1988 - Dulles 28
Dulles 28, a large multi-use development on a 280 acre site at the intersection of Rte. 28 and Waxpool Road in Loudoun County was one of a flood of retail developments underway in 1988 according to a Washington Post article at that time.
christopher was involved in a replanning of the property in 1989 with Lerner Enterprises for commercial highway use. This zoning allowed auto dealership use and a large part of the project was envisioned to accommodate a number of auto dealerships, including Maserati. christopher did the engineering for all of the projects’ infrastructure and many of the individual site plans.
In terms of commercial use, the first Walmart in Loudoun County was built at the site but when they moved to expand, their site was redeveloped to include the first Wegmans in the County. About 100 acres of the site fell in the Broad Run 100-year floodplain which limited what could be developed there. That floodplain area, along with additional floodplain from the adjoining Beaumeade project (which christopher also worked on) was ultimately developed with the 1757 Golf Course, designed by Jack Nicholas.
