From The Shores Club and the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course to the swimming pools, parks, trails and community gardens, the resort life is alive and well at Potomac Shores, Northern Virginia’s most exciting master-planned community. And it’s only just getting started. The grand plan for Potomac Shores is quickly coming to fruition as major developments have seen the opening of a new world-class sports complex and plans move forward on the construction of a new VRE train station this summer.
Ali Krieger Sports Complex Now Open
“I’m so excited to see this complex become a home to make future dreams come true for young athletes playing the sports that they love. This complex will allow thousands of kids to live out their dream in this community, just like I did,” said Ali Krieger, a 2016 Olympian, member of the 2015 Women’s World Cup championship team and Prince William County native, as she cut the ribbon to announce the grand opening of the Ali Kreiger Sports Complex this June at Potomac Shores.
This 30-acre complex now sits across from the St. John Paul the Great High School in the Woods District of Potomac Shores. As of the opening, two soccer fields, a concessions building and children’s playground are completed. Further development will extend the complex to include a total of seven multi-purpose sports fields, a softball field and additional parking.
VRE Station Development Moves Forward
As of March of this year, the final designs have been approved on the Virginia Railway Express train station at Potomac Shores. A key component of this community’s emerging town center, the 16,000-sq.-ft. headhouse is now starting construction. The two-story station is set along a bluff-top promenade that will offer commanding views of the Potomac River below. The entry level will feature restaurants, a coffee shop, a dry cleaner and other retail while providing access to the boarding platform on the story below. The current timeline has the VRE station slated to open for passengers in 2020.
Stepping back from the VRE station, the wider plan for the development of the Potomac Shores Town Center is well underway. A majority of the site has been cleared and graded. The first commercial buildings have been completed and are currently accessible via Dunnington Place. The main parkway which will streamline access into the soon-to-be bustling urban center is under construction and set to be largely completed by the end of the year.
More than 500 families have already chosen to come home to Potomac Shores. Now as development ramps up and this premier planned community moves toward completion, the excitement only continues to grow.
