Potomac Yard is a neighborhood in Northern Virginia that lies between Route 1 and the George Washington Parkway. The area was once one of the busiest rail yards on the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. But now, the “Potomac Yard” name refers to: the neighborhood, a shopping center, and the proposed metro stop on the Blue and Yellow Lines. The Potomac Yard neighborhood lies north of Old Town and near the Potomac Yard Shopping Center. The neighborhood is full of new developments and newly-built homes – and much more is expected to come with the Amazon HQ2 location.
