CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA – Charlotte-based Crosland Southeast in partnership with Hartford-based Hutensky Capital Partners, the developer of Stonebridge, and Virginia Beach-based Boyd Homes announce that they have reached an agreement to build a 600 unit urban style apartment complex in Stonebridge. The project will consist of studio, one and two bedroom apartments in four buildings. The buildings will feature amenities and balconies located in an open interior courtyard and are designed to integrate into Stonebridge to allow for pedestrian movement to the retail, entertainment and office uses of the development. The project is currently being designed and is expected to break ground in summer for occupancy in mid-2014.
“We are pleased to be working with Boyd Homes to horizontally integrate 600 multifamily residences into the retail and commercial components of Stonebridge,” said James Downs, partner of Crosland Southeast. “Boyd’s innovative design is on the cutting edge which will help differentiate Stonebridge from other mixed and multi-use projects in the marketplace.”
Stonebridge is the redevelopment of the vacant Cloverleaf Mall and is an 83-acre, 400,000-square-foot, $100 million mixed-use project in one of Chesterfield’s key retail/business corridors. The project is currently home to Kroger’s largest store in the mid-Atlantic region, a 123,600-square-foot Kroger Marketplace, which opened in December to rave reviews and record sales. Another 27,000 square feet of retail is under construction.
