The New Phases of the Vint Hill Village Town Center presents 300 scenic acres of mixed-use development in one of Northern Virginia’s Fastest Growing Counties
WASHINGTON, DC, February 6, 2016– Colliers International has been retained as the exclusive agent to market the new phases of the Vint Hill Village Town Center, a premier business and mixed-use opportunity in rapidly growing Fauquier County, one of the wealthiest counties in the U.S. (#28 by median household income, U.S. Census data, 2012).
Colliers has assembled a multi-disciplinary team consisting of John Lesinski, Keith Summers, James Crew, Bob Browning and Ben Luke to market the 300 acres with corporate, government, retail, senior living, office, and/or flex/industrial development potential.
The property at 4263 Aiken Drive in Vint Hill, Virginia, just over the Prince William County border, is owned by institutional real estate investor, Vint Hill Village LLC, a collaborative venture led by Ed Moore and Devin Finan of Brookside Development and Lakeside Homes. Already the Vint Hill Village Town Center has attracted some significant enterprises including the US headquarters of the French company OVH, the world’s third largest “cloud” computing hosting company and the 120-bed, $48 million Puller Veteran Care Center scheduled to open in 2019. A division of aviation and defense contractor Rockwell Collins calls Vint Hill home, as does the headquarters of the US Federal Aviation Administration TRACON air traffic control facility and the award winning Old Bust Head Brewery.
The Vint Hill Village Town Center is easily accessible to Washington from I-66 and U.S. Route 29. The property is also within easy reach of Dulles International Airport, Reagan National Airport, and the Virginia Inland Port, a U.S. Customs-designated port of entry.
“Our mission is to complete the transformation of the former military intelligence base into the centerpiece of a vibrant, sustainable community that builds on what is already there from icons such as the Inn at Vint Hill to the surrounding existing neighborhoods and local retailers and businesses already well established,” said Ed Moore of Vint Hill Village.
Vint Hill has a long and storied history. It was a working sheep and cattle farm in the 1860s, the site of a number of Civil War engagements between Union and Confederate troops and then a
country estate in the early 1900s. In 1942, the property was sold to the U.S. Army, which established a cryptology school and intelligence gathering station that intercepted encrypted enemy communications that helped lead to the success of the D-Day invasion at Normandy Beach. At one time, Vint Hill employed more than 2,000 people. After the government base closed in 1997, The Vint Hill Economic Development Authority purchased the land, which originally totalled 700 acres, to transform the property into a flourishing community and engine of economic growth.
“We’re delighted to join Ed Moore and his team to bring targeted commercial and retail business to Fauquier County residents, while delivering amenities and services to this rapidly growing region just outside the nation’s capital,” said Lesinski. “In an area where land can still be acquired at reasonable prices, this asset promises both the location and the scenic countryside to attract employees, jobs, patrons, and visitors.”
