Thriving in a Mixed-Use Community

A recent article about mixed-use communities has been making waves throughout the industry, touting developments like One Loudoun the “holy grail” of community design.  Titled Walkable Communities Can Help Old & Young Thrive, this article falls right in line with the lifestyle we embody at One Loudoun: communities like ours do more and offer more for their residents, making it an extremely beneficial place to live for people of all ages.

An expertly planned mixed-use community entails beautifully crafted new homes along with shops, offices and everything in between, providing a quality of life that is unmatched in traditional suburbs.  It’s this all-encompassing nature that makes One Loudoun the place to be.  In our community, stunning new homes by Camberley Homes and Miller & Smith provide a unique take on conventional dwellings, giving families the room they need to grow in a setting centered around New Urbanism.

In essence, this article describes how residents tend to be more active on a daily basis when it’s a side effect of living in a “walk-friendly, bike-friendly, out-and-about” community like One Loudoun.  And, according to executive director of TransitCenter, David Bragdon, “creating such communities changes family life.” He continues, “It makes all generations healthier, communities become more vibrant – and as a bonus, it sets parents free from the drudgery of endless chauffeuring.”

New residents at One Loudoun are pleasantly surprised when they discover how simple life becomes when living in a walkable community.  Running daily errands, heading to a friends house for a dinner party, or catching the latest One Loudoun event on the Downtown Plaza are all activities that can be done on foot, with designated walking paths to lead the way.  Not only are residents no longer dependent on their cars, they’re saving money on fuel and doing more for their health and well-being at the same time!

Here at One Loudoun, we can’t help but share the excitement so many of our residents feel.  It’s so easy for all generations to fall in love with One Loudoun and all that is has to offer, as well as its promising future.  This year has already been such a wonderful time to be part of the One Loudoun community, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.  Take a look at our new homes available or visit Experience One Loudoun and you too could be thriving in our mixed-use community!
