In 1993, the year that Potomac Mills Mall expanded, the mall was named the state of Virginia's top tourist destination. That certainly says a lot, considering that it beat out Arlington National Cemetery, George Washington's Mount Vernon, Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and the always popular Virginia Beach to earn that distinction.
Potomac Mills is a suburban community in close proximity to Potomac Mills Mall (which is technically across I-95 in Woodbridge.) But can you blame mall owners for using the name Potomac Mills as a moniker? This quaint, affordable, bedroom community conjures up images of the American Dream realized. See more
Balconies are a coveted amenity for many renters looking for high-rise views and opportunities for fresh air. However, you should keep in mind that balconies often come with restrictions.
Before signing a lease, ask about how many people can be on the balcony at once. Also, ask about whether you’re allowed to store a bike or other items.
You’ll also want to know about any maintenance schedules. Using your balcony as storage could result in fines and intervention from your property management.
Keep in mind that not all balconies are created equally. You may discover the views of the parking area are less than optimal or reduce your overall privacy.
Balconies can also get messy with debris, foliage, dirt, and pollen depending on your location. Renters are typically responsible for any clean-up and basic balcony upkeep.
Regardless of the issues to keep in mind, balconies are usually a big win for Potomac Mills renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
