A 180,000-square-foot retirement development is slated as the latest addition to West Creek Business Park.
Lincoln, Nebraska-based Resort Lifestyle Communities is planning the 130-unit Tuckahoe Pines Retirement Community on 15 acres at the Notch at West Creek, just east of Route 288 and Wilkes Ridge Parkway.
Bob Lewis, director of development at RLC, said the budget for the project is roughly $25 million. It will be RLC’s first location in Virginia, joining 20 other facilities nationwide.
“Our market is the top 100 metropolitan areas in the country, and Richmond falls into that,” Lewis said. “We’ve been building up and down the east coast and it’s been good for our business.”
The company’s masterplan for the West Creek development was set to go before the Goochland County Planning Commission on Thursday, but is being deferred for a future meeting. Lewis said RLC is requesting deferral while it “works through due diligence associated with the purchase agreement of the land.”
RLC is buying the 15-acre site from an entity attached to the Pruitt family and Bill Goodwin’s Riverstone Group, which jointly own the 3,500-acre West Creek Business Park.
Lewis said he hopes to break ground on the project this September and open in January 2019.
Cameron General Contractors is listed as the project’s applicant, with Bowman Consulting listed as the builder.
The 55-and-up community will have 130 suites, with one-, two- and three-bedroom units.
Tuckahoe Pines will rise near the planned Sheltering Arms Rehab Institute, a new hospital by VCU Health and Sheltering Arms set to open in 2020, and Bristol Development Group’s 373-unit apartment project.
