Land on Digital Drive is starting to be prepared for the building of 126 new, rear loaded town homes in Manassas Park.
The developer received an early grading so the workers can begin the process of preparing the ground for development before winter, Manassas Park Planning and Zoning Director and Economic Liaison Vanessa Watson said.
The site plan is current under review by city officials, she said. The final version of the site plan will go before the Manassas Park Planning Commission on Oct. 1.
At that point the developer will obtain the site development permit to install the infrastructure, she added.
Then once complete, the builder, K. Hovnanian, can take over to build the units which will face Digital Drive, Watson said. If all goes well and the weather cooperates, the whole project should be complete in 12 to 18 months.
Word of the project, formally known as Manassas Park Station II, has spread through the Manassas Park grapevine for some time now.
The developer changed the name of the project from Manassas Park Station II to Dominion Crossing mainly because the residents of the Manassas Park Station didn’t want it to cause confusion, Watson said.
It is not uncommon to change the name of a project before it is built, she added.
Dominion Crossing isn’t affiliated with the builder of Manassas Park Station, which Centex built in the early 2000s.
