Groundbreaking Held For ‘The Shores Club’ Recreation Center At Potomac Shores In Prince William County
PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA. (Oct. 15, 2014) – A ground-breaking ceremony was recently held for The Shores Club, a multi-building, 13,000 square-foot recreational and social center to be located within the Potomac Shores master-planned community in Prince William County, Va. A private club for community residents, the Club is planned to open in 2016.
Members of master developer SunCal’s development team and representatives of NVR Inc., the community’s homebuilder, joined for the ground-breaking moment at the Club’s future site.
Situated on the banks of the Potomac River in Prince William County, Potomac Shores is a 1,920-acre master-planned community being developed by SunCal, one of the largest real estate development companies in the U.S. that specializes in large-scale, mixed-use master-planned communities.
The Shores Club will feature a Social Barn with a spacious multi-purpose room; a covered outdoor dining patio; a well-appointed living room/lounge; a professional boardroom for meetings; and a demonstration kitchen for culinary events. The Rec Barn will offer a state-of-the-art gym with cardio equipment and weights; a movement studio and yoga garden; and member lockers, showers and changing rooms.
Residents visiting the Club will also find a family pool area with sundeck, cabanas, kids’ pool and spa; a poolside snack bar with restrooms; an eight-lane Junior Olympic competition pool with amphitheater-style viewing areas; and community gardens with a working greenhouse/ potting shed.
“We’re very excited to be moving earth in preparation for The Shores Club,” said Eddie Byrne, Vice President of Project Management for Potomac Shores. “We already have new residents living here at Potomac Shores, and I know that they and future residents will be thrilled by the variety of recreational features and social opportunities they will find in their new Club.”
In Phase 1 of the community, 371 single-family homes will be built by NVR, Inc. under the NV and Ryan Homes brand names. To date, in just over a year, more than 154 homes have been sold to homebuyers. Potomac Shores represents a ground-floor opportunity for people looking to live in a high-end, upscale development. NVR is offering beautifully designed homes inspired by the region’s Tidewater architectural style with entry-level homes starting in the $450,000s.
Potomac Shores covers 1,920 acres and features nearly two miles of shoreline, 1,000 acres of preserved hardwood forests and streams, traditional Virginia Tidewater architectural designs and a new Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. The transit-oriented development will offer a mixed-use town center, a new VRE commuter rail station, a planned marina and waterfront village, a resort hotel, and a corporate campus.
