Woodbridge Apartment Boom Continues

WOODBRIDGE, Va. — Construction on new apartment homes continues in Woodbridge.

Elan Potomac Heights is located at the intersection of U.S. 1 and Delaware Drive, in front of the Misty Ridge Apartments that date back to the late 20th century.

These new luxury apartments range in sizes between 680 and 1,050 square feet and will be available in four floor plans. The pricing ranges between $1,400 and $1,800 per month according to the development’s website.

Though the development is actively leasing, there’s no word yet on when the new development will open as a spokesman for the property told the owners’ schedule does not permit them to answer questions at this time, and that more information could be available in 45 to 60 days.

Elan will join other new apartment homes springing up along the U.S. 1 corridor in Woodbridge, including new units near Northern Virginia Community College’s Woodbridge Campus, new apartments near River Ridge Boulevard and River Oaks, as well as new homes built at Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center near Wegman’s grocery store.

Prince William County building officials last year said more than 1,600 new apartment homes will soon come onto the market in the county.

    When are the roads and infrastructure going to be in place to support these new buildings? The existing roads can’t handle war we have now.

  • I wonder what the tax math is on these apartments. I understand homes have to be assessed at around $430,000 to be revenue positive (or generate tax revenue that covers associated county services). Are apartments revenue negative (or generate less in tax revenue than is necessary to cover the county services required to support them).

    If the answer is “no”, perhaps PWC homeowners shouldn’t be too excited about this boom. Anyone know the answer?

  • What roads will be used by the people who move into these apartments? The same roads that are already clogged and slow? It makes no sense to be approving new housing construction permits when our roads are already over-crowded and when there’s no prospect of building new roads anytime soon.

    The BOCS past (Barg) and present (Principi) took money from the developers to get these apartments approved.
