As a transit-oriented destination that blends history and innovation with a strong sense of community, Potomac Shores hearkens back to its roots as an iconic waterfront escape. A commitment to Virginia's coastal heritage is woven through a new vision for today's residents and guests, welcoming families and dignitaries from Washington, DC and beyond.
Imagine a world where nature is protected and enhanced, with nearly 850 acres set aside as natural open space. A community where pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods mean families can walk and bike from here to there with ease. A riverfront respite where everything from public gathering places to private homes evokes a Tidewater design aesthetic that honors pride in the details. That's just what we're creating.
Just 30 miles from our nation's capital, Potomac Shores takes advantage of a prime location prized for its pristine natural beauty, sense of seclusion and uninterrupted views over the historic Potomac River. The community offers proximity to major cities, such as DC, Alexandria, Richmond and Baltimore—so it's a prime alternative to luxury homes for sale in Arlington, Virginia. It's close to international airports, employment centers, shopping centers and neighborhood conveniences. The closest Virginia Railway Express (VRE) station is minutes away in Rippon Landing, where you can catch the train and travel directly into Union Station. Nearby Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center offers day-to-night shopping, dining, entertainment and events for everyone, just off I-95 in Woodbridge. Urban life is always within easy reach—and it's going to get even better.
Future attractions include the convenience of our planned on-site VRE rail station, built with private funds in conjunction with the federal government's $75 million fund for high-speed rail improvements in Northern Virginia. The new double-platform rail station will ease commutes and improve capacity on VRE trains to Alexandria and DC. Residents of Potomac Shores who live within our town center will be within a five- to seven-minute walk of the station. No other new community in the region can make such a claim.
For travel by car, the 95 Express Lanes project is turning a 29-mile section of I-95 in Northern Virginia into the largest high-occupancy toll (or HOT) lanes project in the state. The new HOT lanes are due to open in early 2015—adding even more capacity and providing a faster, more predictable trip for drivers, carpoolers and transit riders traveling on the I-95 corridor.
Potomac Shores invites you to be part of the most prestigious address along the Potomac—the smart choice for homebuyers looking at new homes for sale in Arlington, Virginia. Discover the enduring legacy of the quintessential Virginia experience.
