Hundreds of houses planned in Henrico


Michael D. Sifen proposes to build up to 120 houses near Buffin and Kingsland roads in Henrico County.

As many as 220 new houses could be on the horizon from two developers in Henrico County.

HHHunt Communities is planning to build between 92 and 95 single-family detached houses on 56 acres near Holman Ridge Road and Opaca Lane in Glen Allen, according to filings with the county planning commission.

Jim Theobald, an attorney with Hirschler Fleischer who is representing HHHunt, said the company plans to build high-end houses on decent-size lots.

The development is called Holloway at Wyndham Forest, and houses would be at least 2,250 square feet and would have at least a two-car garage. The project is a continuation of the company’s previous developments such as Wyndham and Wyndham Forest, Theobald said.

Theobald said HHHunt hopes to start construction next fall. Timmons Group is engineering the project.

Over in eastern Henrico, Virginia Beach developer Michael D. Sifen has plans for up to 120 residential units on an almost 80-acre property.

Details of the proposed development at Buffin and Kingsland roads are still coming together, said Theobald, who is also working that project.

A proposal filed with the county says that the company wants to build mostly two-story houses of at least 2,200 square feet, although up to 20 percent of the houses could be one-story residences of a minimum of 1,800 square feet.

Michael D. Sifen bought the property for the proposed development in January for $405,000 from Redus VA Housing LLC, according to county records.

Both developers must seek zoning changes on the properties to move forward with the projects.

The Henrico County Planning Commission is scheduled to hold a public hearing Dec. 5 to consider the plans and the necessary conditional zoning changes. Both properties are currently zoned as agricultural land.
