Affordable Housing proposed in Williamsburg Virginia

AS a REALTOR in Williamsburg VA I have always been frustrated at the lack of new homes available under $200,000. Yes the market has increased the inventory but currently the least expensive detached homes are priced at $240,000 those are located in Michelle Point a new development in the growing western part of James City County in Toano. Currently the least expensive new town homes/ condos are located at Pocahontas Square a Health E Communities development in lower James City County off of Rt 60 east of Busch Gardens Townhomes there start in the $190’s .You can also buy a condo or town home in Liberty Crosssing in Norge ( RYAN Homes ), Braemar Creek, Warhill Green or Williamsburg Village at Norge. Prices for these range from $209,000 to $227,000. The RYAN Townhomes are currently the least expensive three bedroom new town home available in Williamsburg/ James City County. Most of the builders are offering some sort of closing assistance. Be sure to use a buyer’s agent to represent you with any of the new home builders. It won’t cost you anything for them to represent you. I have successfully negotiated great deals with most of the new home builders in the Williamsburg VA area. 

Henderson INC DBA Candle Development has submitted plans to build workforce and affordable homes behind the  Candle Factory Shops in Norge. They are proposing to construct thirty percent of the 175 homes as either workforce or affordable. The affordable homes are projected to be priced at less than $160,000. Wile the workforces homes should be priced around $190,000.

Most of the developers in James City County have claimed that affordable or workforce housing is simply too expensive to construct.

Bill Strack of Henderson is attempting to prove them wrong. Knowing that affordable housing is a key factor in attracting and keeping people coming to the greater Williamsburg/ James City County area of Virginia.

Henderson a longtime builder/ developer  ( 50 + years) in the Williamsburg area is sacrificing profits to make the project work. Having been in business for over 50 years

The company is hoping that by offering a large quantity of affordable housing the county will be more likely to approve the project.

As part of the revised plan Henderson has increased the buffers surrounding the development, and implemented green building design principles and other improvements. 

Plans call for  33 detached patio homes and 142 will be attached patio homes. They will be arranged in small, single-floor groups around open-air patios. This design which is very common throughout California, Arizona and the West, has the advantages of being less dense without stacking homes on top of one another. They’re also less labor-intensive as yards are shared with common area maintenance. One-floor living with no stairs also makes them more appealing to active adults.

Also in the works are an 80,000-square-foot assisted living facility next door, for 96 seniors being jointly developed and managed by Crosswalk Church. Planned also are a  mix of retail and office space. Details for that are still in the works.

I am very familiar with Henderson’s recent residential development.  Their Patriots Walk development has to be one of the nicest new home developments in the area. Located in Gloucester VA you would be amazed at the quality of the homes and development especially give that it has a starting price of under $260,000. Huge 3/4 acre wooded lots, open floor plans, and much more

I applaud Henderson for trying to solve a longstanding problem in the county. They definitely have my vote to move forward on this proposed project !
