Revitalizing North Woodbridge: APPROVED

May 19, 2010

Last night, the Prince William County Board of Supervisors approved a major development plan to revitalize the “challenged” area between the Town of Occoquan and Belmont Bay. This is a huge development.

The Occoquan waterfront is going to change dramatically. Lots of new residential space and street level retail. New roads (Marina Drive extension) and traffic improvements (an overpass at the intersection of routes 1 & 123). Horner Road is going to become a walkable main street and the ghastly strip malls from the 1970s can say bye-bye.

Goals for the North Woodbridge Urban Mixed Use Area Master Plan:

  • Office: 500,000 to 750,000 gross square feet
  • Residential: 2,500 to 3,500 multifamily units
  • Retail: 250,000 to 500,000 gross square feet
  • Hotel: 260 rooms
