Triangle, VA Revitalization Project

By

Every two weeks I make the trip to the commissary on base (that is Quantico Marine Corps Base).  I had noticed that a lot of the businesses on the corner of Route 1 as you are approaching the main entrance to the base had disappeared.  For awhile, it just looked pretty dead and I kept wondering what exactly had happened.  Did all those business go out of business? 

During this last trip to get my groceries, I noticed a sign that said something to the effect of Prince William County Revitalization project.  Well, that sign really caught my interest.  Even though there were businesses there, it was not the "prettiest" part of Route 1.  I wanted to see what exactly the county had in mind to beautify this part of Route 1 so with a little Google search I found it.  The road is basically being widened to help relieve some of the traffic problems and there really will not be much space for new businesses.  In addition, after the road widening is complete, the county is planning to develop a small village within Triangle. 

These type of improvements can only help home values--so overall I think it is good news for the little town of Triangle.

Hi Luisa,

Triangle has needed a face lift for decades.  It was shocking to see the town leveled. Home values have taken a beating, however if you are a buyer,Luisa is right, the new village concept can't  help but help the depressed home values. Currently the Triangle Virginia homes offer the most square footage for the least amount of money in Eastern Prince William County.Communities that run along side the base such as Thommasson Crossing, Stonewall Manor, and Moncure Woods have tremedous buys!

Still unsure of whether you are willing to take a risk? Read what the county has planned for all the Potomac Communities up and down Rt 1.
