More work to be done before TopGolf arrives in Loudoun
It was noted by board's staff that the project is inconsistent with the Route 7 employment corridor parameters.
The plan for Route 7 is for it to be developed with high-end commercial office space that will attract commercial development and create jobs.
TopGolf, with its driving ranges, large screen HD televisions, restaurant and bar doesn't exactly fit that plan.
In response, TopGolf has moved the facility away from Route 7 to the south and addressed some of the other issues, such as the height of the poles and other basic parts of the plan.
Despite issues staff had with the plan, Shawn Williams (R-Broad Run) supports the project.
"Although not consistent with the plan, I think this would be a great amenity to the Ashburn area and I'm going to encourage my colleagues to meet with the applicant if they have any issues with this particular application," said Williams.
"This is great entertainment for our community and I will be supporting them."
The site plan application was submitted weeks ago to the county and plans are to have the facility up and running by spring 2015.
