Purchase of One Loudoun Sheriff’s Station Finalized

The county agreed to the $8.8 million deal in 2012 for the station expected to open in 2014.

The sale of a 13.3-acre parcel in One Loudoun for a new Loudoun County Sheriff's Office station was completed Thursday. The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors agree to the $8.8 million purchase in July from One Loudoun developers Miller & Smith and North America Sekisui House.

The site is located near Russell Branch and Loudoun County parkways.

“This is great news,” Sheriff Mike Chapman said in an earlier press release. “Our Ashburn station will be community-based, provide greater access to the public, and will be strategically located to better serve a rapidly growing area of Loudoun County.”

A Miller & Smith representative said such a facility will help make One Loudoun a complete community.

“We’re building a genuine community here at One Loudoun and are honored to have the Sheriff’s Office be part of it,” Bill May, vice president of Miller & Smith, said in a press release. “This addition will allow substantial public safety services to benefit our growing neighborhood and the surrounding areas.”

Officers operating out of the station, which is expected to open in the spring of 2014, will patrol the Ashburn, Lansdowne and Broadlands communities.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema plans to open at One Loudoun later this year.

Joe -- That's outrageous. I wonder if they are giving away for free all the property needed for the soccer stadium on Route 7 frontage that was supposed to be a Town Center? The Hounds were getting the land for free to build their stadium in Kincora before they decided to move to One Loudoun, how can you beat free? I suppose maybe as one explanation One Loudoun needed to recup that prime Route 7 fronage property 'loss' as a result of the stadium, by gouging the county on this parcel. It's just like Robin Hood in reverse, robbing the taxpayers to benefit the developers, just one more time. You just gotta love this bunch we elected huh? When do we get to vote again? Not soon enough.

Aren't these types of facilities usually proffered? This "deal" really looks bad.

Daniel as you can see above even Bill May a rep for Miller and Smith said this will be a great benefit for the neighborhood. At 661 thousand dollars a acre is there going to be be building on it when the County buys it? The Saudi property sold by the County went for 265 thousand dollars a acre, I cannot under any circumstances see a justification for a 661 thousand dollar per acre cost. We are being ripped off to the tune of about 150% increase from the Raging Wire property to this property. Isn't it interesting that Eugene was against this purchase and was for letting the Raging Wire/Saudi property go to bid. Looks like Delgaudio was right in this case the other eight members voted for us to be punked by Miller and Smith.

This deal sucks. Just think how many more law enforcement officers we could have hired, or teachers, or public health specialists or even covered more social services for the truly needy people in the County.

This was Bill May's way of recouping more money from the tax payers pockets. They only paid 35M for the whole One Loudoun property. The Pkwy/Rt. 7 overpass and the Steuart Weller school were built before they filed for bankruptcy, and paid for by a loan which Miller and Smith defaulted on. They continue to fleece the taxpayers of Loudoun County along with all of the Supervisors.
