As anyone who’s driven through town can attest, the new Purcellville Gateway project is humming along. The new traffic circle was opened several days ago as they finish the curbing…definitely going to take some getting used to. I think I’m 2 for 3 on almost getting hit driving through there by folks who don’t know how to use a traffic circle. Hopefully everyone gets acclimated to that quickly…and without too many fender benders.
As for the buildings themselves, they are starting to take shape. I will say that the finished product does match up with the design sketches, with building facades echoing the farmhouse and barn look. The original farmhouse has new siding and is being attached to one of the new buildings, and the silo has been reassembled and capped.
The developer has set up a facebook page with updates, including a cool time lapse video of the farmhouse being relocated on the property. An update they shared there on February 29th gave some details on what businesses we can expect:
We have signed leases with Harris Teeter, SunTrust Bank, Hair Cuttery, IJ Canns Restaurant, Coach’s Corner Grill, a family dentristy office and a couple others. More to be announced in the next 30 days as we finalize leases currently under negotiation.
And I heard through the grapevine that Coach’s Corner Grill (a sports pub) belongs to some fellow Cowboys’ fans? I can but hope, right?
I’ll share updates on other businesses going in as I hear more, of course. In the meantime, go easy in that traffic circle, okay?
