County: Prince William
Cherry Hill is a community or populated place located in Prince William County at latitude 38.57 and longitude -77.267. The elevation is 39 feet.
Cherry Hill Peninsula was not developed over the last 50 years, while the rest of eastern Prince William was covered with houses, because of topography and soils. The hillsides are steep, and the soils include a marine clay that shrinks and swells with moisture. The expansion/contraction will destroy structures unless expensive mitigating measures are used, such as laying foundations and pipes in a bed of sand, gravel, and imported soil.
In 1993, Cherry Hill was a finalist as the site for a theme park, Legoland. The park was ultimately built in Carlsbad, California, in part because the climate there permitted year-round operation. The peninsula has also been proposed for locating another bridge across the Potomac River, connecting I-95 to US301 in Maryland. The subdivision at the base of the Cherry Hill bluffs was even named "Southbridge," though the likelihood of a bridge at that location remains remote due to opposition from Maryland.
Building on Cherry Hill will be expensive. Not surprisingly, the owner/developer, Legend Properties, wants the county to approve high-density development to offset the costs and maximize profits.
