The Morgan Property Group of North Carolina announced Monday that it has acquired more than four acres of land at the northwest corner of Sudley Manor Drive and Vint Hill Road in Bristow to develop a new shopping plaza with a 7-Eleven gas and convenience store as its anchor.
“From the very beginning four years ago, we believed in this location and its appeal to neighborhood services,” said Trey Morgan, President of MPG. “We wish 7-Eleven much success in this growing area of Bristow and look forward to bringing other retailers to this plaza shortly.“
While no other tenants have been announced, MPG is making available 2.88 acres of commercial land, adjacent to 7-Eleven, for sale or lease to other businesses.
MPG, through its affiliate SDC XIII Sudley, LLC, acquired this land from Brookfield Braemar, LLC; the company obtained a rezoning and special use permit from Prince William County to proceed on the project.
Construction on the new shopping plaza will commence early Summer 2017; 7-Eleven is expected to open late 2017.
As per Brentsville Supervisor Jeanine Lawson’s staff, the commercial property was approved by the Prince William Board of County Supervisors around 2003 when Braemar was built.
As Brookfield Braemar owns the property, the choice of stores and restaurants is their decision alone as long it falls within county guidelines for the commercially zoned property.
Lawson worked with the Brookfield to limit the size of the gas station- there will be three two-sided gas pumps- and to have exterior features of the building and sign match that of Braemar. Those changes were discussed and voted upon on July 12, 2016.
There will be another road built that will go behind the 711 and connect Vint Hill and Sudley Manor Drive. The road was in the original Braemar Village plan.
According to one of Supervisor Lawson’s aides the upcoming 7-Eleven, which includes a small gas station was discussed at town hall meetings and met all the requirements for public notice. The area is not within the Rural Crescent, although it is across the street from it.
MPG develops multiple retail, mixed use, and medical development projects throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast.
There will be two smaller stores that will also be built within that property. The county owns an adjacent property intended for a fire or police station or neighborhood library. As some of those uses may no longer be needed or wanted, it could also become a small park or open space.
