Plans for a massive housing, commercial business and health care project on a choice parcel of city land will be evaluated today by Williamsburg planning commissioners.
Riverside Healthcare Association’s pitch to build a mixed-use development called Quarterpath at Williamsburg offers some specific details for the first time, with the submission of a preliminary plan.
The roughly 360-acre site, the city’s largest undeveloped tract under single ownership, would be accessed primarily from Quarterpath Road and Route 60, according to the conceptual master plan to be discussed today.
Riverside officials have proposed building the subdivision in six phases, with work on the intersection of Quarterpath Road and Battery Boulevard as the first step. The next two phases would build a nursing facility, then the medical campus.
Last month, the health care group said it would pursue — for the third time — state permission to build a hospital on the site. In March 2007, the state denied a proposal for a $76 million, 43-bed hospital.
These preliminary plans are to give city staff, planning commissioners, City Council members and the public a chance to comment while the project is still in its early stages.
The city is also expected to discuss environmental issues, given that the majority of the site sits in Chesapeake Bay Preservation Areas and will have to meet water quality standards.
Also, no designated bike lanes are proposed for interior streets, but staff has proposed the developers add them on Battery Boulevard and Redoubt Road.
The city’s Site Plan Review Committee supported approval of the preliminary plans during its March 19 meeting. City planning staff has recommended the Planning Commission send the plans to the City Council for approval. But staff has said it wants more information on environmental and traffic impact before any development plans are approved. Pending a request for the Virginia Department of Transportation to transfer land around Quarterpath Road to the city, construction could begin within the next few months at the road’s intersection with Route 199.
