11 posts in this topic

I just found out today that a HUGE 350 acre plot of land touching rt. 7 and the Loudoun county pkwy is being developed (and has alredy broken ground) on a massive smart growth town center called One Loudon. I is going to have 900 homes, 700000 sq feet of retail and !3,000,000! sq. feet of office space including.........ready..........a................ WORLD TRADE CENTER! one of only 230 in the world. It stands as an example of Virginia's wealth. it also will include in its downtown some luxury hotels, and will have its own elementary school. there are several of these projects going in around VA and MD, but this one will be much more upscale and will be anchored by the world trade center. the trade center will also help attract even more companies to Northern Virginia. I consider myself to be pretty up to date with new development in the area, but I managed to miss this one untill today. what do yo guys think?

The site plan looks... well... not so great. The WTC is cool. How many WTCs are in Virginia already? There's one in Norfolk. Is there one in Richmond or Northern Virginia somewhere?

the architecture is a bit generic, but the overall plan is good. In all honesty, this might be one of the better uses of the word town center...it really looks like one, and a dense one at that.

It must be near Dulles Airport. That is the only reason I can think of why you'd put a WTC in Loudoun County....

I think there's 12:

Richmond is by far the smallest city to have one though.

The colored regions represent each Federal Reserve District.

For example:

The Fifth District, which is headquartered in Richmond, VA, serves the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and most of West Virginia.
