    An updated fiscal report says Loudoun County could gain $386 million in taxes from the extension of Metro beyond Washington Dulles International Airport.
     
    The report, cited by The Washington Examiner, says the project would attract more than 4,800 housing units, roughly 1.4 million feet of office development and 670,000 square feet of retrial space.

    Last month, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority gave Loudoun until early July to decide whether it wants to contribute to the extension. The final phase of the project to extend Metro into Loudoun County is expected to cost roughly $2.7 billion and the county would be responsible for about $260 million of that total.
     
    The Loudoun board is currently split over whether to support bringing Metro to the county.
