Potomac Town Center is one of the oddest planning's of a town center ever. It's a decent shopping center, but why put a major, huge road in the middle between the houses and the shopping center? It makes no real sense. You have to run across from not getting run over.

The townhome part doesn't make sense at all to me either, but they are supposed to add apartments behind the Wegmans, at least according to the site plans.

A friend of mine gets 1350 for a 3/1 TH in Newington Station, with lots of parkland and a decent back yard.

I'm assuming you're talking about Potomac Club neighborhood? With that price, you also have to include the "gated" community, and the nice clubhouse, rock climbing wall, etc..close proximity to I-95 and shopping, which makes the rent there higher. It's the same reason why the apartments right next to the Springfield-Franconia metro are so expensive, for tiny apartments.

That's definitely part of Woodbridge as Wegmans has a 22191 ZIP code. I think the rent is high. My buddy rents an apartment in Kingstowne for around 1600. For the price, I'd rather live in Kingstowne especially if I have to commute into DC.

The townhouses across the street are not officially part of the planned town center -- they are just very close to it. As pgtitans pointed out, the residences in the center are not yet completed and will be much closer.

Secondly, Neabsco Mills Rd. is not a major, huge road. It's two lanes both directions and has a crosswalk.

It's still a big enough road that isn't exactly "walking friendly". I have a friend who bought a townhomes there and they said they never walk to the shopping center cause of Neabsco Rd can be dangerous.


But makes sense.. Seems like they always build the residences after the main town center has been built
