Colonial Beach planners weigh proposal for gated community
Looks like Colonial Beach really is on the move. Developer Chesapeake Realty Ventures L.L.C. is proposing a mixed development project along Route 205. The price tag for these townhomes and condos? $200K for the townhomes and $175 for the condos. Sounds pricey, but I’ll bet that once it goes up, people will snap them up like hotcakes.
In a statement filed with its rezoning application, the developer said it has designed the project to Westmoreland County’s “significantly more rigorous 16 percent maximum impervious cover [asphalt, concrete or other nonporous materials] rather than the town’s 36 percent maximum.”
In addition, it said the project will benefit the community by providing “much-needed, high-quality housing stock” that will “set a standard for subsequent development.”
Hooten said the developers plan to sell condo units for about $175,000 and townhouses for about $200,000. Tennis courts, a swimming pool, two marinas and piers with 159 boat slips are also planned.
The Planning Commission will begin its review of Monroe Park at 4:30 p.m. Thursday in the Town Center meeting room. The Colonial Beach Town Council and Westmoreland Board of Supervisors also must approve the rezoning.
Worth taking a look at if you are in the area.
