Loudoun Hounds (independent; Atlantic League) management say they’re ready to go on a new 2014 ballpark, striking a deal for a 10,000-capacity facility at One Loudoun Place.
“This is an exciting time for HoundsNation and the entire community,” said Bob Farren, President of VIP Sports & Entertainment, the Hounds’ parent company. “It is something we have been working on for over a decade and the first pitch is clearly in sight. When complete, the new ballpark will be the premier sports and entertainment destination in Loudoun County and across Northern Virginia.”
One Loudoun Place is a planned 358-acre mixed-use community in Loudoun County, Virginia, that will feature 1,040 homes, 702,000 square feet of retail including fine dining, upscale shopping and movie theater, a luxury hotel, three million square feet of office space, a clubhouse with pool and an amphitheater –- all surrounded by approximately 150 acres of public land with miles of walking trails. Now under construction, One Loudoun’s mixed-use Downtown district is slated to open in Spring 2013. One Loudoun Place replaces Kincora Village Center as the home of the ballpark.
“We are thrilled to have reached an agreement with the Loudoun Hounds. One Loudoun is the ideal location for this sports and entertainment venue and we are proud to be working with Bob Farren to make his vision for a new ballpark in Loudoun County a reality,” said Bill May, Vice president of Miller and Smith.
