Eastern Loudoun County will get major mixed use project by 2018

By: Jonathan Groner
On Jan. 16, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors approved a zoning application for One Loudoun, a large proposed mixed-use development in eastern Loudoun County, 30 miles from Washington, D.C., and three miles from Dulles International Airport. The project would take a decade to complete -- it won't be finished till 2018 -- and will include 1,040 housing units, 700,000 square feet of retail space, and 3 million square feet of office space.

This ambitious project, a joint venture of developers Miller and Smith and The Meridian Group, did attract some controversy. Two members of the board voted no, on the grounds that the new project would take business away from Dulles Town Center, which was opened in 1999. (See my Feb. 5, 2007, posting.)

One Loudoun has been formally recognized by the Smart Growth Alliance of the Washington, D.C., area, as a "Smart Growth" project.
