227 apartments proposed for Williamsburg’s Quarterpath Development

The Planning Commission will get its first look at a site plan for the beginning of residential development at Riverside’s Quarterpath at Williamsburg mixed use development, a 227-unit apartment complex housed in three four-story buildings.

The Aura at Quarterpath Apartments will sit on the north side of the "village green" of the development. South of the green will be developed as a commercial area.

Although Riverside can build, by right, more than 1,300 homes on the development, the soft real estate market following the 2008 recession has led them to move cautiously.built first because their was a time limit on the certificate of need that allowed for the hospital’s construction.

So far, no single family homes have been planned for the 272-acre development. Residential Streets will eventually branch off Battery Boulevard to the north.

City Council approves changes for Quarterpath

The City Council of Williamsburg unanimously approved  Zoning and parking changes requested by Riverside Healthcare Association at their meeting on 9/13/2012. The developer asked for the changes to “facilitate the success of the Quarterpath Master Plan.”

The changes will allow additional by-right flexibility for developing Quarterpath at Williamsburg as a mixed-use development.

view-all-homes-for-sale-in-village at quarterpathTownhouses will now be allowed to locate closer to the sidewalk, with porches at the property line, and buildings will be able to be closer to alleyways. The zoning changes reduce front, back and side setbacks for town houses in the development from 15 feet to 5 feet, as well as revising  setbacks and height regulations.

Buildings up to 60 feet high can now be set back 100 feet from Route 60 East and Route 199 and Quarterpath Rd The previous regulations required a 200 foot setback.  Detached garages are now allowed as well.

The changes were proposed to facilitate several key elements essential in creating a Village Center, (like New Town) according to the application:

image81. Mixed-use buildings: Buildings with commercial spaces located on the ground floor, with residential usage located on the 2-3 floors above, will create the “Main Street” feeling at the Village Center.

2. Active streets: All of the streets in the Village Center are envisioned to be pedestrian-friendly and will encourage interaction between residents  workers, patrons, and visitors. Thus, the changes relating to the commercial street allow for the ground floor to open onto the sidewalk, while porches on residential streets will exit onto the sidewalk in many locations, and most importantly parking and garages will mainly be relegated to the rear.

3. Rear-loaded Townhomes: In order to achieve an active community with pedestrian-friendly streets, the proposed text changes allow the townhome fronts to face the main streets, while garages, utility connections, and trash will be located in rear alleys.

4. Shared Parking: Parking is a necessity for any successful development, however, it is not visually attractive and it consumes land. By having a shared parking arrangement, the minimum amount of land shall be consumed by parking.

The creation of the Economic Development Parking District  allows more flexibility in parking requirements, similar to what was done for the Midtown Parking District. On-street parking will be able to be counted toward meeting the parking requirements,
