In other words, residents don’t have to go anywhere else for anything they may need. This not only attracts Millennials to the area but it creates a county that is posed to evolve over time.
