Plans for another new sizable apartment project are in play in the Westwood area of Henrico, just west of Scott’s Addition.
A provisional use permit application has been filed with the county for a proposed 5-story, 241-unit building at 4115 Jacque St., near Topgolf.
The 2.6-acre lot is just off Dabney Road in the burgeoning neighborhood that the county’s been promoting as fertile ground for development in recent years.
The land is currently used as a parking lot. Marshall Land Company LLC, an entity tied to Outer Banks-based attorney M. Peebles Harrison of Rose Harrison Gilreath & Powers, paid $1.3 million for the plot in 2021, county records show.
The property owners filed for the provisional use permit, which is scheduled to be heard by Henrico’s Planning Commission at its meeting tonight (Thursday).
The group’s attorney, Andy Condlin of Roth Jackson Gibbons Condlin, said that a developer isn’t under contract to take on the project, but that the owners have received significant interest and that the provisional use permit application is a preliminary step.
“The applicant has seen the pattern of development occurring in the Westwood Area, particularly for older, underutilized properties,” Condlin said in an email. “This particular property is well situated for development given it currently serves primarily as a parking lot and is centrally located.”
County documents show the majority of the building’s 241 units would have one- or two-bedrooms and would include 8,000 square feet of amenity space and a 375-space parking deck.
Poole & Poole Architecture is listed as the project architect. Timmons Group the engineer.
Hundreds of apartments already have been built in the Westwood area in recent years, and over 1,000 more are in the queue.
Spy Rock Real Estate Group is going vertical with a 245-unit building at 2001 Dabney Road and Fulton Hill Properties is planning an additional 253 apartments at the intersection of Thalbro and Westmoreland streets.
Earlier this year the Ukrop family and Pivot Development announced plans for a major redevelopment of their 20-acre Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods complex that would include 1,000 units plus retail, restaurant, office and hotel uses.
