Loudoun Station Opens, Awaits Metro

One of the first transit-related developments built in anticipate of the Silver Line has begun leasing apartments, retail space near one of two Ashburn stations.

The BLVD at Loudoun Station held its grand opening ceremony Thursday, marking the first phase of the first development oriented around one of two planned Metro stations in Ashburn as part of the Silver Line.

Comstock Partners is the developer of Loudoun Station, which is planned for 300,000 square feet of retail space — 62,000 square feet of which just became available — 1.3 million square feet of "Class A" office uses, a 200-plus-room hotel and about 1,500 homes.

The recently opened first phase includes 357 apartments. Studio units start at $1,300 per month. The largest units, which includes two bedrooms and a den, start at $2,230.

Within the retail space, StarPlex Cinemas has already signed on for 135,000 square feet of space for 11 theaters.

If construction is kept on track, the Silver Line is expected to begin serving Ashburn in 2018.

I looked at those apartments because they are a nice location, however, they are totally overpriced for the size. Bedrooms are absolutely tiny. They need to reconsider their pricing in this economy particulary with small rooms that won't fit much at all AND when I visited, they didn't have storage space available as most apartment complexes do, nor do they offer options on covered parking. Again, totally overpriced for what they have to offer.

Wow, Metro is really bringing top flight development like MOVIE THEATERS to Loudoun???!!! Surely it's well worth the hundreds of millions of dollars to do that!

Of course the apartments are overpriced.... Comstock has to earn back the money they spent on campaign contributions and high-dollar lobbyists they hired to ram Metro through our BOS. Loudoun taxpayers will pay $1.6 billion for the train. Don't forget that the apartments are in the rail tax district, so that has to be included in the rent too... it will be interesting to see if these fill up or not...
