Loudoun County Trends

Bisnow, the nation’s largest commercial real estate events producer, hosted the second-annual “Loudoun County State of the Market” symposium on November 28, 2012 at the National Conference Center in Leesburg. The event, which included a “mixed use” panel moderated by Walsh Colucci associate attorney Andrew A. Painter, focused on the future of the commercial real estate industry in Loudoun County. The event featured a keynote address by Loudoun Hounds CEO Bob Farren, who discussed details for his plans to construct a minor league ballpark in the “One Loudoun” project.

The mixed use panel discussed the next stages of development in Loudoun County and the county’s housing, office, retail, and data center markets. The panel included Bill May of Miller and Smith, Buchanan Partners’ Bob Buchanan, John Beatty of Beatty Development, and Buddy Rizer of the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development.

What is important to know in Loudoun County? What is coming? Developers need to be aware of Loudoun County’s “Transition Policy Area,” and the potential for development around the county’s future Metrorail stations. Other important issues include the funding of surface transportation infrastructure, and the existing political climate of Loudoun County.
