As you know everyone has an opinion (right, wrong, etc.). Considering the history of Potomac Yards formerly operated by the RF&P railroad and all the contaminated soil there, why would anyone buy there? Personally I would not live there, and therefore I would not recommend the location to anyone else.
Good luck in your real estate endeavors.

I really like the location and both Alexandria and Arlington are looking to invest in bus/trolly transit on Route 1 between Crystal City and Braddock Road.
I'm not a realtor though, but that also means I'm not trying to compete with Potomac Yard for sales.
If we could predict the future increase in real estate values we would be investors not Realtors. What you are asking is imposible to answer be for the Potomac Yard area on any other. With that said, the more desirable the area, the higher possibility for increase in value; that hold true for any area close to the DC border, close to Metro, close to/easy access to highways, etc
