Developer proposes town homes in place of condos for Williamsburg VA site.

Parkway Partners LLC, a local developer is asking the  Williamsburg Planning Commission to allow it to build town homes instead of the originally approved condos for a 3.5 acre site on Parkway Drive.

The planning commission will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, November 14, 2012, 3:30 P.M. in the Council Chambers of the Stryker Building, 412 North Boundary Street, to consider the request of Parkway Partners LLC to amend the zoning proffers for 222 Parkway Drive.

This property is zoned RM-2 Multifamily Dwelling District Conditional and was  approved in 2004  for a 46 unit condominium building.The original approved plans called  for a single four story 46-unit brick condominium building with enclosed parking on the ground floor, and three stories of condominiums above.The project has not been built.

The developer indicated that the proposal is  in response to the current economy and general marketability of condos.

This proposal significantly reduces the density as originally originally proposed Surprisingly the proposal asks that the number of dwelling be reduced from 46 condos to 30 town homes .

The City’s Architectural Review Board approved  a conceptual  plan and building elevations in August 2012

Pictured below are the new proposed elevations showing three story townhomes with front facing garages. Similar to what was built in Liberty Crossing by Ryan Townhomes. At this time no builder has been announced.

The original proposal called for restricting rentals to 15% of the 46 condos. The new proposal asks for 10 of the 30 units to be allowed to be rented.
