A local developer is looking to add about 550 new residential units in western Chesterfield, all of which would be age-restricted.

The Crescent Group, the development arm of Henrico-based Cornerstone Homes, recently filed a rezoning application seeking to build 328 townhomes and about 225 apartments, as well as commercial buildings, on 116 acres just west of Magnolia Green Golf Club.

The project would rise on two parcels at 18200 and 18400 Hull Street Road.

Targeted to residents who are age 55 and older, the project would house about 200 apartments in a four-story building and additional multifamily units described as “detached cottages,” according to county records.

Cornerstone would be tasked with construction of about 160 townhome units, while Main Street Homes appears to have been tapped to handle the other townhomes, according to a conceptual plan.

Plans also show four commercial buildings on about 7 acres fronting Hull Street Road. The commercial buildings would range in size from 7,700 to 23,200 square feet and would be devoted to retail and office space.

The project is planned to also include a pool and clubhouse.

The concept plan shows three vehicular access points to the development from Hull Street Road, as well as an entrance that would connect to the Magnolia Green development next door.

The land at 18200 Hull Street Road is currently owned by David and Jacalyn Atkinson, and the parcel at 18400 Hull Street Road is owned by Taylor Tract LLC, according to online land records. The properties are largely undeveloped and wooded, and a home sits on each parcel.

The project site has been assessed at about $800,000, according to online land records.

It’s unclear whether Crescent Group is under contract to purchase the parcels. The company’s president, Mike Lang, who is listed as the application’s contact, declined to comment for this article.

The land is currently zoned for agricultural use. The project is seeking to reclassify portions of the site to commercial (C-3) and residential (R-MF and R-TH). County staff received the project application in mid-November.

The Chesterfield Board of Supervisors would have to approve the project. The board’s consideration would follow a review by the Planning Commission.

Cornerstone’s other projects include Villas of Ashlake, The Grove at Lucks Lane and Chickahominy Falls.

Growth is great if infrastructure is in place to support it. Hull Street out toward Amelia cannot accommodate this much new construction with the current access to larger byways.

As a current resident of Moseley I concur. The one great thing about age-restricted developments, however, is that there is no impact on local schools for the most part. There is also much less impact on roads/traffic as the residents age. Still, that Powhite extension cannot come soon enough.

Chesterfield should consider frontage roads through that area.

Wish they would continue the future Powhite extension along US360 down to South Boston as a full fledged freeway.

Let’s see if Kevin Carroll keeps with the promise in his mailer to “keep Matoaca rural” by voting this down

Even rural communities should be exploring ways to allow their aging populations to age in place. Many older citizens who spend their entire lives in rural areas likely do not want to have to relocate to a “bustling” suburb. Why not provide a place for them to age gracefully and in a small community? There’s obviously a stark difference between a 1,000-home development targeting young families and a 55-and-older community. We are quickly approaching the largest geriatric generation this country has ever seen and we need to identify solutions now.

No response, just a downvote. Seems about right in 2023.

My only question is what will happen with these places once the Baby Boomers are no longer living. Gen X has been referred to as “the baby bust.” On top of that, I don’t really see a lot of Gen Xers moving into these places, but I could be wrong. I highly doubt anyone in their fifties is jumping to live there.

Being in the aging marketplace business and the tail end of the baby boomers personally, there is a good 30 more years in the baby boomer sector. 55 and older was just what the government classified as a starting age to legally discriminate in housing development. Very few do move into age restricted/ targeted developments in their 50’s. But the gen X’s will age and transition to these developments during the next 30 years. Many will also be marketable to permanently disabled as these homes typically are very accessible.

I didn’t think about the disabled resident angle. That makes sense.
