New Waterfront Community Offers Alternative to Homes For Sale in Alexandria“Potomac Shores is a masterpiece. The vistas are great. The challenges are great. The ‘ohh factor’ is there and the ‘wow factor’ is there.” Jack Nicklaus, Potomac Shores Golf Course Designer
The region's first true master-planned resort community is being developed on the banks of the Potomac River in eastern Prince William County, Virginia.
Comprised of nearly 2,000 acres of prime waterfront property, the project's plans include the region's first 5-star resort and spa, a day-to-night town center, a 450-slip marina, and an on-site VRE station. The county has approved the construction of nearly 4,000 residential units, to consist of single-family homes, townhomes, and condominiums.
The developers have also set aside 131 acres for 2 new public schools, 15 sports fields, a police substation, public library, and over 10 miles of scenic trails. Over 3.6 million square feet of office space is planned for the community's town center, and the developer, California-based SunCal, has offered the FBI space for their new headquarters.
The site is already home to a stunning 18-hole Signature Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, and the project's plans allow for 850 acres of natural, open space.
The Prince William County Board of Supervisors recently approved zoning changes to the plan that had already been created for an earlier project known as Harbor Station. That project was abandoned during the recession by its developer, McLean-based Kettler, after which SunCal acquired the land for about $55 million.
Residential living spaces are expected to range from 2,000 to 9,000 square feet in size, and the finished community will provide an incredible living experience for avid golfers, boaters, and nature lovers.
The community is being touted as a smart option for buyers seeking new homes in Alexandria or Arlington, Virginia, due to its waterfront placement and convenient commuting options. For more information about this expansive project, visit the Potomac Shores website:
