The efforts of the WCL&W team assisted SunCal in fulfilling its vision for Potomac Shores, a mixed-use development that includes approximately 1,885 acres with up to 3,987 homes and 3.7 million square feet of commercial space, including a hotel, town center, marina, 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, a VRE station and a substantial public and private amenity package. Highlights of the project include maintaining 45% of the site as natural open space, transportation solutions, 10 miles of natural trails, a section of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail as part of the overall pedestrian network, elementary and middle school sites and approximately 55 acres for recreational fields, including two lighted artificial turf fields.
In October, there was a groundbreaking ceremony for The Shores Club, a 13,000 square foot recreational and social center that will serve the residents of this Potomac waterfront community. A groundbreaking ceremony for the Potomac Shores VRE Station took place in July and was attended by Governor McAuliffe and Secretary of Transportation Aubrey Layne. The Potomac Shores Golf Course opened in the Spring of 2014.
