Construction is about to begin on the next big thing at One Loudoun in Ashburn.
On Thursday, project leaders and county dignitaries gathered near the community’s downtown core to break ground on Vyne at One Loudoun, a project that will expand the urban core with 22,000-square-feet of street-level retail space and 378 one- and two-bedroom rental apartments.
Kettler is developing the project, building on its work in previous Loudoun communities including Cascades, Brambleton, Potomac Station and the Village at Leesburg.
“Now we’re here at One Loudoun, the most modern and walkable community in Loudoun County, and we’re proud to be a partner with RPAI to develop this dynamic, mixed-use apartment community,” said Bob Kettler.
Supervisor Ron Meyer (R-Broad Run), a One Loudoun resident who lives down the street from the project, welcomed the addition to the community.
“When we see retail, office and residential come together like this in a walkable, exciting, next-generation environment, we know that our county is going in the right direction,” he said.
Meyer said he was most excited about the commercial office space. “We hear from developers about begrudgingly building commercial and not wanting to build it. I’ve heard the exact opposite from RPAI. They are excited to work with our Department of Economic Development. We’re working with them on big-time users and I’m happy to hear from them that their commercial office is 100 percent full.”
He said the project has been an important component of the county’s economic development success.
“We have added almost as many jobs as the Amazon deal just in this board term alone without getting Amazon—19,000 jobs in three years and three months that Loudoun County saved or retained or grown. That’s something we can all be proud of,” Meyer said.
