The developer that brought Woodbridge’s Belmont Bay to life more than two decades ago is proposing another 1,400 homes, 90 acres of parkland and more commercial space in a plan aimed at giving the riverfront community a fresh shot in the arm.
The Caruthers Companies, based in Northern Virginia, has submitted a redevelopment plan for the community that spans 170 acres and is estimated to cost about $550 million.
The plans are focused around a mixed-use “marina district,” designed by Sasaki, a Boston-based architecture firm. The district would sit between George Mason University’s Potomac Science Center and the Belmont Bay Harbor marina. The area is currently vacant land that backs up to the existing Belmont Bay community.
