Hundreds of new apartments are slated for the Bon Air area of Chesterfield County as part of a Deep South developer’s first project in the local market.
Birmingham, Alabama-based Pivotal Residential is planning a 324-unit project at 1145 Old Bon Air Road, according to documents recently filed with the county.
The project would sit on 31 wooded acres and span about a dozen buildings about two miles southwest of the center of Bon Air. The firm is seeking to rezone the land in Chesterfield to allow for it.
Pivotal was founded earlier this year and states on its website a goal of developing high-end residential communities.
The company’s rezoning application shows that five townhome-style buildings are planned on the northern part of the property, while four larger apartment buildings would rise on the plot’s southern end. It’s unclear how many stories the various buildings would reach.
Pivotal is represented in its rezoning application by local engineering firm Barthol Design Associates. Pivotal founder Michael Ramsey deferred a media inquiry to BDA, which declined to comment.
Pivotal’s application states that the dwellings would be market rate and marketed towards residents of all ages.
The project’s planned amenities include a coworking space and gym, as well as outdoor features like a pool, ponds, nature trails, outdoor kitchens and surface parking spaces. Pivotal says in its application that the site plan will focus on pedestrian walkability.
Ohio-based Burgess & Niple and Alabama-based Fifth Dimension are listed as the project’s architects.
The 31 acres the project is planned for is split across 12 parcels owned by private individuals, county records show. It’s unclear whether Pivotal has the land under contract. The dozen parcels were most recently assessed at a combined $1.3 million.
Pivotal’s rezoning application is not yet listed on the agenda for any of the Chesterfield Planning Commission’s upcoming meetings.
