Brambleton is a census-designated place in Loudoun County, Virginia, off the Dulles Greenway. The population as of the 2010 United States Census was 9,845.[1] Construction started on the Brambleton community in 2001. Brambleton is located 9 miles (14 kilometers) south of Leesburg and 1.3 mi (2.1 km) northwest of Washington Dulles International Airport.

Community design[edit]

Brambleton is an award-winning[2] master planned community located on 2,500 acres (10 km2) of land near Ashburn, Virginia in Loudoun County.

Brambleton is zoned for a full range of residential and commercial uses. The overall layout of Brambleton calls for over 9,000 residential units, including an active adult community, Birchwood at Brambleton; a Town Center[3] with 300,000 square feet (28,000 m2) of retail space and 200,000 square feet (19,000 m2) of office space; an additional 150,000 square feet (14,000 m2) of neighborhood retail and 20,000 square feet (1,900 m2) of commercial office; and 1,760,000 square feet (164,000 m2) of light industrial/flex space. Future commercial parcels are planned within Brambleton.[4]

Brambleton was designed to incorporate traditional neighborhood features alongside pedestrian-oriented spaces and streetscapes.[5] Currently the community includes four pools, over 15 miles of public trails, parks, sports courts, and several Loudoun County Public Schools. One additional public school site remains for the future Independence High School. Brambleton is also home to two Winwood[6] childcare centers and two Chesterbrook Academy Pre-schools.[7]

History[edit]

Brambleton is located at the site of the former community of Royville, VA, which existed as early as 1908 at the intersection of Belmont Ridge Road and Creighton Road. Developing the Brambleton master-planned community began in earnest in the spring of 1999, immediately after Brambleton Group L.L.C., a division of Soave Real Estate,[8] acquired the property. Road improvements were necessary along Route 607/772 to connect Brambleton to Exit 7, Loudoun County Parkway off the Dulles Greenway. Exit 7, the Loudoun County Parkway, is the gateway into the Brambleton community.

Residents in the development are members of the Brambleton Community Association, a homeowners association.[9]

Town Center[edit]

The Town Center of Brambleton contains over 50 retail stores, restaurants, entertainment, doctors, public spaces and commercial offices.[10] The Town Center serves as the location for the community's annual Sizzlin' Summer Concerts, Farmers' Market,[11] Race Brambleton Series[12] and other events and festivals.[13]
