Caldwell Park

Hanover County, Virginia

Caldwell Park is the first development proposed under Hanover County’s “multi-use” land designation, which accommodates high-density commercial projects with other mixed-uses, such as residential development.

Caldwell Park, proposed by Edge Development Partners through its Scotchtown Partners LLC, is a 120-acre mixed-use development that includes retail, office, multi-family, townhome, and single family uses. The rezoning was approved by the Hanover County Board of Supervisors in mid-July. The new development is located along the western side of Route 301/Chamberlayne Road, from just south of the Crown Colony parkway intersection north to New Ashcake Road.

This project provides much needed affordable housing for the work force of Hanover County. Caldwell Park is approved for 115 single-family lots, 131 townhomes and 286 apartments, along with 200,000 square feet of commercial space. The apartments bolster the limited amount of rental housing options currently available to County residents. Amenities for the apartment units include a clubhouse, pool, business center, fitness center, coffee bar and attached garages. Both the townhomes, located behind the shopping center, and the single family residential neighborhood include centrally located park areas. In addition, active recreational spaces are integrated into the entire community with more than six linear miles of paved pedestrian trails and sidewalks. As part of a new initiative to promote active communities through improved walking and biking infrastructure, Sports Backers’ Bike Walk RVA director has spoken publically in favor of the project’s development. The organization has voiced its support for Caldwell Park’s trail and sidewalk network, citing its numerous benefits.

The project architecture is by Poole & Poole Architecture, in collaboration with Bowman Consulting for civil engineering and surveying, as well as land planning together with Cite Design. Hirschler Fleischer represented Edge Development Partners through the County rezoning process.

Once site plans have been completed, construction is slated to begin in 2016.
