Gloucester VA to get it’s own New Town/ Oyster Point ?

Planned for approximately 18 acres in the Hayes area of Gloucester County, VA, Coleman’s Crossing will offer a multiuse, master-planned community that has a mixture of commercial and residential properties. This new community is located on the west side of George Washington Memorial Highway (Route 17), close to the intersection of Crewe Rd. and Route colemancrossingcommercial17. With 86 single-family, exterior and grounds maintenance-free townhomes and nearly 40,000 square feet of retail, restaurant, and office space, Coleman’s Crossing will bring a town center living, shopping, and service experience to the Gloucester area.

If built, the mixed-use development could be the first of its kind in Gloucester, VA.
Zandler Development Co. is the billing the community, dubbed Coleman’s Crossing, as a small-scale version of such nearby examples as Oyster Point’s City Center in Newport News and New Town in Williamsburg.

If approved, it will feature two-story town houses — between 1,100- and 1,700-square-feet — that have two- or three-bedrooms and a garage.
Prices will vary, but they will generally sell between $160,000 and $219,000, according to paperwork filed with the county Planning Department.
Zandler will market the houses to retirees, single-professionals and small families. There will be no age restrictions.

Children would attend Abingdon Elementary School and Page Middle School

The Gloucester County Planning Commission is expected to discuss Coleman’s Crossing next month, after it receives reports about how the development would affect traffic and cultural resources.

The project is being designed by the award-winning architectural and engineering firms of Guernsey-Tingle Architects and AES Consulting Engineers. The homes will be built by Zandler Development Company which Barrack and Records co-own.

Patsy Hall is a local real estate broker and Owner of Patsy Hall Realty and has developed a number of communities in Gloucester County, including Ashdan Woods, a high end custom home neighborhood at Woods Cross Roads in Gloucester. Keith Barrack is a contractor that has been building custom homes in Gloucester for over ten years and is the owner of K.B. Custom Landscaping, Inc. in Middlesex. Charles Records is a Professional Engineer and served as the civil engineer, while working with AES Consulting Engineers, for Ford’s Colony in Williamsburg, the Ferguson Center for the Arts in Newport News and has designed many communities within the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck area. All three of the developers live in Gloucester County.

Coleman’s Crossing would be a very unique, pedestrian friendly development within Gloucester County, similar to, but of a much smaller scale than Newtown in James City County and the City Center in Newport News. The project has more than double the open space and a much lower density than allowed and required by Gloucester County Ordinances. Hall, Barrack and Records envision their project as being a potential catalyst to redevelopment and revitalization efforts in the Hayes area of Gloucester. The property is currently zoned to allow single family homesites and a traditional office center development.
