The $2 billion Kincora Village Center was approved last night by Loudoun County Supervisors; that means the 5,500-seat ballpark slated for an independent Atlantic League team is back on track as well.
After launching a name-the-team contest this winter and laying the groundwork for a 2012 opening, VIP Baseball had been quiet in recent weeks; turns out the group was waiting for the Kincora Village Center to be approved by the Board of Supervisors. Now that the $2 billion mixed-use development has been approved, the ballpark is back on track as well. The group is still working toward a 2011 opening, but that may be a little too ambitious: there’s always the possibility of opening in a partially finished ballpark, of course.
