WASHINGTON & RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Comstock Homes of Washington, LC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Comstock Holding Companies, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHCI), announced that it has acquired 24 developed building lots, known as The Estates at Leeland, in Fredericksburg, Virginia within Stafford County. Comstock will introduce an all-new line of single-family detached product at the community, which is located approximately one mile from the Virginia Railway Express Commuter Station on Leeland Road.
Comstock’s entry into Stafford County marks the company’s continued expansion into high-growth markets. Stafford County is 25 miles south of Washington DC, and 50 miles north of Richmond, VA. Stafford County, and the Fredericksburg area in particular, has experienced significant growth in both population and economic development over the past decade. Currently listed as the ninth wealthiest county in America by Forbes Magazine, Stafford County is a popular commuter location in the I-95 corridor and is expected to continue experiencing growth in population and business expansion.
"Our expansion into Stafford County fits well within our strategy of pursuing development opportunities in high-growth areas in and around our core market of Washington, DC," said Christopher Clemente, Chief Executive Officer. “Proximity to a commuter rail station, I-95 and Route 1, as well as regional employment centers in Stafford and Prince William counties, has driven significant demand for new homes in the Fredericksburg area.”
