Isle of Wight VA Real Estate Benn’s Grant Development- Revised

The property owners behind the shelved Benn’s Grant development in Isle of Wight , Virginia have given county planners a scaled-back version of their original 1,000-home plan.
The revised master plan now calls for 560 homes ā€” 240 apartments and 320 houses of varying sizes ā€” to be built on about 235 acres around the intersection of Benns Church and Brewers Neck boulevards.
The plan, submitted to the Isle of Wight Planning Department last week, also includes about 700,000 square feet of retail and commercial space.

Almost half that space is earmarked for two massive big-box retailers, like the Wal-Mart that was a controversial part of the original development proposal.
The Isle of Wight Planning Commission is slated to meet with property owners Henry Morgan and Richard Turner to discuss proposed changes to the master plan on Jan. 13.
Morgan said he expects Wal-Mart will remain part of the project, although no letter of intent has been signed with the retail giant.
Not included in the revised proposal are plans for an office park and a county-owned recreation complex that was to have included multiple regulation-sized softball fields, said county planning and zoning director Beverly H. Walkup.
Although it’s still early in the process and he hasn’t seen detailed plan changes, Isle of Wight Planning Commission Chairman James P. O’Briant III hopes the public will be more receptive to the revised plan.
The original development fell through after Armada Hoffler Development Co. of Virginia Beach backed out last February. The county gave the landowners an extension on their planning application to have time to find a new developer and make any necessary revisions to the project.
Morgan and Turner have signed a development agreement with a new developer based in Bristol.
