Potomac Shores designed to be pedestrian friendly, transit-oriented community with amenities sought after by many Washington, D.C.-area commuters.

Prince William County, Virginia (PRWEB) July 10, 2014

Potomac Shores is a new waterfront community that is being billed by some prospective homebuyers as a commuters dream destination for its close proximity to major roads and a variety of planned transportation options.

Situated on the western banks of the Potomac River in Prince William County, Virginia, Potomac Shores is a master-planned community being developed by SunCal. The projects plans call for an on-site Virginia Railway Express (VRE) station, a resort hotel, a planned marina, a town center, office space, new public schools, parks and more.

Some prospective homebuyers who are tuned in to the Northern Virginia real estate market have recognized the potential for Potomac Shores to be a top commuter-friendly option for residency in the Washington, D.C., area.

Its a stunning community, with amenities Ive seen nowhere else in the DC area. Its close proximity to I-95 and the HOV lanes, as well as the planned on-site VRE station, puts Potomac Shores at the top of our list, said Adam Meyer, who has been looking at homes for sale in Alexandria and Arlington, Virginia.

The Federal Railroad Administration announced in 2012 it would contribute nearly $75 million for commuter rail in Northern Virginia, enabling the construction of an additional 11 miles of a third track stretching from Stafford County to Prince William County and the Potomac Shores station. The station will be connected to the communitys town center and will be a short walk for many Potomac Shores residents.
