The Chesterfield Board of Supervisors approved a new phase of redevelopment at the intersection of Midlothian Turnpike and Chippenham Parkway.

The supervisors voted Wednesday in favor of a county-initiated rezoning and conditional-use request needed to build a mixed-use development on the site of Spring Rock Green shopping center.

The county’s vision for Spring Rock Green includes more than 1,000 apartments, 300,000 square feet of office space, 125,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space, a two-rink ice hockey venue and a 215-room hotel. There would also be more than 100 townhomes, as well as a police station.

Apartment buildings at the development are now planned to be at least five stories tall and feature ground-floor commercial space. A connector road to Boulders Office Park is also planned.

County officials have framed the project as a continuation of redevelopment in the area. Across the turnpike is Stonebridge Shopping Center, which is a redevelopment of the former Cloverleaf Mall site. A new Shamin Hotel property is expected to break ground there later this year.

The 42-acre Spring Rock Green project site at 7100 and 7318 Midlothian Turnpike comprises most of the shopping center, and the existing development there is expected to be demolished in August or September. Outparcel spaces occupied by Chipotle Mexican Grill, Panera Bread and other businesses aren’t part of the project.

Andy Condlin with Roth Jackson Gibbons Condlin represented the Chesterfield Economic Development Authority, which was the project applicant. The EDA bought the project area for $16 million last year.

Chesterfield selected Connecticut-based Collins Enterprises to develop what’s expected to be the first phase of the development, a six-story, $75 million building with 300 apartments, 27,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and structured parking on a 2.8-acre piece of the project area. That phase of construction is expected to finish in mid-2024.

Also on Wednesday, supervisors voted to approve a request by Markel | Eagle to build an age-restricted development of 200 homes on 100 acres off the west side of Otterdale and south of Westerleigh.
