UPDATE: I have have had numerous people ask what’s happening in Stonehouse so here is the latest new I have :
A company called GS Stonehouse Green Land Sub LLC paid more than $76 million to finish developing the Stonehouse area.
Stonehouse was planned in 1999 as a community of about 4,400 homes to go along with more than 3.3 million square feet of commercial and office uses. Since then, 700 or so homes have been built at the site, off Route 30 near the New Kent County line.
Stonehouse Green Land will aim to build the rest.
Basically, they have taken 80 parcels that they refer to as "Land Bays" and divided them into 12 tracts and 4 neighborhoods. Neighborhood 1 will have traditional style single family custom homes similar to those found in the original neighborhood. Neighborhood 2 will have higher density homes (townhomes and something called "narrow single family" which must be similar to "zero lot line"). Neighborhood 3 will have lower density "estate" homes. Neighborhood 4 extends to the river. There are some cliff areas that will be river view condos. There will also be single family homes, open space recreational space and a marina.
They are planning a community similar to their large community in Cary, North Carolina called Amberly . The Stonehouse project has a 15-20 year estimated completion timeframe.
The zoning changes will not increase the total number of residential units. Some of the property previously zoned as commercial will become residential. A large parcel (170 acres) is being proposed as an education site for a new elementary school and middle school. Total residential units will be approximately 4400, and that make it the largest community in our area.
This developer is NOT a builder. They will put the infrastructure together and then sell off the lots in phases to builders. The two Stonehouse Glen sections (where Ryan Homes is located) are not associated with this developer.
