Dulles Greenway Envisioned As Vibrant, Mixed-Use Transit Corridor

Acorrding to a recent article in the Leesburg Today newspaper, some projects along the Dulles Greenway have changed focus, including the project envisioned as a keystone development for the corridor.

Owned by the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, Moorefield Station is a 606-acre project on the south side of the Greenway near the Loudoun County Parkway interchange and near the planned terminus of the Metrorail extension.

The majority of office and industrial land on the Greenway is located in eastern Loudoun along one of the county's six distinct development corridors, which include Rt. 7, Rt. 28, Rt. 625, Rt. 606 and Rt. 50. Outlined in more depth in the Economic Development Market Analysis of Eastern Loudoun County, produced in 2004 by Loudoun County's Economic Development Department, those corridors are the future economic engines of the county.

However, the report indicated that the developed commercial space, some 4,008 acres in those corridors, trended toward underdevelopment.
