MarinasThe final town center, to be located in North Woodbridge, is not as far along as any of the others. It is envisioned as a Gateway to Prince William County, one of regional prominence, taking full advantage of the area’s location on the Occoquan River, I-95, and US Route 1. A North Woodbridge Masterplan was written as a result of the 2008 community charrette on this matter. It calls for a development pattern that will successfully merge traditional urban form – narrow streets, wide sidewalks, transit opportunities, interesting architecture, and inviting public areas – with the services and conveniences that cater to the modern market. The architecture will blend into the surrounding lower density residential and neighborhood commercial areas, creating an inviting transition into the residential, commercial and recreational opportunities located within. Street level activities create an environment where pedestrian movement takes precedence over vehicular movement, and parking is convenient but inconspicuous.

North Woodbridge requires true redevelopment as it already has multiple under-utilized strip malls and vacant lots.  Currently, the 160 acres designated North Woodbridge consists of  +/- 54 separate parcels with +/- 35 separate owners. There is no  single development proposal for the area, and there is a strong desire  by the affected owners to allow flexibility to respond to market conditions.  Therefore, the following ranges are recommended as targets for redevelopment of this area, providing flexibility for the development community and a framework for evaluating development proposals:

ONorth Woodbridge Master Plan picffice:  500,000 to 750,000 GSF

Residential: 2,500 to 3,500 multi-family units (to include the 720 unit approved   with rezoning 2005-00565, at 56 units to the acre)

Retail: 250,000 to 500,000 GSF

Hotel:  260 rooms

Recreation:   Occoquan Marina (with allowable expansion); Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail (relocated as close to the Occoquan River as feasible); usable public open spaces located throughout the UMU area.
