The developers of One Loudoun, the 358-acre master-planned community in Loudoun County, Virginia have announced that Alamo Drafthouse Cinema will open a new location at One Loudoun. Alamo made their first foray into the area in Winchester Virginia. This new location marks the companies advance into Northern Virginia and is expected to open in the spring 2013.
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema combines in-theater dining, drinks, films and events, all under one roof. The theaters are well known for their unique programming events, earning accolades like “Best Theater Ever” by Time magazine and “the coolest theater in the world” by Wired. The theater is the brainchild of Tim and Karrie League who dreamed of opening a neighborhood theater that would provide the community with a great place to come together for entertainment as well as a second home to all movie fans.
“This type of mixed-entertainment venue is rare in Loudoun County and we’re thrilled to bring such a unique experience to the One Loudoun community,” said Bill May, vice president of Miller and Smith, a partner in the One Loudoun joint venture.
“This is the first of many retail and restaurant deals we are putting together to create a new downtown at One Loudoun, a place where people can enjoy a variety of quality shopping, dining and entertainment options,” said Tom Maskey, principal of Potomac Development Group and development manager for the downtown portion of the project.
One Loudoun will eventually feature 1,040 residential homes, 702,000 square feet of retail to include fine dining, upscale shopping, luxury hotel and movie theater, three-million square feet of office space, a clubhouse with pool, and an amphitheater – all surrounded by approximately 150-acres of public land and miles of walking trails. One Loudoun will also be home to the World Trade Center Dulles Airport, projected to serve as a powerful economic development engine by promoting both international trade and domestic investment around the world.
One Loudoun has already completed more than $30 million in public infrastructure including an elementary school and 16 lane miles of new roads.
