Stafford looks to Embrey Mill to Continue County's Record Growth

North Stafford, VA – Upon opening on September 28th, Embrey Mill, an 831-acre master-planned community in North Stafford, Virginia, is expected to become a major driver of Stafford County’s record economic growth. The highly anticipated community brings jobs and new homes to a region experiencing a surge in population and commerce.

"This opening is great news for Stafford County," said Garrisonville District Supervisor Ty Schieber. "Embrey Mill is helping drive Stafford's current economic development by creating construction jobs, while also addressing the region's long-term housing needs as the county continues its track record of attracting high quality businesses that offer residents family-sustaining salaries. The involvement of a national developer like Newland Communities makes clear that homebuilding is back on the upswing in the region."

According to the Washington Business Journal, Stafford’s record growth is being driven by the county’s reduced business taxes and regulations, and by the relocation of 3,000 defense jobs through the BRAC realignment. With nine models and a plan for 1,827 homes at build-out, Embrey Mill is positioned to meet this robust demand head-on.

Embrey Mill couples its large scale with innovative home designs that respond to a new era of homebuilding. Newland’s extensive research and “builder bootcamp” has yielded exclusive plans that reflect the needs of today’s buyers, including open layouts and features like first-floor masters, breezeways to sunrooms, wraparound porches, and oversized garages and mudrooms. The builder team, consisting of Atlantic Builders, Brookfield Residential, Integrity Homes, K. Hovnanian Homes, Miller & Smith, and Richmond American Homes, anticipates selling as quickly as it builds.

Embrey Mill is owned in a joint venture between NORTH AMERICA SEKISUI HOUSE, LLC (NASH), the US business unit and full subsidiary of SEKISUI HOUSE, LTD., Japan’s largest homebuilder and leading diversified developer, and NEWLAND REAL ESTATE GROUP, LLC, whose development business, Newland Communities, is the master developer of the community. It is one of more than 30 assets the NASH-Newland partnership manages together in 11 states across the US.

Opening Day festivities at Embrey Mill include a food truck festival, acrobat performers, pool games, live music, and contests. For more information, please visit www.EmbreyMill.com and follow us on facebook.com/EmbreyMill and twitter.com/EmbreyMill.
