Redeveloping a racetrack has its own set of challenges. For the Old Dominion Speedway, Stanley Martin Homes decided to redevelop it as a TND style, garage townhome community. Not surprisingly, there was strong support from the surrounding community, which was not amused by the “rolling thunder” soundtrack playing from March through October several nights a week.
The grid pattern neighborhood layout, with a 1½ acre central green, numerous pocket parks and an 8+ acre passive natural area, with walking trails, received strong support from Prince William County staff. The project received unanimous support from the Planning Commission and the Board of County Supervisors when it was approved in December, 2012.
